It’s traditional men’s utility wear reimagined for women. At their recent off-schedule Pre-Fall 2017 show it was the suits that have the potential to replace the jeans-tee uniform that scored. Tuning into the collaborative spirit in vogue, the brand is partnering with like-minded creatives and “wildly talented” friends to build a community that matches their domestic manufacturing ethos. All things throwing progressive light on American culture seem to get fashion’s seal of approval these days, and Lorod’s evolved all-American uniform has Opening Ceremony opting in.
