Loeffler Randall Fall 2013 Inspiration November 06 2013
We always love learning about what exactly inspired our favourite designers each season, and Loeffler Randall is definitely one of our favourites! Below, find out what inspired Jessie Randall this fall.
The iconic image of Rosie The Riveter and the qualities that her persona embodies - a strong, capable and beautiful woman in the modern work force - inspired the Fall 2013 collection. A revival of traditionally masculine, structured styles can be seen in the new creeper silhouettes, Beatriz and Calla. The concept of industrial welding is captured in several iterations, from leather dot appliques to leather covered studs and metal-flecked suede. The polka dots of Rosie's scarf make an appearance in haircalf prints seen on the Alba demi platform pump and Lana platform wedge. The updates in raw indigo fabric seen on the Rider bag and Octavia high top sneakers reference Rosie's denim work-wear. Feminine elements find their way into the assortment in delicate yet all-purpose flats like the new soft rounded Karlotta ballet flat and the classic Quinnie pointed toe flat. Notable new handbags include the Work tote, which meets everyday utilitarian needs, and the structured Minaudière, a small hard body clutch with concealable metal chain, which can truly go from day to night.
Jessie's favourite new Fall styles:
"I really like the new Frankie moto boot. It is such an easy style to wear with just about everything. Love it with dresses and skirts as well as jeans. The Octavia high top sneakers are also a favorite, I bought them in too many colors!"
"The Work tote in maroon haircalf is really special. I like a big capacity bag for the workday. It fits everything but is still a manageable size. The Rider bag is the core of our handbag collection. I love this bag - it speaks to the kind of lifestyle that a lot of my friends and I lead. We updated the Rider bag this season in new raw materials, my favorite is a woven indigo fabric that has an elevated denim vibe."
