Famed designer duo Brian Wolk and Claude Morais aka Ruffian have debuted their Fall 2011 collection on the runway. The clothes have a wonderful classy aesthetic with an androgynous edge due to some of the tuxedo-inspired outfits. The collection also shows off new blazers, skirts, pants and coats with black-and-white flannel patterns.

Check out the brand new Ruffian Fall 2011 collection in the gallery.

Implications - Androgynous, unisex apparel is growing in popularity on account of its rebelliousness and easy-to-wear panache. From bold-faced men's watches for women to pantsuits and tuxedos typically designed for men but form-fitted to women's bodies, feminine adaptations of popular menswear are everywhere in stores and on the runway. This can be attributed to the continuing rise in women's empowerment and the movement away from style to comfort.
