Insta-Critic: Playful, Graphic Dressing at Rosie Assoulin

Rosie Assoulin’s presentation had “fun” written all over it–from the fairy lights to the pop art flower earrings, the vibes were clear. And then there were the clothes: Assoulin showed hypnotizing black-and-white-striped evening dresses, wide-legged pantsuits, enormous trumpet skirts, and voluminous bell-bottoms. Instagram was abuzz about the eclectic show, raving that, in the midst of all the cool, clean, minimalism we’ve seen this week, the quirky mix at Rosie Assoulin brought a much-needed jolt to the senses.
