Be still my heart. On this Valentine’s Day, I’m in love with more than my man (sorry honey). Rosie Assoulin only came on the fashion scene as a label in 2013, but she quickly managed to turn heads and create a strong following…and I’m definitely a fan, especially after her Fall17 collection.

This season, she went for fashion as art…or works of furniture to be specific. As a lover of Rococo and Victorian, and an owner of a Duncan Phyfe, I am completely an utterly in love with Rosie Assoulin’s interior-inspired collection. Sumptuous layers of textures mixed together like jacquard, wool, tweed, silk…all in voluminous tailored pieces, or draped bag-like looks to mimic the domestic accoutrements.

A major moment for me was the cobalt dupioni robe over cuffed wood grain joggers. Whhhhaaaaaat?! This woman is just as much an artist as a designer, and her clothes are going to end up in a modern art museum. Sooner rather than later would be a good thing.

And as much as the pieces are art, so too are they wearable. Take for instance the fantastic grey crop knit sweater with metallic lattice, or the wide shouldered wrap jumpsuit in cream wood grain, or the fab chinoiserie style high-neck fitted tunic with cap sleeves over a white asymmetrical cascading drape skirt. Love!

The artistry kicked up toward the end of the collection, with a sundress of faux flower petals deconstructed and stitched into fabric in linear cross-patterns. In a similar motif, we saw a white tiered apron dress with tiny flowers pressed into the fabric. The drama heightened with silk looks, including a divine green high-neck gown with double slits and a removable cape. This was followed by pink perfection in a racer front gown with a red obi-style belt that disappears into a draped back train. So. delish.

And did you check out those shoes? The heels have been chiseled into miniature hand-turned wooden furniture legs. The earrings made into lightweight clay pots, also handmade. This entire collection from top to bottom, was a fantastic and wearable celebration of the artisan.
