The Rodebjer collection at W29 showroom, featuring two of my favorite looks. Also note the awesome bags to the left. I want to order the briefcase style one, but in the black and grey plaid.
Rodebjer might have shown their Fall 2009 collection this Monday at Stockholm Fashion Week (which is wrapping up today), but we got to have a little sneak preview last week at W29 showroom. The collection was inspired by British socialite Nancy Cunard, who served as the muse for Man Ray and Ezra Pound, and who lead an inspired life marked by activism for African American civil rights, and extensive travel. The resulting collection was full of British riding clothes and jackets, soft mohair knitted wooly plaids, long silk dresses paired with sneakers, lush velvet dresses with a sparkling of black paillettes, and flashes of gold netting.
A gorgeous full length black and grey plaid coat.
The plaid mohair jacket is worn belted and with the sleeves rolled up, but I would just wear it as a short jacket. It's super warm and fuzzy.
This is one of my favorite looks, a velvet jumpsuit with a stripe of black paillettes, worn under a long coat and with a mohair hood. It's very Aldous Huxley doing hallucinogens and Wicca in the woods.
Although it looks like a dress in this picture, this piece is actually a romper with jodhpur style full hips. I love the styling of it, matched with a flimsy vest, plaid bag, and Alice Dellal style hair, and against my better instincts, I am dying to take this look for a spin...
