Our first New York Fashion Week show today? Ruffian! Overall, the Ruffian spring 2014 collection had a feminine, vintage, and youthful appeal. Designers Brian Wolk and Claude Morais were inspired by French novelist Francoise Sagan and focused the collection on the freshness and vulnerability of youth. The show opened with sounds of Air Force helicopters as fresh-faced models marched down the runway. The models' side parts and finger curls tied in the French vintage theme of the clothing, which was done mainly in lighter hues against darker blues and black. Simple fabrics were brought to life with vintage floral prints and constructed elements such as collars, bows, ruffles, and peplums. Standout pieces included a stark white jacket, a flowy shirt dress, a floral-print pant suit, and flirty A-line skirts, which all led to a standing applause from showgoers at the end.
