The Rodarte & Other Stories collab is beyond!
We love a good collab here at Your Coffee Break, it’s an easy and more affordable way to snag the style of your favourite designers without having to take out a loan or sell your soul on eBay. One of the latest designer collaborations to have caught our fashion eye is the Rodarte x & Other Stories collection.
One of our firm favourites as it stands, we always head to & Other Stories for Scandinavian inspired statement pieces, that are fresh, contemporary and of course – affordable! We were pretty excited to hear that one of our favourite designer brands Rodarte has teamed up with our high street favourite.
Founded in 2005 by Kate and Laura Mulleavy, Rodarte is known for its eclectic mix of high couture, modern felinity teamed with Californian influences. So what does this collab bring us?
Unexpected contrasts and carefully chosen qualities are at the heart of this co-lab collection. Standout pieces, a mix of textures and embellishments feed into the collection to create a trend-led capsule wardrobe that combines these two exciting fashion players.
We’ve picked out some of our favourite pieces from the collection:
Ruffles are BIG news right now and we’ll certainly see this continue into the summer. Expect to see ruffles everywhere. This silk blend top is adorable and we love the sharp v neck contrasting with the super girly ruffles. It’s a winner in our books.
Mini skirts have been extremely popular of late, with many a suede mini skirt popping up on our Instagram feeds in line with the 70s trend that consumed most of last summer! It looks like this is a trend that will be sticking around, and we don’t mind that if it means we get to wear this little beauty.
Simplicity at its finest, we’ve all been looking at this dress with major heart eyes. With playful twists including a buttoned sweetheart neckline and halter back, this dress really does need a place in our wardrobes this summer. So versatile, we can imagine this styled up for a casual daytime look with slides or with a wedge for those summer evenings.
If you’re looking for a truly statement ‘wow’ piece from the collection then this is it. Covered in light catching sequins, this top has a vintage feel yet still remains contemporary in line with the rest of the collection. We love the tie waist detail which is not only flattering but adds a little something extra to this stunning piece.
We can just imagine these cute crushed velvet shorts teamed with the ruffled crop top for the ultimate chic and playful outfit!
