SIGN ME UP: SOCIETY OF RATIONAL DRESS F/W COLLECTION

The effortless chic appeal of these designs definietly speak to me and no wonder, Corrine Grassini, the founder of The Society of Rational Dress is a University of Washington graduate and then went on to Central St. Martins in London, where she refined her design skills.

Her F/W 2009 collection reaffirms her ability to play with the structure of the feminine form. She tailors, drapes, uses prints, knits and silk, at the same time sticking to her mission of making a design that is not only stylish but, "comforting, inviting and inspiring."

She is California born and now LA based, but looking at these designs I can't help but see the influnece of Seattle and London. I live in Seattle now and went to Central St. Martins sister school, The London College of Fashion and the layers, knits and billowy style is the chic look that both cities pine for and live in.

Of course the California girl is apparent with the form fitting designs and the bare legs. Her ability to keep the female figure in mind keeps this line from being schzophrenic.

This collection is not only made up of pieces that I could see myself wearing on a daily basis, as a whole or separately, but most importantly I could be anywhere and stylish.

I love the look on the bottom right (skirt/flats/sweater). This designer is talented. Seriously refined and on-trend. Not that it matters to me (as I like her style), but it seems that she's not taking any risks--her clothes aren't saying anything I haven't heard.

I feel like her type of talent would be put to better use at a place like J. Crew, and perhaps not on the runway.

Good find!

Sign me up too! Love her collection... that sweater at the top right looks so cozy. Good staples to add to the closet.

Great line, I would definitely wear any of these pieces as well. Love the chunky sweater paired with the short skirt.
