The Sorbonne skirt is inspired by La Sorbonne and The Sorbonne University in Paris. It is a building in the Latin Quarter of Paris which from 1253 on housed the College of Sorbonne, part of one of the first universities in the world, later renamed University of Paris and commonly known as “the Sorbonne”.
Couturier Ruscoe always thought how the leading ladies of yesterday would dress in a chic and classical way back in the days, and of course combined with his quirky aesthetics - this piece and style was created.
This piece is made from a black chalkboard colour faux leather, with hand-painted face features using white leather paint, then topped with pleated spacer mesh of colours neon pink, white and sea-foam green as applique' to create the side-waved hair. The skirt is closed with a zipper and hook at the back.
Easy to wear (wear it like a shirt). Easyto maintain - stain-proof with faux leather (as long as its not paint or anything permanent). No ironing needed.
This dress will fit a Ruscoe size 6-8. For a custom-size fit, please email/contact us. We can definitely re-create this dress to your size. Please do take note that it can take 1-2 weeks, plus shipping time, to create this couture skirt.
Please take note that the inner white blouse is excluded. Please check our collection for this item and for you to get the full look.

The Sorbonne Skirt
Do a mild clean or dry clean only for faux leathers. Warm water with some washing up liquid and a non-abrasive cloth will remove stains or dirt. When choosing a cleaning product, it’s best to ask yourself ‘would I put it on my skin / body’? If not, chances are it’s too harsh for your faux leather. Treat faux leather like your skin – avoid it getting it it too dry and don’t use anything too harsh like bleach. Please keep in mind that direct sunlight can dry out faux leathers.
