The designer who pioneered modernity and austerity in the Eighties made a triumphant return to New York’s fashion week. Once known as something of a fashion monk, Ronaldus Shamask reminded people just what they had been missing, with wearable clothes full of technical details that, in the hands of the designer, seemed effortless.
