New York-based Contemporary womenswear line Rae Francis is pleased to present Fall/Winter 2012 collection
New York-based Contemporary womenswear line, Rae Francis, is pleased to present theirFall/Winter 2012 collection, a 90’s grunge rock inspired union of contrasting elements, seamlessly juxtaposed to create a collection for the girl with a toughened, urban edge.
Feminine fabrics such as silk and chiffon fuse with leathers and plaids, while tailored pieces are combined with unstructured shapes, all created to be laid back, easy to wear items made with the highest quality finishes and upmost attention to detail.
A hint of the dark side pervades throughout, as harder elements and masculine touches combine fluidly with more feminine, polished elements in a collection which is simultaneously sophisticated, sexy, and tough yet still ladylike. Nods to the 90’s grunge era, from plaid hoods to leather waistcoats, mix with modern cuts and delicate fabrics to create a look that is utterly now. Panels of sheer fabric and clever cutouts add a 21st century feeling to several pieces to embody the understated, effortlessly sexy look, which is central to Rae Francis aesthetic.
The brand’s signature shirt dress is also given a new twist for the winter in a beautiful silk charmeuse fabric, while the cheeky cutout sleeves – which look just as good on a plaid shirt as they do on a full length dress – are set to become a winter wardrobe staple.
