I am a speck of dust hanging gently in the air as I breathe in the expectation of this Collection: Rosie Assoulin AW14, eager to get close to the flame.
Waiting to feel that magic touch of satisfaction.
She doesn’t disappoint: She has a knack of designing wearable hyper-potent scene stealing pieces that ooze cool glamour like a smoking tea infused cocktail.
This I would happily waft the rest of my days in. Rolled up and poshed with kitten heels or laid back with white sneakers.
There are more pieces in this Collection than SS14 and (as Julius Caesar flashes neon in my mind) it’s not all perfect, but I tell myself: Don’t linger on the negatives…and I love the trousers.
There’s always a reference to the classics but then the heat gets turned up with unexpected references and clever tailoring.
Until I find myself dancing in a light and sun-drenched land, where puddles are figments of the imagination and umbrellas are objects of curiosity…
