A fantasy shopping list for SS13 would be, quite frankly, inaccurate if it didn't include an oversized, fringed biker jacket worthy of Steve McQueen. The kind which you could throw on over a wrap mini skirt and look like a very fashionable version of a woman sauntering out of a mid-America motel to meet her rough and ready lover. These are not the tight, thin, barely roadworthy leather jackets of yesteryear (think Victoria Beckham circa the birth of Brooklyn), but substantial garments which engulf, protect, only get better with age and would make a Hell's Angel proud.
|Rodarte turn teenage boy fantasies like Warhammer to fashion girl dreams.|
M'oda Operandi is here to help us gobble, with their Rodarte trunk show which is going on until Monday. The 'pretailer'- I love that term-has 13 looks from September's show which we can buy from right now, with delivery as early as March. You may want to splash your entire SS13 piggy bank now with 10,531 euros on a spectacular embroidered gown or 4,361euros on one of those epic fringed bikers. For the slightly more restrained amongst us, there are beautifully printed tops for 957euros. Basically, we can get our guaranteed fashion thrills early. This must be how it feels to get first dibs on a new World of Warcraft extension game.
