When I saw Rosalind Keep's designs, the first thing that came to my mind was "I NEED THIS!" I know we are in the midst of embellishment with the rise of sequins and the steady pace of studs, but simplicity with a twist can be just as captivating and stylish.

I don't know why, but these pieces evoke a childish glee from me. They are just so FUN, that word doesn't seem adequate enough, but its a breath of fresh air in a industry that can be a little too serious.

I know we have seen designers before her play with this trend, but I would never have been able to afford a Comme de Garcon version. I also love the fact that she uses an oversized plain white shirt and a racer back vest to create her designs.

The Keep and Oasis collaberation will be between 35 and 50pounds, oh did you notice I said pounds and not dollars. That's because as of Dec 7th these will only be available in Britain.

Let me assure you as soon as I find out if these will be anywhere online or in the US, I will let you know!

Interesting set! I like a few of the dresses, but I think that after a while, some of the others - the sweater especially - would feel stale in my closet.

(I still want them anyway, haha.)

The dresses are adorable; I could find a way to wear those pieces easily. I think their sense of humor is a nice reminder that fashion is always a mix of substance as well as perception.

I love the first picture, So funny I actually just came back from H&M and saw a shirt this style (drawn on) and I thought it was really cute.

I personally like it. In some styles it even creates a pop out effect. The first picture is great
