On the runway

Altuzarra’s take on ruffles met both ends of the sartorial spectrum, i.e. there were both feminine and mannish iterations. On a slip dress (left), bold, statement ruffles were haphazardly placed on the hemline with a relaxed fit, while a shirt dress (right) came in a more structured silhouette for an androgynous vibe, contrasted with subtle ruffles along the hemlines for a more subdued take.


Erdem‘s romantic, oriental twist on ruffles (left) came in a satiny material to boost its luxe factor. The rustic and frayed lines of the off-shoulder dress (right), however, gave off a casual, country chic air.


On the streets

Fashion show-goers turned up in the most dramatic pieces, using ruffles as a stand-out detail in their ensemble.


Also spotted acing the look was streetstyle star Candela Novembre, whose velvet dress in a deep violet hue sported chic contrasting ruffles along its length.
