Rep Women’s Rights with Society for Rational Dress

We're all for women's rights, so when we found out why Corinne Grassini chose Society For Rational Dress as the name of her line, we fell in love with the designer and her collections a little bit more. During the late 19th century, the London-based Rational Dress Society set out to abolish the use of constricting and deforming garments typical of the Victorian era, and it was their ideology that inspired Grassini and informed her line's pension for pushing the boundaries. "They fought against prescriptions in fashion," she explains, "they wanted to have freedom in what they chose to wear." Grassini has an unparalleled understanding of a woman's body, and this is reflected in shapes that are both flattering and unapologetically feminine. Her Fall 2010 collection fell nothing short of our expectations with gorgeous leather and shearling jackets, long flirty gowns, and a pair of seriously rockin' gold fringe boots. Styled with driving gloves and leather trimming, Society For Rational Dress has something for everyone.
