The Astrid Clique

I found the American fashion designer Rosie Assoulin through by ever beloved babe Leandra Medine from the best blog ever, Man Repeller. She writes on her website that "she developed an encyclopedic understanding of fashion and the greater culture that contextualizes it. Her passion flows from an appreciation of the transcendent nature of beauty in all its forms, driving her to develop a visual vocabulary to express concepts that cannot be verbally articulated."
In a similar way to Leandra. Rosie learned a lot of her beautiful draping and skills from Oscar De La Renta before moving to experience the studio of Lavin in Paris. In 2014 she came out and stunned the fashion world with her debut Resort collection.
I was initially drawn to the romanticism in her deigns that you can see everywhere at the moment, however it is very clear to see her cuts and designs are that much more thought through and perfect down to every little detail. I also love the sense of sculpture that can be seen in most of her pieces as their bold shapes and lines create a dramatic but still relatively wearable piece of  clothing. In this way there is a clear sense of ease and comfort in her designs that I absolutely adore. Finally I love that she is not afraid to play with colour, pattern, proportions and texture through the use of ruffles and luxurious draping of fabrics.
