Just when I thought I might be ready to hang up color in lieu of quiet neutrals forever, Rosie Assoulin came along with her Spring 2015 collection and reminded me that there is so much to love about color (including unexpected combinations).
But really, Rosie’s gift is shape. She uses volume and shape in unusual ways, and as a result, her pieces are memorable and singular. Looking at her collection, there are so many pieces that I’d love to have in my closet. They are wardrobe-makers. (It’s no coincidence that New York Magazine suggested that, to make a statement at Fashion Week, one should wear Rosie’s pieces.)
Her collection was filled with skirts of so many varieties. While those are beautiful, I envision wearing her blouses in less prescribed ways– they all make an equal statement with jeans. That said, if you’re looking for a beautiful and memorable skirt, check out her primary red number or the showstopper ruffled floor-length raffia one.
Assoulin’s voluminous pants are also lust-worthy. Her wide-leg pleated chino could be paired with a thousand combinations, and would make a simple white shirt look runway-ready.
I’m having trouble picking a favorite piece, but high on my list is the white blouse with a stunning multicolored, multi-layer cape. While we’re waiting for these Spring 2015 pieces to become available, here are Rosie’s pieces currently available on Moda Operandi.
