Rosie Assoulin Resort 2016

The designer played with ruffles, tie-dye, floral prints and hair beading in a resort collection that was an updated take on classic Club Med nostalgia.

“We went kind of crazy with the whole idea of resort — it’s very Club Med,” said Rosie Assoulin during her charming presentation in the West Village as she pointed to a model’s long hair, which had been braided with beads, a nostalgic Caribbean vacation activity for the designer. In the same spirit, her lineup also included some subdued cotton tie-dye looks, each one custom-dyed and engineered, one capelike top paired chicly with a plum taffeta ball skirt.

 

A floral influence ran throughout the collection, but not in your typical way. Assoulin played with petal cutouts on her colorful evening dresses and also on a pair of playful yellow culottes. A voluminous white skirt, its silhouette inspired by the foxglove plant, was one of the collection’s funkier pieces. Elsewhere a ruffled one-shoulder gown in red, called the Bidi Bidi Bom Bom as a tribute to Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, came with detachable sleeves. “And those are our ‘Fiesta’ pants,” Assoulin said, motioning to a pair of trousers with exaggerated ruffle detailing. “They’re literally a party.”
