Another Story

I'm usually not one to buy into the hype whenever a luxury label collaborates with a high street brand.  My main issue with the concept is, that it often means paying higher prices for the same old quality. Because no, a label does not turn a polyester blend sweater in a luxury item…

But Rodarte's capsule collection for & Other Stories is another story (I couldn't resist).  I'm a big fan of & Other Stories to begin with,  especially their bags and shoes can easily compete with more high end pieces when it comes to design and quality. So I actually wouldn't mind paying a little more for a piece from the Rodarte collaboration (and in this case it really is a little, because the  prices hardly stray from those of the brand's regular collection):

The goal was to create a collection that represents the textures of a California lifestyle and would easily transition from day to night, and the result is a perfect blend of 70s glam and 90s cool girl style (think Weetzie Bat after a makeover for a Vogue cover shoot). It's going to be so hard to decide what to get! (That blue suede jacket, is high up on the list though.)

Check out a preview of the collection on & Other Stories,
and shop it online and in select stores tomorrow.

Peace, Love, and  Lobsters
