ROF (Republic of Foreigner) debuts its A/W 2012-13 Collection titled  “Re-­‐belle.” This new collection is an ongoing juxtaposition of masculinity and femininity in the urban world.

The designers play with blacks, greys, turquoise and splashes of pinks, purples and muted greens ro compose garments that echo connections between modern views of military subcultures in fashion, such as rivetheads, industrial goths and modern hipsters who mix military aesthetics with a melting pot of styles, tastes and attitude, all in the name of creativity, unique style and of course rebellion.

The result is a refreshingly strong yet feminine collection with this season’s geometrics coming in the form of circular and leafy chiffon and ankara motifs and stand out pieces including delicate chiffon, jerset and leather cut-out blouses and dresses, prominent Mao collars, slim fitting cotton capris and draped dresses, skirts and jumpsuits.

About the collection:

The Re-­‐Belle Collection is a dynamic display of  feminised militarism. In the universal concept of beautiful ‘generational struggles’ often seen in history and pop culture, while real military uniforms often enforce hierarchy and conformity, subcultures often subvert this meaning into one of non-­‐conformity and individualism-­‐-­‐for this reason the name of the collection is ‘Rebelle’.

As a result, the designers took cues from cult films such as Rebel Without A Cause  (1955), Escape from New York (1981), Mad Max (1979), The Wild One (1953), and George Orwell’s novel, 1984 to feminise masculine and rebellious styles of life and fashion.

The idea was to ultimately create  elements of clothing that the ROF woman can comfortably, creatively and confidently put together anytime anywhere.
