Rubin Singer Spring Summer 2009
The title for Rubin Singer’s Spring 2009 collection was “Voyage”, we got more than our money’s worth. His first two look set the tone for a beautiful show with a ecru cotton/ silk ottoman panel dress and a ecru cotton/ silk ottoman suit with python trim. But after that the collection took a different direction with looks like a navy silk chiffon gown with ring lizard harness. Now there’s a difference with mixing hard and soft but silk and animal skin? We never saw this before. Later his “Voyage” took us into deeper waters with an abyss silk satin wrap dress and a oceania silk chiffon gown. It seems that Mr. Singer’s designs are quite radial and lack the direction and focus to sail any ship into port.
