L.A.-based clothing designer Corinne Grassini founded her chic women’s label Society for Rational Dress after studying sociology, of all things, and pattern-making. Named after a 19th-century English group that rallied against the use of constricting Victorian undergarments, SFRD exhibits Grassini’s love for defying trends and breaking rules. Classic but contemporary, SFRD’s drop-sleeve dresses, silk tank tops, lace-up ribbon shoes and other designs are architectural yet feminine, edgy yet easygoing. Accessories like the Valley Bag backpack, a rucksack with a fold-over top, resemble revitalized antiques; subtle metal accents lend the brand a rebellious spirit. With Society for Rational Dress, let fashion freedom ring.
