Rodarte Arrives At Net-A-Porter For S/S 2011

                 

 

Net-A-Porter announces the launch of Rodarte Spring/Summer 2011 collection, the celebrated collection created by sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy. Who doesn’t love Rodarte? Since they hit the runway everyone has gone head over heals over their collections. Rodarte was started off by the sisters in their hometown of Pasadena, California in 2005. They wanted to tell a story and recreate emotions through clothes; hands down they’ve done it the best possible way with hand-made materials, textures and fabrics. “The sisters have perfected the combination of workmanship and eccentricity. They let their quirkiness come through in their designs, all the while playing up a dream-like element that really appeals to the romantic woman,” Buying Director of Net-A-Porter, Holli Rogers.
 
                  

 

                   

 

It’s a virtual art work, with bold wrap skirts, high-waisted trousers, and shoulder-less blouses. I thought the mixture of colors in the collection was absolutely phenomenal. Net-A-Porter has once again added an A-list designer to their team, I love it!

La Belle Epoque Jewels

                           
One thing that I really love to do is to write about new and upcoming designers and labels in the making that are going to be epic! La Belle Epoque Jewels is one of them; she’s a graduate gemologist that specializes in searching the worlds best unique embellishments and pieces. From the 1915 liberation the Art Deco, 1935 introducing the bright colors and geometric styles and the retro of the 40’s. Carrie Ryan the master behind La Belle Epoque is an Australian which moved all the way to Dubai to experience something new, “I love Australia and am incredibly patriotic but I wanted to experience more, put myself out of my comfort zone, try something new and challenging, live in completely different culture and hopefully learn a new language (ashamedly I’m still working on that). It all happened quite quickly one day I said I’m going to Dubai and next thing I know I’m here.” Carrie to YOU magazine.
 

 

                                    
The name, Le Belle Epoque, or The Beautiful Era came from the 1985 to 1914 which was known for its prosperity and luxurious lifestyle era. The jewelry was the most elegant and very delicate. “For me this was the most poignant name choice – while I deal in jewels from all periods, I try to acquire those of which are the most elegant or representative of the time in which they were created,” explained Carrie.
 
Carrie can do private viewings of her jewelry for individuals and small groups when requested. I really adored the pieces, I mean who wouldn’t want a piece of jewelry.
