This week, we welcomed RtA to via C. The brainchild of design duo Eli Azran and David Rimokh, RtA (Road to Awe) is an LA-based brand that has already caught the attention of industry notables and celebs like Kristen Stewart—who knows a thing or two about style. Over the course of a year, what started as a collection of bottoms has grown to include modern tops and jackets with an urban edge.
“For RtA, the pair eschewed special washes and trendy prints in favor of classic designs that won’t go out of style, from a distressed boyfriend set (our personal pick) to standard indigo skinnies.” —Harper’s Bazaar
“I’m loving the mixed-media denim and leather pieces that have a menswear type of vibe but still stay sleek and feminine to the shape.” —Glamour
“The designers have created cool jeans and leather pants with a rock’n’roll vibe that are so desirable, we have a feeling many a style star will be wearing the covetable duds come fashion week.” —Who What Wear

The elegant and timeless designs of Escada are now at Nordstrom! For over 35 years, this German-based brand has reinvented uncomplicated chic with rich color palettes and innovative fabrics that will take you from everyday to evening with ease. Daniel Wingate, Escada’s fashion director, reveals his inspiration behind the spring ’14 and resort collections.
“The main inspiration while designing the Escada spring/summer 2014 collection was a feeling taken from the Italian and French Rivieras,” says Daniel, who has been with the house of Escada since 2003. “For the resort collection this spirit then linked itself to a very soft and pretty color.”
Now available online and in selected stores: ELEVENPARIS. Known for its fusion of fashion, music and culture, this edgy Parisian brand partnered with Lenny Kravitz (and his finger ‘stache) for a fall 2014 collection and campaign that’s urban and young with a rock ‘n’ roll edge.
“I wanted really gorgeous, rich, saturated color inspired by a kind of seventies-meets-twenties hedonistic mood, a little blurred, a little sheen.” —Tom Ford
