While we await official word on & Other Stories's first West Coast store, this next news nugget gives us hope that it's totally happening. H&M's high-end sister label is teaming with none other than luxe local label Rodarte for a capsule collection, set to land next spring online and in-stores—which would be quite the warm welcome for an LA boutique, no?
As Pret-a-Reporter notes, the range will be priced from $29 to $325 and will include clothing, accessories, and footwear. In a statement, the Swedish fast fashion brand reveals that it's "adding a new LA-infused perspective to our selection." Given that & Other Stories previously declared that "it would be a dream to open a store on the West Coast," this gives us high hopes for an eventual City of Angels outpost.
Catch a sneak peek of the collab's vibes above, which sort of mirrors designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy's Art Deco-esque spring 2016 line; wonder which of the cinematic sisters's rad pals will star in the & Other Stories campaign?
