Rudsak Fall 2012
One of the leaders in Canadian outerwear, Rudsak presented their collection on the fourth day of World MasterCard Fashion Week maintaining the vision of a sexy, chic and most importantly, warm woman.
Many of the coats were kept at a midi length, so as to keep the eye up and not take away from the array of leather and waxed pants. The pieces were perfectly tailored and kept in line with a woman’s curves.
According to designer Evik Asatoorian, “The runway will mirror the reality of Canada’s rugged landscapes with outerwear and accessories constructed beautifully from texturized leathers.”
The collection featured a woodland palate with blacks, “cohiba-coloured pieces… while mustard and red complement.” One of the signature design elements were the detachable lengths and details including the optional removal of the fur accents around the lower waist and wrists. Many of this season’s coats went collar-less and created a more simple silhouette resembling the great tailoring of a fitted blazer.
Certainly keeping audiences warm in the tents, Rudsak’s typical leather and fur coats (including down puffers and wools) made a solid Canadian statement on the catwalk.
