The Joy of Rosie Assoulin’s FW16 Collection

It was warm inside of Rosie Assoulin’s FW16 collection presentation. It wasn’t hot; nothing could have hurt you save for the multicolored candles sending flames up from their wax turtlenecks, and even those looked too happy to actually burn anything. Warm.

Warmth radiated from the clothes — each dress, pair of pants and top gave off its own glow that guests absorbed as though deficient in Vitamin C. Observers drank up the world of Rosie through a fat striped straw, the goodness pouring in thick like a milkshake. Meanwhile, glitter under and on top of the models’ eyes twinkled. I think it felt honored to be part of the whole thing.

To be in any room with Rosie Assoulin, the person, is to experience the feeling of climbing out of the ocean and into the arms of a beach-baked blanket. But to also be surrounded by her clothes — that’s a cookies-fresh-out-of-the-oven (burnt a bit on the edges, still dough-y in the middle) kind of joy that one can attribute to a number of things beyond her personality. Things like the absolute knowledge that what you’re seeing is exciting for fashion; that what you’re standing in is the light of a young designer’s vision come to life; that this what they mean when they say the word “special.”

Because she is. The collection is.

All anyone needed after leaving the presentation was an exclamation point to say this properly: after 4 days of Fall/Winter 2016 amid a frosty (and sometimes cranky) tundra, what a bright spot!

  • You’re right: There’s much to love about this collection (especially nr. 4, 19, 20, 29), even her models look very interesting!

      My current salary is more than 4400 dollars each week. Over a year ago I was in a horrible condition , jobless and no bank credit . Thanks to one of my friends who df showed me a way where I was able to gather myself and making average of 57 d/h. So it can change your life as it has changed mine.

    such a fucking dreaaaaaaammmm <3<3

  • I was there photographing the event and it was, in a word- magical. I would wear those sparkly pants every single day if I could. The whole show was a wonderful combination of accessibility and fantasy; which to me is the sweet spot for fashion.

    One of the best and most intense reviews I’ve read not only on MR but anywhere this season.. Every sentence evoques the true appreciation you have for these (amazing!!!) clothes and their creator and the description of the atmosphere in which they were presented just came out of the screen and hugged me. Loved it! Loved the collection too!

    What to you call the top of the shoulder cutouts ? Collarbone cutouts? They are SO good

  • Jessicaaaa

    Leandra in the red jumpsuit ASAP please

  • Two things: 1. Lupita Nyong’o needs to get in that red caped jumpsuit ASAP. 2. That cable-knit one-shoulder top/ruffled skirt combo reminds me of what would happen if Jenna Lyons got her hands on the Yves Saint Laurent knit wedding dress (meaning, it’s perfection).
