Behind the Brand: Robert Rodriguez Loves Outerwear, Proportions and Volume

Robert Rodriguez’s namesake label centers on clean lines, decadent fabrics and classically tailored silhouettes. Current, never trendy, understated—but completely contemporary—the Robert Rodriguez woman is above all always true to herself.

The creative director muses on his fall collection, and his undeniable love of outerwear and volume in our interview.

Street Report: Plaid Check at DKNY

Black-and-white plaid checks are making waves on the trend forecast, and this retro modern number is cute and cool all at once. I love the unexpected layering of this look, too. Mixing shearling and sporty mesh is unique and interesting. Throw on some amazing thick-soled heels and a beautiful Valentino bag, and you’re ready to hit the shows!

Street Report: Joanna Coles

Joanna tried to sneak out of Lincoln Center unnoticed, but I managed to catch up with her, and she was gracious as always–we also saw her last fall.

Joanna was recently appointed as the new Editor-in-Chief of Cosmopolitan Magazine and still makes time for her Project Runway appearances. I love her unfussy, city-chic sheath–and her smile!

High-Volume Pieces: 4 Ways to Wear

A mix of amped-up shapes and intense color makes for a high-fidelity spring. Here’s how we turn up the volume.

#1. Shock value. The brilliance of these ultra wide-leg pants makes a perfectly unpredictable pairing with the super-feminine blouse. Add sky-high heels to create a long, lean line.

#2. Top it off. Keep your top color choices interesting and let it take the lead by keeping the bottom sleek and fitted. We’ve used pieces with a subtle sheen to give a wear-anywhere look a little dressed-up love.

#3. Balancing act. The billowy, bright maxi skirt can be toned down with the help of a form-loving sweater and barely-there flats. It’s all about yin and yang.

#4. Go full blast. All-over volume looks chic and classic with neutral hues in a similar palette and a tailored waist. Update this elegant silhouette with a simple but bold accessory.

Warmer Days to Come

Our post-holiday Seattle Flagship window displays are all about sunny getaways and transitional dressing into spring. We’ve run the gamut from on-trend, office-appropriate outfits to super-savvy cocktail dressing and beachwear.

This nautical number is a perfect example of what’s on deck for spring—a combo of bright colors and big graphic prints and patterns, all elevated by a pair of platform sandals (you can never go wrong with Dior).

As days get warmer (lucky you if they already are), swap out that statement-making kate spade mini trench for a lightweight and colorful blazer or cardigan.
