Taking Oriental Into Autumn With Ruby Rocks

One of summer's biggest trends for all things Oriental, is still going strong for Autumn and I for one couldn't be happier. I just can't resist the rich fabrics, detailed brocades and a kimono sleeve! My grandparents lived in Hong Kong for many years during the 50's and 60's, and as such their house is a treasure trove of furniture from the East - perhaps that's why I'm so drawn to this trend every time it comes back into fashion.

One brand successfully taking the Oriental trend into Autumn / Winter 2013 is young fashion label Ruby Rocks. When I visited their central London showroom last Friday I was impressed with how easily they had transitioned this key summer print into a new Autumn collection. There were brights like shocking pink, and an eye-catching cobalt blue but there were also rich gold's and classic black - a perfect foil for all those colourful and intricate prints fit for a modern day geisha girl. The jackets in particular look strong; a mix of sporty zip up jersey bombers, cropped bed jackets and silky short sleeve kimono's in vibrant teal, purple and red.

The dragon print is another highlight, re-worked for in black, navy and bright red with yellow and pink accents across zip up jackets, shorts, trousers, and a dipped hem shirt dress. It also features tube skirts and jumpers (see Monday's post on skirts and sweats) both key buys for the changeable Autumn weather. Match together for a bold fashion statement or pair with colour block separates in silks, satins, velvets and leather to match the decadent spirit of the trend.
