For her Spring ’17 presentation, Rosie Assoulin did just that.
Standing in a sea of styrofoam, models wore looks that were vibrantly striped, ruffled or cut out to reveal a playful hint of skin. Patterns clashed, shirts were bedazzled with smiley faces and voluminous cuts made a fresh statement.
Assoulin, who won the 2016 Swarovski Collective Award earlier this year, also included over 358,000 crystals throughout the collection. Not only did they cover a colour-blocked kaftan, but decorated shoes and wide-brimmed hats in the form of cheerful tassels.
Sure, worn head-to-toe many of the outfits might be a shade OTT for life beyond fashion week. But worn as separates or toned down with simple accessories, these exuberant pieces will earn their keep in any wardrobe.
