R. Rosner's Sheer Spell

Rodrigo Rosner is one on my favorite exponents at São Paulo Fashion Week 2012, and this season he fulfilled my expectations. His winter 2012 Ready-to-wear collection was inspired by butterflies and moths, delicate creatures with sheer wings full of tiny details and tints of colour to make your imagination fly. There is no wonder that the wings were of this precious insects were the main aspect of exploration for Rosner; his collection includes fabrics like organza, chiffon, taffetas. Details where highlighted with embroidered sequins and tiny crystals, as well as an exquisit work of embroided gold lace applications.


The mood of the collection remind us of a gothic princess, if she lived in a victorian garden surrounded by delicate butterflies. The accessories that complemented the collection reinforce that feeling of nostalgia and dark romance, stylers Flavia Pommianosky e Davi Ramos are responsible for this beautiful work. The burgundy lips and fair complexion added the final touch to this gothic like look.


Although the colour palette of the collection mainly contains black and nudes, it is accentuated with purple, indigo, gold and yellow. The mixture of textures is key to the collection, the designer combined the smoothness of the organza with rich lace. The collection takes us thru a silhouette journey, staring with flowy gown  that transform into a more structured shape; maintaining the waist of the main focal point.

A strong McQueen influence is definitely traceable is Rosner's work, however he still remains true to his line of design.
