Pretty in Prints

Radenroro Spring/ Summer 2011 Diamond Print
Radenroro Spring/ Summer 2011 Diamond Print
We were triple excited about the Raderonro spring/ summer 2011 collection because it’s the first time we used our own custom print! (I, myself designed it from scratch! :) ). I’m super pleased with how it came out. I had so much fun creating it and gave so much love to it. :)
This abstract diamond print is sort of graphicy, playful, and bold  but it still looks and feels soft, feminine, and sophisticated at the same time  which wasn’t very easy to achieve when I was working on it. I chose diamonds because-I know it sounds a bit cliché -”Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend”. :) It’s pretty simple, but simplicity is often beautiful and it gives the impression of classic and chic. I created this diamond print because I feel like there is not a lot of fun, interesting, and chic prints out there, and I would love to see girls wearing something more non-cookie cutter outfits. Playing it safe is not exciting and sooo boring. I think this diamond print would give a girl her strong touch of personal style. Every girl has to have a great printed dress that is special and she loves in her wardrobe. Any girl would look pretty in prints… pretty with an edge! ;)
So, this diamond print comes in two color combos, I call them sage and off-white. It’s printed on 100% imported silk (beautiful super soft charmeuse and crepe de chine). It has subtle “RADENRORO” wordings here and there (you can barely see them unless you look for them).
I think Radenroro diamond printed dresses are show-stoppers, and when a girl puts on a Radenroro diamond printed dresses, she will be the center of attention (all in the good way of course :) )
Below I made a collage of runway looks from Spring/ Summer 2011 Fashion Week (New York, London, Milan, and Paris). I see plenty of fabulous interesting and fun prints on the runways. These are looks from Jonathan Saunders, Wunderkind, Miu Miu, Moschino, Z Spoke, Chanel, Sonia Rykiel, Marni, Versace, House of Holland, Aquilano Rimondi, and Chris Benz.

“Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend”

from GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES (1953)

words by Jule Styne and music by Leo Robin

 

The French are glad to die for love.
They delight in fighting duels.
But I prefer a man who lives
And gives expensive jewels.A kiss on the hand
May be quite continental,
But diamonds are a girl’s best friend.

A kiss may be grand
But it won’t pay the rental
On your humble flat
Or help you at the automat.

Men grow cold
As girls grow old,
And we all lose our charms in the end.

But square-cut or pear-shaped,
These rocks don’t loose their shape.
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.

Tiffany’s!
Cartier!
Black Starr!
Frost Gorham!
Talk to me Harry Winston.
Tell me all about it!

There may come a time
When a lass needs a lawyer,
But diamonds are a girl’s best friend.

There may come a time
When a hard-boiled employer
Thinks you’re awful nice,
But get that ice or else no dice.

He’s your guy
When stocks are high,
But beware when they start to descend.

It’s then that those louses
Go back to their spouses.
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.

I’ve heard of affairs
That are strictly platonic,
But diamonds are a girl’s best friend.

And I think affairs
That you must keep liaisonic
Are better bets
If little pets get big baguettes.

Time rolls on,
And youth is gone,
And you can’t straighten up when you bend.

But stiff back
Or stiff knees,
You stand straight at Tiffany’s.

Diamonds!  Diamonds!
I don’t mean rhinestones!
But diamonds are a girl’s best friend.

Great Lines Think Alike

The Asmara dress was designed by me and inspired by aprons. The idea was to create a lady-like girly dress but with Radenroro aesthetic which is chic, polished, and sophisticated. It’s made of 100% silk crepe and chiffon.

Note: This dress was one of the pieces from our All On The Line episode. The reason why  the dress looked like it was “too ruffly” is because it had just come out of the sewing machine and hadn’t been properly pressed due to time constraints. The dress is now perfect! It’s very chic and special! :) The Asmara apron dress is now available at Nordstrom at The Grove in LA and Nordstrom flagship in Seattle.

Fringeship

Radenroro fringe dress and pants

Radenroro fringe dress and pants

I’m obsessed with fringes! I got the idea of these fringe pants from my vintage fringe cowboy boots. I got so many compliments on those boots. I love the silhouette of my body when I wear those boots. The fringes really flatter my legs. I LOVE!! :)

These fringes give out the vibe of a cool girl look! They help you to create your personal style. They are perfect accents to your outfit.  Well, these Radenroro fringe pants actually a refined form of those vintage cowboy boots of mine. These pants take a western look to another level… the level of chicness :) , they can be worn with platform booties, skinny strappy heels, or the on-trend chunky wooden clogs.

Another fringey piece that I designed is this Radenroro dress with a fringed hip scarf. It’s so unique, and once again it’s such a cool girl look and it has personal style written all over it! The wearer would definitely stand out in the crowd! The deep V neckline with skinny suit lapels gives a touch of sexiness. It’s so fashion conscious but yet it’s effortless, light and easy. 

Some of many the designers who did fringe for their Spring 2011 collections are Roberto Cavalli, Etro, Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Hermès, and Twenty8Twelve. (Images are courtesy of NYMAG.COM)

Let’s start a fringeship next spring! ;) xx

Tropicalista

RADENRORO Tropical Prints

RADENRORO Tropical Prints

The idea first came from the classic Hawaiian shirt, so it’s my take on Hawaiian shirts and making it modern and chic. Also, it can be worn any day of the week, not just Friday ;) . It’s a transformation of tackiness to total chicness :D .
I used this custom tropical palm leaf printed silk fabric to make adorable pieces like circle gauchos,  a hooded anorak, a little pleated mini dress, a batwing open back dress, a cute tank top, and a sarong tube dress.
Tropical themes were seen at a number of spring/ summer 2011 shows such as Prada, Stella McCartney, Wunderkind, House of Holland, Dior, Armani, and Jean-Paul Gaultier. I tink these tropical prints (like banana, palm leaf, citrus fruit, etc-see the collage below) are so pretty but has an edge. It’s daring and fashion-forward! It’s time to try something different next summer! Pump-up your personal style with tropical prints! Be a tropicalista! ;)
