Autumn / Winter 2020
The world of the weird and wonderful is found in contemporary womenswear designer Adelina Rusu’s Autumn Winter 2020 collection, Random.
Revelling in the majesty of time and place, Random is a collection of memories and moments, the artwork of 18th-century French artists and the eclecticism of individual style.
Provocative and romantic, Random draws from the painting Mars and Venus surprised by Vulcan by Francois Boucher. Random is a masterpiece of juxtaposition, a narrative of conflict which celebrates in the dynamics of compromise. It is a representation of life, truth and beauty in all of its forms.
Channelling these struggles of desire over duty and comfort over excitement, Random is a celebration of the internal human narrative, exemplified through adventurous styling, innovative fabrications and textural abundance.

The sounds of sea become the rock
The rock becomes the castle
The castle becomes the sand
The sand becomes the wind
The wind becomes the thought
The thought becomes the word
The word is life

‘The little girl in a blue armchair’, an oil canvas from 1878 by Mary Cassatt is the inspiration of Nonchalance, the Fall/Winter 2018 collection – a collection inspired by the nonchalance and the cool indifference of a little girl. The girl becomes the 2018 smart and authentic woman who dresses to please herself -effortlessly chic and infinitely real.
