London: After a four-year hiatus followed by two informal presentations, Clements Ribeiro returned to the runway this season with their strongest showing in some time. Perhaps the formality and pressure of putting on a runway helped to bring about the tightly edited, fully realized collection, but whatever the reason, the clothing benefited. Their signature prints borrowed from vintage scarf motifs, while Palm Springs, California inspired the sunny palette. Classically elegant pieces, like slim sweaters, mid-calf-length sheaths and skirts and slightly flared pants referenced the impeccable style of socialite Lee Radziwill. While many designers opened their shows with all-white looks this season, husband-and-wife design duo Suzanne Clements and Inacio Ribeiro did the opposite, closing the show with creamy white ensembles, including a sweet pleated dress with a papery textured surface. Longtime fans of the label and potential new followers are sure to be thrilled with this triumphant return to the runway.
