We got a sneak peek of Ruffian’s favorite print from the upcoming Spring collection, and, well, it’s a little racy. Inspired by the Picasso: Mosqueteros exhibit at the Gagosian Gallery this spring, Brian Wolk and Claude Morais channeled Cubism’s favorite titillator for their own designs and came up with a graphic homage to the late great. The resulting geometric nude torso print will be splashed on tops and dresses; a Christian Louboutin stiletto in the same palette is in the works, as well. We love this shot of Morais in the studio, getting work done in a Picasso-tested-and-approved getup, paint brushes included.
