Last week I attended a wonderful event celebrating the launch of the Joseph Ribkoff brand in the Gateway Stuttafords store. Now, for those of you who have never heard of Joseph Ribkoff (and I was one of them) this stylish brand hails from Canada and contains classic and on trend items in each collection – I fell in love hard with a stunning multi-color jacket, in my head I’m calling it the techni-colored dream coat 😛
We were treated to delicious canapés, bubbles from JC Le Roux and the tastiest lemonade as we perused the racks of the Spring/ Summer 2016 range. Joseph Ribkoff clothing is what I dream of wearing in my life, classic but on trend pieces which add a casual luxury to your wardrobe. The collection is full of surprise on trend elements, fringing, zips, cut outs, gold detailing and sparkle – not done in a kitschy or garish way but rather accentuating the outfit and of course the person wearing the clothes. To tell you more about the range:
ABOUT THE JOSEPH RIBKOFF SPRING 2016 COLLECTION:
After the exuberance of the holiday season, the Joseph Ribkoff woman reflects on the past year and sets new goals and dreams. She is re-energized and ready to take on the New Year. She is craving new dresses and versatile separates in her wardrobe to match her new energy.
There is a chic ‘ease of dressing’ this season; silhouettes are softened and draped with sheer layers and overlapping asymmetrical lines. Discover special design features throughout the collection such as novelty fringe trim, zippers and gold hardware. Our signature ‘Silky Knit’ and drapey ‘Sublime Georgette’ play perfectly into this effortlessly sexy look. The importance of black and white continues with stripes and geos leading the prints for this collection. Blocked in different scales and popped with bright colour accents and spring florals, the Joseph Ribkoff woman has the perfect wardrobe.
A great plus to the Joseph Ribkoff brand is that any women of any size can wear these items, the brand is proudly plus-size friendly catering for sizes up to 22. Plus size girls hold on to your wallets because you are going to be in L.O.V.E! I loved how comfortable all the clothes looked, the super sexy dresses showed the perfect amount of skin for sexiness and gave off an effortless glamour while not making you feel like you had too much on show. This range definitely has an item for every ae as well, the funky prints, the sheer jackets all scream young ladies, the classy jackets and more demure use of pattern in some of the dressed would look lovely on ladies of any age.
So where can you find Joseph Ribkoff?
So far there are only 3 Stuttafords stores which are stocking the brand – so it is not yet available nationwide – keep an eye out in your local Stuttafords to see if they will be opening there. You will also be able to see this and other up-and-coming ranges on their brand ambassador every Sunday evening on your Telly – Devi from Carte Blache proudly wears Joeph Ribkoff clothing, another plus is you can find most of what devi is wearing in stores now, if not the Stuttafords supplier will gladly assist you in ordering the item.
