Autumn/winter 2015 may signal the return of maximalism (if you love metallics and embellishments, this is the season for you) but we all love a palette cleanser once in a while. Beautifully made basics, at the end of the day, are the foundation of any chic wardrobe.
For this reason alone we are huge fans of Los Angeles based designer Rosetta Getty. She may have launched her eponymous label in 2013 but she has always been in the fashion spotlight. She started out modeling at the age of 15 working with luminaries such as Bruce Weber and Azzedine Alaia. At 20 years old she decided to study fashion and enrolled at Otis Parsons in Los Angeles. In the following years she launched several successful fashion labels including a high end children’s wear collection and a couture and evening wear line that became a favourite with the Hollywood set (her husband also happens to be actor Balthazar Getty).
Getty’s current brand however speaks to the modern woman who is looking to build a wardrobe that’s super effortless. Think along the lines of The Row and Celine but with a much more feminine aesthetic. In fact the brand is very “LA” with its emphasis on casual yet elegant pieces.
And while they may appear to be no fuss on the outside, everything looks and feels uber luxurious. Many of the pieces are handmade and can be worn inside out or back to front (they are also free of trims and finnicky closures). The luxe factor comes through in the fabrics which include Japanese twill, stretch-cady and cotton-poplin.
For her upcoming resort collection expect minidresses, tie neck blouses, wrap dresses and one sleeved gowns, all of which are infused with a sportswear vibe from stripes to flashes of scarlet.
Afterall, beauty lies in simplicity.
