ApparelMagic client Robert Rodriguez went lo-fi this season when he debuted his fall collection of rocker chick—or rocker-chic, more accurately—outfitting at New York Fashion Week.
With abstracted animal prints like a black-on-red leopard-spotted jumpsuit or a boxy sweater knitted in a zebra stripe pattern, these are clothes for the wild child turned polished career girl. Bridging these extremes sounds tough, but Rodriguez did it with heaps of style, like when he combined rockstar staples like leather pants with today’s must haves like asymmetrical knitwear and a quilted velvet coat in International Klein Blue.
Other styles were remixed, too. A lingerie-inspired camisole paired perfectly with mannish Glen Plaid tailored separates. The real star of the show though is Rodriguez’s silver trousers, which are pure Instagram bait whether they’re onstage or off.
