architecture.

Style Bible was given a preview of what designer to the party circuit, Rosanna Ocampo, has in store for the warmer months. Print on print pairings and askew draping cover her usual slew of minidresses, once again hugging and hiding all the right places.


WHAT'S IN YOUR LATEST COLLECTION FOR SUMMER 2010?
My collection is called Parc Guell, a nod to one of my favorite architects, Antonio Gaudi, and favorite city, Barcelona.
You'll find my interpretation of mosaics in the unusual pairing of prints in my dresses; More draping and unusual cuts highlight the waist and neckline, mimicking the extraordinary grandeur of his architecture.


WHAT IS YOUR DESIGN PHILOSOPHY?
Sensuality, sophistication, elegance and versatility.


WHAT SORT OF DRESSES DO YOU PREFER?
Those that have a lot of movement—jerseys, tulles and chiffon.


WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION?
Travel—the Balearic islands and French Riviera never fail me. Music inspires me as well. Hôtel Costes, Saint Germain, Bargrooves, and Hed Kandi are among my favorites.


WHO ARE YOUR STYLE ICONS?
Sophia Loren, Margarita Missoni, and Carine Roitfeld.


HOW DO YOU UNWIND?
I go for a run in the afternoons and have a chilled, crisp glass of white wine in the evenings.


FAVORITE SHOPPING DESTINATION?
I love the boutiques in Florence, Santa Margherita, and Forte dei Marmi.


WHAT'S BEEN KEEPING YOU BUSY?
Now that my brand is stocked in Italy, I would like to branch out into neighboring European countries. I also have my hands full with a new venture: a collaboration with a renowned accessories designer in the industry. Stay tuned!
