I’ve been downsizing my wardrobe lately, selling some of my ‘one off’ dresses and using the money to invest in some effortlessly elegant basics to refresh my style. One new find in my quest-for-the-perfect-basics was Rodebjer. Based in Stockholm and NYC, designer Carin Rodebjer aims to offer high quality fashion with a relaxed, accessible vibe.
“Born in Sweden, Rodebjer moved to New York to study at FIT in 1999. When her handmade designs were picked up by local boutiques, she dropped her studies to launch a seasonal collection. Now she splits her time between New York and Sweden, cherry-picking inspiration from both sides of the Atlantic.
In Sweden, Rodebjer operates a flagship boutique in Stockholm and presents a runway collection during Stockholm Fashion Week. The designer has repeatedly taken home the country’s most notable fashion awards, including Guldknappen by Damernas Värld and Swedish Elle’s Design of the Year (three times). Stateside, the collection is found at leading specialty boutiques including Tenoversix and Milk in LA; as well as Pixie Market, Honey in the Rough and La Nouvelles in New York.” – SOMA
For Fall 2014, Rodebjer focusses again on the strength of the silhouette with a certain elegance that is perfect for the modern woman. It’s a great mix of Scandi-cool and New York-chic. My current favourites are the Vivre Basket Weave Black Coat - a perfect ankle length style with flowing front folds, and the Art Shirt Dress with endless wearing possibilities.
