The multitude of designer and retail collaborations promise that the upcoming season is really going to be highly elegant and glamorous, and one of such collaborations, trying to make this concept a reality is the one between Rodarte and Opening Ceremony. So exciting and sophisticated, the latest Rodarte and Opening Ceremony collaboration is a real reflection of eclectic elegance and ethereal feeling. Drawing inspiration from the Scandinavian culture, Kate and Laura Mulleavy present feminine creations that lay a great stress on delicacy and princess-like allure. Impressive textures and prints, soft ruffles and sheer details are just some of the statement elements, you’ll find in the new Rodarte for Opening Ceremony fall 2011 lookbook.

The great accent on femininity and elegance is felt immediately, which is reflected on long and midi dresses. The styles featured in the collection range from conservative and vintage-inspired ones to modern and provocative designs, brought with the help of certain fabric choices and sheer ensembles. A great preference is given to silk prints, as well as lamb skin leather and cable-knits. If you appreciate the forgotten past, you’ll like the comeback of the printed pants and if you want to try some innovations, the head to toe printed outfits are right for you.
Another style statement is the well defined waist, whether it’s high-waisted pants or silhouette-flattering dresses. An important trend of fall 2010, ankle socks still keep to be fashionable, creating a practical vibe. On the other hand, a minimum approach to accessories is noticed at the very glance, keeping things simple and polished.

The Rodarte for Opening Ceremony fall 2011 lookbook also brings nice alternatives for men, making shopping pleasant for a couple. Elegant suits, dapper pants, stylish shirts and impressive footwear are some of the staples, suggested for fall 2011.
The entire collection will be available online and in stores, starting early October, so there is plenty of time to make your selection!
