This season, Rubin & Chapelle picked up right where they last left off - exploring the modernage of the dress and elevating it. The theme and influence of Scottish menswear was explored by the duo throughout the collection. Tweed jackets, kilt skirts, and distorted tartans is where the theme appears most. What we loved most about the collection was the edge fringe detail they added to modernize the line. Guests at the show were packed into the Top of the Standard, sipping on San Pelligrino, studying the collection in detail.
"We're accustomed to solids, but used a lot of prints this season. Laying and mixing prints just felt right," said co-designer Sonja Rubin. The earthy masculine tones mixed in with feminine pink really worked on the print-on-print outfits. Co-designer Kip Chapelle added, "The Top of the Standard has such a great view of the city. We love this space [they showed here last season] and always love seeing the classic hostess uniforms we designed. It's like coming home again".
