Here’s another reason to care less that summer is coming to an end. Behold, the Rodarte for Opening Ceremony Fall 11 lookbook. (This is everything for ladies and yes I saved you the trouble from liking the Rodarte page on facebook to access the photos).
Now, I definitely liked the Spring 11 Rodarte for Opening Ceremony collection. But THIS. This just takes it to another level. I mentioned with the first collab that it would help push the commercial viability of Rodarte forward and I think the Fall 11 collection does that even more so. It feels like a perfect combination of Rodarte’s forward vision (look at those prints!) as well as salable merchandise (car-wash slit maxi skirt) without going the route of Rodarte for Target, which the brand already conquered in Fall 09. As a collection I also feel like this is more cohesive with just the right amount of items and references (love the all-black). You could pre-order some of the Fall collection on Opening Ceremony’s website now.. and (BONUS!) still score some great pieces from the Spring 11 collection on sale.
