Kate and Laura Mulleavy celebrated the collection with co-host Dakota Fanning at an intimate dinner in Los Angeles last night to unveil what is to come in a few days. Here is your sneak peek to what you can find in the collection.
Last night, Kate & Laura Mulleavy, Dakota Fanning, Katy Perry, Jemima Kirke, Bella Heathcote, Zoey Deutch, Rowan Blanchard, Riley Keough, Odeya Rush, Langley Fox, Miranda July, Gia Coppola, Lily Stewart, Kim Gordon, Lisa Love, Nathalie Love, Annie Clark, Jenny Lewis, Catherine Opie and Suvi Koponen were among the guests who attended a special dinner which celebrated the collaboration between & Other Stories and Rodarte. The setting for the dinner was the private home of Elliott Hundley and Alphaeus Taylor.
“Los Angeles was a strong source of inspiration behind the collection, so it was a natural fit to celebrate the & Other Stories launch here in LA. We were so excited to celebrate at a dinner with inspiring and talented friends.”Kate and Laura Mulleavy
“We wanted to create a collection that represents the textures of a California lifestyle. The clothes should easily transition from day to-night and transform to one’s personal style and individuality. For us, it was important to create go-to staples for one’s wardrobe: a great jacket, dress, skirt, blouse, sweater, shoes and a set of jewellery that are completely versatile,” said Kate and Laura Mulleavy.
With this collection, Rodarte wanted to use colors and surfaces that create three-dimensionality. Subtle contrasts allowed for the designs to have intricate details and modern, clean lines. They also explored playing with textures such as crushed velvet, suede, mohair, lurex knit, mixed metal and crystal application. Small glimpses of metallic edges create a refraction of light that draws the eye.
Rodarte is known for its artistic mixture of high couture, modern femininity, and California influences, created by Kate and Laura Mulleavy. Their signature aesthetics come together in this co-lab collection, revealing unexpected contrasts and carefully chosen qualities – all available in selected stores and on stories.com March 17, 2016.
