Adelina Rusu Cruise/Resort 2018

Inspired by an Edouard Manet painting, Romanian designer Adelina Rusu successfully jumped right into the heart of its innocence.

Taking the risk of using just one pattern and one color for contrast, Rusu painted her collection head-to-toe in a soothing periwinkle.

With a single glance, one can see the energy poured into her work is woven through every thread of every piece, oozing fun, excitement, and a childlike adoration. 

Remaining unrestricted by garments, or life, Rusu's cinched waists with billowy silhouettes give off a sense of freedom—the idea that while wearing these clothes, you can fly into unknown waters. 

Take a look at her designs below and be inspired.
