Rosie Assoulin’s bold take on color and shape

Rosie Assoulin has managed in less than two years to become one of New York’s most promising designers. After interning for Lanvin and Oscar de la Renta, the young designer decided to establish her namesake label in 2013, and her clever mix of retro glamour and sculptural tailoring soon gained her a large list of devoted followers, among them Lupita Nyong’o, Jemima Kirke, Solange Knowles, Michelle Dockery and Lily Aldridge. Assoulin presented some days ago in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District her fall 2015 collection that impressed fashion critics, unconditional clients and fashionistas with its vibrant palette, bold experimentation and timeless elegance.

The collection rather than built around a specific theme, was an impressive study on form and color, with evening wear and day wear almost blended together. Oversized cropped jackets were combined with sculptural skirts and bell-shaped trousers, peplum tank tops in lively colors were worn over pants, bows and flower-like shapes put a feminine touch on many designs, while unusual fabrics like velvet were used quite successfully in sporty pants and blouses.

But what really stole the spotlight were Assoulin’s breathtaking monochromatic gowns and geometric evening dresses that seemed to be the perfect option for any fancy Hollywood event or award ceremony. The collection was styled with some stunning flower petal earrings made by jewelry designer Roxie Assoulin, who also happens to be the Rosie’s mother-in-law, and was overall beautifully constructed and with a certain easiness and wearableness to it that made it absolutely charming. Well done Mrs. Assoulin!
