Ruben Perlotti 2012

We are very excited about the 2012 bridal and evening collection by Ruben Perlotti, to be launched at Bridal Fashion Week, Auckland in April 2011. Below is a press release that we received this morning about the stunning new designs…

The elegant woman, sensual and a bit proud, has been the inspiration for new RUBEN PERLOTTI bridal and evening 2012 collection.

The magnificent gold and ivory chryselephantine goddess statues that decorated the wealthiest homes and temples in Greece circa 1600 BC were the original cult objects of the ancient world.

The priestesses and deities these statues depicted had something to tell their mortal followers about the unique power created by the proper balance of sensuality and restraint.

In the 1890s, the chryselephantine statue reappeared again and again in the Art Nouveau period’s paintings and sculptures. In the 1920s Art Deco period between the two world wars, modernist dancers Josephine Baker and Isadora Duncan shocked their audiences with extravagant sets, dances and poses that brought the chryselephantine goddess statue to life.

Says Ruben, “As much as I am inspired by the exoticism, charm and volatility of that golden age of ancient Greece, I am also possessed by this fusion of the modern and the ancient cultures, the oriental and the occidental worlds.

I see two forms of strong, sensual and proud images – and I think that is somewhat the women of today. In my mind, I can picture all these qualities intertwined. This collection’s use of materials, designs and metal encrustations reflect the magical expression of what is timeless about these goddesses – her elegance, sensuality, and not just a little bit of pride.”
