John Ribbe SS10 Paris

Here are some images from my cousin's show in Paris (they are a bit small, waiting on better ones). He makes clothes that are functional and architectural. He doesn't take from the embellished, fantastical world of Paris, because that is not the German way. Like Jil Sander before him, his clothes are minimalist and ahead of his time. Raised by a German father, I can vouch for the fact that in the mind of a German there is no time for things that do not make sense. The John Ribbe woman is sharp and confident, but most importantly the clothes don't distract; they are just as imaginative as they are supportive of the woman's many colors.
