Fall 2016 Rosie Assoulin 'Holster' Bubble Sleeve Yellow Puff Fabric Tie Dress
The twin of this dress was shown as Look 30 for the Fall 2016 Rosie Assoulin show and it was only offered for sale through the trunk show feature at Moda Operandi. Meaning that only the few dresses pre-ordered were produced in this style making it a rare piece of her work. This dress still has both its original Rosie Assoulin tags and the Moda Operandi tags attached and is in unworn condition.
This dress is amazing and if you are not afraid of a strong colour then you will love the statement it makes. The yellow is incredibly vibrant, it is almost a neon and in real life is even a touch more of an true bright lemon yellow then the tone it photoed. The fabric is light weight, yellow embroidered wool on a crinkled silk chiffon. It is very easy to wear. When the ties are not done up the dress has an almost caftan feel and is cut very loose and easy through the entire body. The design is quite clever. Long ties loop through the plunge at the front neckline and then extend out for several yards. There are little double sided loops that slide and move along the ties that you can adjust to sit where you wish. These help to hold the ties in place and create a halter feel as you wrap them around your body. The front has a little squared off plunge that sits quite deep and the the neckline is cut wide and meant to sit almost off the shoulders. The ties help to suspend and hold it in place as you see it in the reference photo. The dress falls from there in a widening line to the floor and it is cut supermodel long. The sleeves are spectacular and were a cornerstone of this collection. They are each very full and voluminous with ties at their cuffs so you can cinch them in to where you wish. It is a remarkable dress and stunning on. Excellent condition.
The dress is interlined in a matching yellow silk organza. It slips on over the head and you can adjust the attached ties as you wish. Comes with an additional tie as well. All tags attached as per above description. Tagged a US 8. The easy cut should allow it to fit a range of sizes
