Steeped in founder Sterling Ruby‘s signature splashed paint since its inception, S.R. Studio. LA. CA. is shifting gears with the new year. Though more ready-to-wear is likely on the horizon, the contemporary artist’s fashion imprint has presented its first couture collection as part of Paris Fashion Week.

Ruby’s wife, photographer Melanie Schiff, reiterated a technique from S.R. Studio. LA. CA.’s Pitti Uomo debut, complementing his rich layers of paint with snapshot collages, creating dense realizations of color and texture across hand-stitched denim coats, chiffon dresses and even the occasional bit of boxy, ’80s-adjacent suiting. “Instrument Cases” — shapely bags made in Italy of high-end leather — lent a graceful edge to the rugged apparel, which ranged from Amish-inspired gowns and headgear to Ruby’s preferred trucker jackets to jackets and skirts densely woven with rug-like texture.

Meanwhile, recent ready-to-wear collections recently surfaced from the likes of Greg Lauren, Eytys and STORY mfg.
