Ruffian Inspiration


The Assouline book about the two men behind the NYC-based fashion label, Ruffian, is finally in bookstores. It's a really wonderful account of the creative process that goes into making a classic, yet edgy, line of women's clothing...

If you don't know about Ruffian, check out my post at Ms. Muse! There's more from the book, "Ruffian Inside Out," and a link to the very chic
Ruffian website...

Let me know what you think!

Ruffian's inspiration board is itself quite inspiring with the black and whites and prismacolors!

Great post! I really like Ms. Muse. This was my first time there. Also, I love the illustration. I wonder if they do they do their own illustration?

Great find that I wouldn't have known about had I not read your blog. Thanks!

Just cracked myself up (you didn't mean to;)...yes, I love the book -- could only slightly peruse it as I did not have my white gloves with me in the bookstore.

But I was jostled (to put it nicely) one two many times at Sunday event & out of my mouth popped: "You're behaving like two perfect ruffians!" No, I couldn't believe that was my go-to noun either. So this was amusing in oh-so-many ways, Ms. T. (Hey, those ruffians settled down btw, & I highly doubt they are as talented as "your" Ruffian.)

(going offline, not by choice, grrr end of week most likely. Don't delete me!)

ciao to all..
