Masters of collaborations Opening Ceremony have yet another designer project on their hands, this time working with the Mulleavy sisters, the two ladies behind Rodarte. As of 11am today, when the doors of OC's Howard Street location open, shoppers will have the first chance to grab the collection, created this time for girls and guys. We know, we know, it's 19 degrees out—but after checking out the looks online, you might be tempted to put on another pair of socks and just go for it.
WWD describes the looks as being "more whimsical and temperate of design" and "less aggressive, dark and fantastical," which we're reading to mean "recognizably Rodarte, but a little more wearable." The collection, which also will launch at 40 stores across the globe (including Barneys NY, Holt Renfrew, in Canada and DNA in Saudi Arabia) comes at a much lower price point than the complete Rodarte range, starting at $250 for a top and going up to $2,200 for women and $750 for men.
