Rubin Chapelle

    Started by Sonja Rubin and Kip Chapelle back in 2002, the aura of Rubin Chapelle is one of engineered minimalism. Silk is certainly the couple’s medium. The fabric is tailored and draped in almost every way imaginable, ranging from daywear to red carpet evening. The evening gowns are so expertly drafted they don’t need a single piece of jewelry to send a message of elegance. Rubin honed her skills under Vivienne Westwood, which you can see in the amount work put into a single garment. Seams are placed artfully and many garments are cut on the bias, so most pieces really need to be worn to come to life, which may be the mark of a Rubin Chapelle piece. A garment can look great on the form, so great in fact that a navy dress with batwing sleeve, loose through the torso and fitted through the hips, can seem too deceivingly simple to do wonders to the body. But trust us, it does. Show lessRead more
