With an inspiration bordering on morbid (the death of famed choreographer Pina Bausch) for his spring 2010 RTW collection, it may come as no surprise to some that the majority of Ralph Rucci’s fabric choices, cuts and colors would reflect the somberness of his inspiration.

In keeping with one of spring’s biggest trends, Ralph Rucci’s fabric manipulation revolved around the monochromatic simplicity that is black and white, and, in a fitting tribute to the recently deceased Pina Bausch, pictures of the choreographer were silk-screened onto many of the outfits.
