Fashion enthusiasts, get ready to geek out: Rodarte and & Other Stories have partnered up to launch a spring 2016 collection. Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte have earned a rep for bringing fantastical out-there ideas to reality, culminating in collections that are at once irresistibly charming and crazy eccentric (who can forget their Star Wars-inspired gowns printed with Death Star, Yoda, Luke Skywalker and C-3PO?).
"Through this special collaboration with & Other Stories, we are excited to translate the Rodarte narrative into a new environment," the Mulleavy sisters say. "& Other Stories' unique positioning in the fashion landscape has allowed us to create a truly special collection."
Given & Other Stories' inventory of tailored separates and largely minimalist pieces, we're intrigued how its classic aesthetic will mesh with Rodarte's quirky-alt vision. We're promised a collection of ready-to-wear, accessories, and footwear that will include unexpected contrasts and a selection of unique finishes.
"With Rodarte’s strong co-lab collection we’re adding a new LA-infused perspective to our selection and bringing inspiration and ideas to encourage all personal styles, or stories," says Samuel Fernström, managing director of & Other Stories.
The Rodarte & Other Stories collection will be available in stores and stories.com in spring 2016.
