See All the Pieces of the Rodarte & Other Stories Collection

Are you feeling blue now that the fashion weeks are over? Don’t worry, one of last year’s most thrilling announcement is finally showing (and selling) its results. When Rodarte announced teaming up with & Other Stories to create a capsule collection, everybody couldn’t wait to see all the pieces that the duo had in store for us. While the news hit the headlines in October last year, the Rodarte & Other Stories 2016 collection is expected to be available both online and in bricks-and-mortar stores on March 17th.

Although just a few days are left for us to be able to actually buy the pieces, the wait is finally over as we can now at least have a look at all the 57 designs of the Rodarte x & Other Stories collection. Ranging from $29 to $325, the collection is pretty affordable too and is in the perfect & Other Stories style. At the same time, it embraces Rodarte’s signature diaphanous designs and edgy layered dresses.

“Through this special collaboration with & Other Stories, we are excited to translate the Rodarte narrative into a new environment. & Other Stories’ unique positioning in the fashion landscape has allowed us to create a truly special collection,” said Laura Mulleavy, one of Rodarte’s creative directors, and while browsing through the pieces we could definitely confirm that the fruits of such a partnership could be easily described as the perfect combination of these equally appealing, yet quite different worlds.

Focusing on a minimalistic style and contrasting color-blocking motifs, the line-up is an ethereal mixture of athleisure-inspired pieces and Nineties vibes, through which both Rodarte and & Other Stories managed to create one-of-a-kind pieces that will make anyone stand out of the crowd. The collection’s most recurring motifs are those of the wrapped cuts, to be seen both in the miniskirts and midi dresses (those would be really perfect for any Nineties boy/girl band reunion concert!), but also velvet roomy shorts and pants (which give the collection some fancy loungewear vibes too), and layered V-neckline cropped tops, not to mention the many jackets with contrasting hems that are just the icing on the cake (and are basically minimalism at its best).

As for the prints, those who particularly enjoy & Other Stories’ famous polka dots and fairy cosmic patterns will rejoice to spot them here and there throughout the proposals, especially within the slip dresses and cozy sweaters. Stripes and abstract retro motifs got embellished with metallic appliqués and fabrics, adding a sort of haute couture meets casual/urban-chic style to the entire collection. The patchwork motif is strong in this one too, and goes all the way from head to toe adorning the jackets, the skirts, and the ankle boots.

In terms of colors, the Rodarte x & Other Stories collection features mainly black (in faux leather and cotton), bold creamy white, rusty orange and burgundy shades, interrupted from time to time by beige, dark and light brown patches of faux fur and leather/suede appliqués. The line-up, although being not officially available yet, has already charmed many celebrities (among them being Chloe Sevigny, who quickly became the collection’s number one fan), and will very likely go sold out as soon as it hits the stores.
