Romeo Hunte and Ruby Fang
Designer Romeo Hunte showed his 2019 collection exploring the conceptualized intersections between “Street and Luxe”, “Now and the New Wave and 2019”, “See Now, Buy Now” and “Line and Fluidity“.
A color palette of Royal Blue, Berry, Gray, and Black in custom Neoprene dominated the collection with flashes of Neon. Flying Fox fur in Sun Yellow and oversized mink collars in buffalo check intersected with the swim and black denim.
Design-driven Swiss watchmaker Rado completed the looks with bold watches in White and Black high-tech ceramic, HyperChrome, and Hyper Bronze. “We are thrilled to partner with Romeo Hunte and see Rado’s pioneering watches presented alongside his latest collection. We believe this partnership highlights our shared dedication to innovative design and materials,” says Matthias Breschan, Rado CEO.
Ruby Fang, known for glamorous, over-the-top, intricate designs, showed her SS19 collection gorgeous gowns with beautiful embroideries, appliques, and trains floated along the runway as phones and cameras flashed in an attempt to get the perfect shot. Creating the Morpheus collection was all about people who turn their dreams into realities. The Ruby Fang customer is one who creates, thrives, conquers, and inspires, and the designer wanted this to come across with her vision.
Mixing old techniques like ancient Chinese embroidery with futuristic textures and modern cutting linked Ruby Fang‘s philosophy that history and future are intertwined to her apparel designs. She chose vibrant and sparkling fabrics to represent living life to the very fullest and decorated pieces with ancient Chinese embroideries and world-class craftsmanship to make her style distinct. Eveningwear materials like silk, tulle, and sequins were used to create stunning gowns fit for any woman looking to make a statement at her next black tie event. Mock necks and sheer paneling forged an apparent sexy, yet sophisticated vibe while suiting pieces made by the label were fit for a strong, confident woman searching for an elevated ensemble that’s not the typical gown. “Make your life a legend that worth telling” is the mantra that designer Ruby Fang follows and wished that each of her guests would spread her mission.
