Rodarte has partnered with Universal Standard on a limited-edition capsule line.

California-based sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy, who are known for their signature romantic yet edgy aesthetic, are no strangers to collaboration, having worked with brands such as Gap, Target, and Coach in the past.

Now, the duo has teamed with the designers at inclusive fashion label Universal Standard on a ready-to-wear collection, with pieces available in U.S. sizes 00-40.

“We are excited to partner with Universal Standard to create this amazing collection. We are passionate about working with women that inspire us creatively and we love every style in this collection,” said Kate in a statement, while Laura added: “We have been fans of Universal Standard from the beginning. It’s been a dream to bring our designs to life and to collaborate with the team on this capsule. We are so excited to see how the pieces will be styled and experienced by all the amazing women that wear them.”

The range includes a jumpsuit, a dress with frill detail on the hem, and top with dramatic neck detailing.

Pieces are available in a colour palette of black, white, red, and rose, with Polina Veksler, Universal Standard co-founder and chief executive officer, pleased with the way the garments bridge the gap between high fashion and elevated essentials.

“We believe size should be an irrelevant consideration for women when making fashion choices,” she shared. “Through this collaboration we are taking a step toward giving more women access to designer clothing and we are thrilled to be further expanding our mission by collaborating with a high fashion brand.”

The Rodarte x Universal Standard collection retails for $150-$240 (£115-£184) and is available to buy from Universal Standard’s website and at the company’s New York boutique.
