Rosie Assoulin s/s 2016 collection

Rosie Assoulin, the promising, Brooklyn-based designer whose bold experimentations with color and form have gained her a legion of devoted fans, presented some days ago her s/s 2016 collection during New York Fashion Week. Assoulin, who recently won the CFDA Swarovski Award for Womenswear, chose to showcase her collection, which was inspired by the sea, in an empty public pool at the Tony Dapolito Recreation Center in the West Village, generating a strong, dramatic effect.

The collection included a series of splendid wide-leg pants —Assoulin’s signature piece—, combined with printed blouses with sophisticated backs or with sexy, one shoulder tops; high-end dresses with architectural cuts; printed overalls; voluminous skirts; bikinis that were incorporated in skirts, creating a tromp l’oeil effect, or were used as tops, worn over white shirts; and last, but not least, a series of spectacular night gowns that stole the spotlight, among them a pink single shoulder piece that seemed to be the perfect option for a showstopper red carpet appearance.

Assoulin used a palette of soft pinks, yellows and corals, Yves Klein blue, green, grey and white, accompanying her creations with minimal platform shoes and some amazing, sculptural earrings that were inspired by nature. The collection was an excellent combination of intricate forms, unexpected details, avant-garde design, sensuality, comfort and impeccable craftsmanship, proving that the designer, who started her career just two years ago, is definitely here to stay. “There are no rules,” Assoulin told British Vogue about her collection that impressed everyone with its boldness and originality. “There are so many different women, so many ways and places,” she concluded, revealing that plurality is the key to her impressive designs.
