Rue La La Teams Up with Erin Robertson, Winner of ‘Project Runway’ Season 15

Boston-based brand and designer bring winning style to 16M members through curated boutique

Rue La La, an innovative e-commerce destination known for connecting world-class brands with the next-generation shopper, taps Erin Robertson, winner of Project Runway Season 15 to curate and model for a boutique comprised of her style selections.

The online boutique launches today, Monday, April 17, at 11AM. Products were handpicked by the designer and are bold in every sense of the word. Think: sequins, bright colors, and feminine details. Both women’s clothing and edgy accessories are featured in the event.

“It’s hard to say what I love most about Rue La La! Super-fun handbags, sassy heels and classy clothes…not to mention the custom set they painted just for me,” said Erin Robertson, Designer.

Rue Now™ (Rue La La’s editorial site) conversed with the designer on all things “Project Runway,” sustainable fashion, and her next big thing. The interview goes live in tandem with her boutique.

“Erin is cool – plain and simple! From the makeup choices to fashion selects to set creation, each step of the collaboration was vibrant and lively,” said John Camilleri, Executive Creative Director, Rue La La.

The brand’s in-house studio creative team produced a hand-painted banana-themed backdrop for the shots. The bubbly and playful design mimicked her personality and approach to the shoot. “She exudes confidence – which is everything our brand embodies. Perfect fit!” said Camilleri.

The boutique will be open on RueLaLa.com until April 19 at 11AM.

Fashion Week Paris

Louis Vuitton

Spring-Summer 2017

The collection of Creative Director, Nicolas Ghesquière, attracted numerous famous guests to come to Place Vendôme in the heart of the city. It was not by chance that this location was chosen since the new Maison Louis Vuitton will be constructed there; very close to the first boutique the company founder himself opened 150 years ago.

Ghesquière himself describes the collection as a modern interpretation of the Parisian Chic, however different than one might expect: With black leather, jagged seams, jazzy makeup, oversized shoulder pads und slim waist belts, some 80s vibes resonate with the drafts. The retro silhouettes are combined with metallic dresses and asymmetric styles. Ghesquière, who is an outspoken science-fiction fan, hence creates something that could be described as a retro-futuristic fashion. Nevertheless, the combinations appear soft, mature and chic.
