NYFW: RUFFIAN Fall 2012 runway images

RUFFIAN Fall 2012 runway images at New York Fashion Week
RUFFIAN presented their fall 2012 collection at The Stage at Lincoln Center during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City.

I love the double breasted coats which are usually reserved for menswear and aren't exactly flattering to the woman's figure.  However, designers Claude Morais and Brian Wolk managed to structure them brilliantly.

The suits are feminine and very autumn-esque with burnt colors, plaid patterns, and vintage-like buttons.

From RUFFIAN:
Duality is a theme that runs deep within the DNA of Ruffian. Whether it is the inherent collaborative nature of designers Claude Morais and Brian Wolk’s creative process - the melding of tailored and feminine or the opposing inspirations, which fuel their collections, season after season - A Concerto for Two is a culmination of these syntheses and juxtapositions. 
The collection's visual dialogue began while the designers were viewing bronze sculptures of Henry Moore set against the backdrop of English estates. The poetic co-inhabitance of formality and modernism struck a chord, which resonated deep within Claude and Brian. The collection follows the journey of the modern woman's need for both for warmth and familiarity as well as cool razor sharp tailoring through the merging of like textiles in different scales in one garment, the exploration of painterly verses digital plaids and the black and bronze metallic leathers tailored in to Neo-Victorian shapes.
