For fall 2014, Rowley is taking us to that happy place once again. Thigh-high leather slouch boots and bright pumps act as the foundation for a wide range of wares. But, if I had to describe the line collectively, I might say something like, “Ultra-mod chick boards a spaceship, and brings along her Lite Brite.”
Yes, these designs are every bit as fun as you might imagine. Neoprene, one of Rowley’s go-to fabrics, is fashioned into tunics and flare-leg jumpsuits, and then enhanced with contrasting stripes. Drop-waist dresses get a flirty touch with rows of button embellishments and flouncy hemlines. And, a rainbow motif is echoed throughout the entire range.
Aside from the vibrant color palette, there’s a rainbow graphic that can be found on a number of silk separates. Plus, chunky, two-tone belt bracelets complement bunches of teardrop-shaped leaves that are scattered about on skirts, tanks, and the side panels of pockets. Oh, and there are short, fur-trimmed scarves that add a finishing touch to the ensembles. However, there are plenty of pieces (like a psychedelic mini festooned with a mishmash of metal objects) that really don’t need a single accoutrement.
