Rozalb de Mura (a word game of "rosée" and "blackberry") is a young Romanian clothing label founded in 2006 by Hungarian-Romanian designer Olah Gyarfas. Furthermore, Rozalb de Mura is developing as a multidisciplinary platform that supports collaborations between fashion designers, visual artists, musicians and writers of various nationalities.
Olah Gyarfas designs every collection around a story. This time, for spring/summer 2008 it's about a hidden desert city. The neutral palette fuses with the rock landscape inhabited only by quiet lizards. The designer uses the classical silhouette as a canvas for innovative details some inspired by the local folk costume.
The inoffensive pleats change into collars with hyperbolical striations continued in reptilian ridges along the spine. The best pieces include the simple white, gray or beige dresses with neo-Elizabethan collar, crest-ended on the back along with the grey dress featuring a sumptuous ruffled collar cascading down the front.
