Fall 2013 Ready-to-Wear
March 11, 2013 New York
"Best Friends" is the theme of Rachel Antonoff's Fall collection, and the designer brought in her real-life BFF, Lena Dunham, to make its corresponding video. The result: a nature-documentary-style short film that follows two partners in crime who could've walked off the set of a Girls episode guest-directed by Wes Anderson. The video aptly showcases the quirky-cool clothes, which also riff on the idea of besties via thoughtful details like friendship-bracelet trimming and the gold half-heart charms adorning the collar of an otherwise straightforward cap-sleeve shift. Other highlights include a shirt-and-pleated-skirt set in a slightly retro tie print, as well as matching oxford shoes from Antonoff's ongoing collaboration with Bass. A duo of novelty sweatshirts that read "Ravenswood" and "El Royale" are a shout-out to two historic luxury apartment buildings in Los Angeles that Antonoff and co. are fascinated with and divided over. They will make Antonoff fans feel like they're in on the inside joke.
