Brightening up all of our Tuesdays, Universal Standard and Rodarte just debuted a surprise collaboration that's both size-inclusive and affordable. The drop marks the first time Universal Standard has partnered with a luxury fashion brand, as well as Rodarte's first accessibly-priced collection since its Target collaboration in 2009.
Available in sizes 00 through to 40, Rodarte x Universal Standard offers up the signature romance of Kate and Laura Mulleavy's brand at the inclusive size range that Universal Standard has become known and celebrated for. The capsule collection's pieces all range from $150 - $240 in price, compared to Rodarte's dresses which typically retail for upwards of $4,000.
“It shouldn’t be a far-fetched possibility for women of all sizes to have access to contemporary, ready-to-wear fashion, and experience supreme quality and design when buying clothing,” Alexandra Waldman, co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of Universal Standard, said in a statement from the brand. “I’ve always admired Kate and Laura’s unique eye and talent for creating ethereal and beautiful pieces. Rodarte’s design aesthetic is truly outstanding, and we’re thrilled to join forces for this incredible collaboration and offer elevated pieces that we can all experience and share.”
From a ruffled red jumpsuit to the perfect day-to-night blouse and sweetheart-neckline dresses, the limited-edition collab comes just in time to usher your wardrobe into spring.
Launching today, Rodarte and Universal Standard's capsule collection is available to shop online at universalstandard.com and at Universal Standard’s flagship store in SoHo (located at 65 Greene St).
