Follow Her Lead

Rosetta Getty elevates the everyday uniform with the launch of her sophisticated women’s line.

Rosetta Getty’s eponymous new fashion line was born from a conundrum common to most women: the challenge of leaving the house in the morning in an outfit that also suits a cocktail party later that night. “I’ve often struggled to find clothing that transitions seamlessly from one event to the next,” says the mother of four, wife of actor Balthazar Getty, philanthropist and fixture on L.A.’s red carpets. “From a school meeting to a board meeting to a black-tie event, I wanted to make clothing for today’s woman, which addresses the need for a truly seasonless jacket or a really great pair of trousers that look just as good and appropriate at 10 p.m. as they do at 9 a.m.”

Getty’s line, which launches with Fall 2014, is a bit tomboy with a soft feminine finish. Bathrobe coats (Getty’s new staple), poplin shirts, button-downs and column dresses are done in fabrics like cashmere blends and bonded satin, accented with shaved mink and fox furs. Silhouette was also top of mind as Getty designed, and it’s evident in the line’s manifold surprises: pants with an apron overlay that twist on the hip, beautifully done Bermuda shorts with a tailored, roomy curve, and inventive but functional pleats everywhere. Getty previously helmed two other fashion endeavors—children’s collection Rosetta Millington and bespoke line Riser Goodwin—but this effort marks her first in ready-to-wear, and perhaps the one closest to her own sartorial mores. The L.A. native wanted to return to fashion once her children were school-age. “My life is about balance,” she says—and so is her style.
