This Lifestyle collection is a wearable, accessible extension of the conceptual collection with seasonal fabrics shown in timeless silhouettes.
After pioneering intellectual design and architectural clothing in the late 70s and achieving fashion stardom in the late 80s, Ronaldus Shamask returns to his legendary clean, ethereal roots.
The current collection is based on the timeless design of Mr. Shamask's critically acclaimed spiral jacket, created 1981 and featured in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian Institute, the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Fashion Institute of Technology.
This collection shows sensual, spare, subtle, and wearable pieces executed in timeless shapes and bold colors. In Ronaldus Shamask's hand, rich, essential fabrics are mostly cut on the bias, with seams that curve to mimic a lemon peel. The integrity of the fabric is left intact with natural drape and fold caressing and adorning the body. Cut and structure provide thematic focus. Seams that run from the back of the garment are decorative and functional.
