Rosie Assoulin’s home jars of D.I.Y pickled veggies, which were gifted to her guests during the spring-summer 2020 presentation, had to be as delicious as the collection itself. The designer showed the perfect laid-back look for summer: an over-sized white shirt, a matching bra and a long, loosely-fitted sarong skirt. Another outfit you will cherish when you’re mentally on a beach, but physically in the city: a paisley-printed shirt worn with a floor-lenght skirt, in the boldest orange shade you can imagine. Assoulin’s offering is easy and instinctive, mood-lifting and joyous. The eveningwear, which for instance consisted of a midi dress that appeared to have multiple pieces (a sheer camisole, a triangle bra, and a full skirt) fused together and a dress with flaired sleeves that can instantly become a spectacular top once unbuttoned and worn with pale pink pants under, is all about comfort you want during hotter days or when you’re on vacations. Unforced and always flattering.
