Rosie Assoulin to debut swimwear with Browns capsule collection
today Jul 13, 2017
The New York-based designer will create swimwear for the first time as part of a capsule collection for London retailer Browns. The collection will also include resortwear inspired by Assoulin’s previous pieces.
The Rosie Assoulin x Browns collection will launch on the London-based boutique’s website on July 19 with both updates of Assoulin’s existing pieces as well as designs exclusive to the store. The pieces are intended to be appropriate for both the city and the beach, with reworkings on Assoulin’s signature ruffled dresses and bucket bag included in the mix. The collection will also mark the first time Assoulin has produced swimwear, with a mix of both bikinis and one-pieces in the collection.
The launch of the Rosie Assoulin x Browns collection will coincide with summer collections from other labels carried at the boutique such as Mochi, De La Vali and Celia Dragouni. Prices for the Assoulin collaboration will range from $695 for the swimwear to $3,491 for a dress.
Rosie Assoulin trained under Oscar de la Renta and Alber Elbaz at Lanvin before launching her eponymous line in 2013. The Brooklyn native’s designs are now sold in major department stores and boutiques across the country.
Joan and Sidney Burstein acquired Browns from Sir William Piggot Brown and turned the store into a fashion operation in the 1970s. The company currently operates two boutiques in London and carries labels like Off-White and Saint Laurent.
Farfetch invested in the company in 2015.
