Documented Fall 2017 Rosie Assoulin Runway Black & White Wool & Silk Swash Buckler Top

The twin of this top was shown with a matching skirt for the Fall 2017 Rosie Assoulin collection for Look 20. These tops were one of the hallmarks of the collection and this one was only produced in limited quantities. The black and white combination makes it so easy to wear and add a little high glamour feel to just about anything.

The top is an amazing feat of proportion and cutting. It has a deep slit open neckline with a ribbon tie at the neck. The front has a curved panel to highlight the cut and neckline and it is cut full and wide through the body.  A partial seam sits just above the waist and the lower part and sides of the top flares out from under that and it is very full and dramatic. At the back it falls from the shoulders and it has a ton of volume as a result. The sleeves are incredible. They are set low on the sides and then pouf out and are cut on a curve so that they follow the arm and maintain the same pouf from the shoulder to the cuff. The cuffs are cut extra long and each one is slit up their lengths. This lets you wear them unfolded so that they sit long and over the hand or you can flip them up like a giant cuff. The fabric is a silk with an ivory wool shot through to create the pattern you see. The wool insets also give it a bit of a 3D feel and added texture. I love it. It appears to have never been worn or worn very little. Excellent condition

Unlined and slips over the head to wear. Ties at the neckline and each cuff has two fabric covered buttons and loops to close. Tagged a modern Rosie Assouline medium.
