Spring 2017 Ready-to-Wear : Rosetta Getty

I first discovered Rosetta Getty when Monica Rose (@monicarosestyle) styled the ever gorgeous Gigi Hadid in the designer around 6 months ago. I was so intrigued by, to me personally, a new discovered designer. It's exciting for me because I can then look into that brand and fall in love with their pieces and Rosetta Getty really had be gripped.

Rosetta is of course known for her fabulous lifestyle and family life, but it was only 2 years ago in the Fall of 2014 that she decided to create her own clothing line. She had said, "If I am not doing a collection, I'm talking about it." Having said this, at the age of 44, this wasn't the first time she was catapulted into the fashion industry. At just 14 years old she was discovered as a model, and would regularly travel between New York, Milan and Paris to walk in shows, as well as being notably photographed for the very talented, Azzedine Alaia's first book which is now highly collectable. She has said in the past that the majority of her wardrobe are pieces from designers such as Celine, Maison Margiela and Comme des Garcons which when I look at the collection, is most likely the inspiration for her own collections. She has incorporated her own personal style into collections which have a different Rosetta twist.

When I look at this collection, I see the clothes as art. Cliche? Maybe, but the geometric shapes and different silouhettes that she has designed are definitely out of the norm. Although simple, clean and crisp, the shapes she creates definitely make the pieces stand out. Contradicting this however, a lot of her pieces are very oversized and shapeless, which is perfect for Summer when her clients want to feel cool and comfortable. These shapes create a very relaxed and casual feel to a luxurious collection,  and finished with slip-on flats or gladiatorial sandals, creates an effortless summer look.
