Design duo Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte are back for their second capsule collection at Opening Ceremony. The capacious compilation (over 100 pieces) comprises of apparel (accessories included) for both women and men and ranges from $110 to $2730. Available in all Opening Ceremony stores- New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo and online- find tattoo inspired tights, ethereal 70s florals and printed swing dresses along with a range of retro eyewear.
In a palette of subdued sepia tones, dungaree like dresses are constructed from leather while American football laces run down the sides of mauve shorts, leather jackets and draped dresses. Wallpaper and tapestry like prints adorn caped dresses (belted at the waist) in bold burgundy and gold. Vintage high waisted dusky floral bikini bottoms are paired with haltered tops, knotted at the middle, while bathing suits are boned with hook-and-eye fastenings. Accessories wise- wide brimmed floppy hats, cutaway buttoned leggings in storm-cloud mauve and grey accompany, all topped off with rectangular "lost boy" sunglasses in various colours of snakeskin and floral cloths.
Edgy indie male models wear chunky cable-knit cardigans (some distressed with drop-stitching) with floral button down shirts. Light knitwear comes in the form of inside out linen sweaters with two colour combinations of intarsia dual colours. Black and brown lambskin leather jackets with envelope pockets- ribbed at the collar, cuffs and bottom hem- are worn over knits while buttery crinkled lambskin leather forms a round necked tee with omni sleeves. For formal, twill pin-tuck pants and linen trousers in black and brown are paired with washed twill suit jackets with suede sleeves.
