New York-based designer Rosie Assoulin knows whimsy and colour. Her exuberant, Insta-ready eveningwear is loved by the likes of Karlie Kloss and Beyoncé, and she’s as much an expert at creating versatile, everyday pieces imbued with emotion and energy.
For her first ever stationery collection, exclusive to Papier, the designer shares favourite watercolour prints from her fashion collections (all hand-painted by Rosie herself). Vibrant paisley patterns, fluid brushstrokes, picnic plaids, fresh florals – so many reasons to relax, be free and smile at your desk.
“There’s such a romance that comes from writing notes to your loved ones (or yourself) on paper and I’m excited to be able to foster and invigorate the meaningful connections that stationery helps facilitate. The colours and organic prints bring me such joy – something I think we can all use a little more of these days!”Shop Notecards
“From day one, sustainability has been important to us. However working towards full sustainability/zero waste, or better yet, creating in a way that rejuvenates our earth, is a work in progress. We don’t have all the answers and we’re constantly trying to learn and evolve, and push ourselves and our partners to do more and do better. I love the fact that Papier stationery is all made to order on sustainably sourced paper, so we can cherish these contacts without harming our environment.”Shop Notebooks
