The comforting embrace of RUS

RUS is a Spanish knitwear brand founded by two sisters, Pati and Inés Gutiérrez. They are dedicated to providing women with a wardrobe of luxuriously produced garments; to “inspire women to curate and create their own personal dressing ritual”. Iterating on a base of playful, feminine designs season over season, RUS’s SS23 collection is based on tactility and the human senses. The colors and textures “draw from both the poetry and banality of our quotidian lives”.

Striving to suit both the calm and chaos of daily life, the collection features flattering knits with a variety of unique patterns and textures. Influenced by the works of artists like Louise Bourgeois and Rachel Whitehead, the collection is imbued with a feeling of comfort and familiarity. The lightness of the knits, the boldness of the colors, and the immediate sensory reaction to feeling the pieces on one’s body, all give RUS’s garments an evocative spirit.

“…wrapped silhouettes and ruched knitted fabrics hug the body in an intimate embrace, calling to the closeness we share with our most-loved clothes.”
