With his collection still in its infancy — fall marks R/R Studio’s fourth season — Robert Rodriguez said his primary focus is to develop the label’s relaxed, feminine aesthetic with a clear point of view. He did note one specific reference for the season: the 1978 thriller “Eyes of Laura Mars,” which stars Faye Dunaway as the glamorous fashion photographer, Laura. “Faye was always so elegant, effortless and chic,” he said.
Rodriguez’s offering for fall was all of those things, too, and chock-full of easy clothes women will want to wear. The season’s ubiquitous masculine/feminine tension ran throughout the looks — the former including cool corduroy gauchos and plaid wool outerwear; the latter seen in a series of micro floral-printed silk dresses and embroidered gypsy blouses. Fall also marked the introduction of luxurious kangaroo and raccoon furs accenting a pair of oversize Army parkas.
