Welcome to Runway Matters, where we’re delivering notes straight from the runway so you can quickly digest the most important trends and noteworthy moments from the F/W 18 shows.
Rosie Assoulin is one of those fashion week presentations that editors, myself included, spend all week looking forward to. Not for the snacks (though this year’s crepe station was a definite crowd pleaser), but for the unending happiness we feel walking into the room. The designer season after season manages to weave smile-inciting details into her clothes – a whimsical neckline here, a jangly earring there.
This season was no exception. Models danced and swayed dressed in marbled suits, spangled dresses, and Rosie’s signature pops of color. What connects the designs is not neccessarily a cohesive theme, but an energy that seemes to flow effortlessly from one look to the next. Every seem and button is a bright sparks that make it hard to know where to look next.
And, since it’s the age of Instagram after all, it should come as no surprise that everyone in the room was snapping detail shots of the collection left and right. Below, find four details to know from the show.
One theme that continued throughout the collection was a marbled pattern that models wore from head-to-toe.
While a gown may make for traditional evening-wear, this stunning two-piece is proof that there’s another way to do black tie dressing.
We love Rosie’s clothes, but this season her shoes were equally drool-worthy, from delicate mules to funky bucket boots.
There’s never a shortage of color at a Rosie show, but this season more than ever, it confirmed the fact that power clashing colors is here to stay.
