Carin Rodebjer has been living in New York City for many years now and judging by her Pre-Fall 2019 Collection, this has made an impact on her design aesthetic. This season, the Swedish designer offers two different yet cohesive wardrobes that are attuned to opposite New York lifestyles. The first is a more urban Manhattan-based woman, whose sartorial goal is to combine chicness with comfort. And the second is a carefree bohemian, who possibly has a house in The Hamptons, who prefers a bit of floatiness and some prints. With this line, Rodebjer insists that this woman can be one and the same. On weekdays, she’s wearing softly-tailored camel-hued coatdresses and drawstring tunics (a bit of her bohemian spirit spilling onto her cosmopolitan lifestyle) for work. When she’s feeling a bit friskier, she might sport an emerald green pantsuit that consists of a kimono-like jacket and fit-to-flare trousers. But during the weekends, this woman is off to the beach in floral bursts of cobalt, tangerine, and cinnamon yellow. She’s freer here, therefore her wardrobe must be too. It takes a great eye in design to come up with such consistency and Rodebjer certainly proved she has that!
