It’s finally that time of year again—a bi-yearly migration of Earth’s most stylish, flocking to the streets of New York City to see what is what for fashion’s next season.
Up-and-coming designer, Rosie Assoulin, kicked off Day 2 of New York Fashion Week with a splash, by showing her SS’16 collection in a drained West Village pool, decorated with a Keith Haring mural.
Assoulin maintained her signature color and fluidity, while also adding a feminine softness and “vulnerability.” She also displayed her talent with the beautifully sculpted, statement earring the models sported.
Despite only being in the business for two years, Assoulin has already been awarded the 2015 CFDA Swarovski Award for Womenswear. She is also known for being one of the favorite designers of Leandra Medine of Man Repeller.
The best way to describe Rosie Assoulin’s Spring Summer 2016 show is fun and witty, yet sophisticated. As stated on Vogue.com, Assoulin dare to create a “romantic comedy” by mixing the looks of the “workingman and vacationing lady meet[ing] at the water’s edge.”
The relatively new designer once again succeeded in designing a jaw-dropping collection, and no doubt, we will continue to see this as she pushes forward in the world of fashion.
