Take one cartoon icon. Add in a fashion rebel. What do you get? The coolest collaboration we've seen in a while.
Rodnik, the British clothing label-band hybrid headed up by Philip Colbert, is partnering with Peanuts on a line of everything from baseball hats to sequined gowns hitting stores this September. "Snoopy is such an iconic image, there's so much nostalgia there--so it's about updating him and giving him a twist," explains Colbert, adding, "Just giving it a spin so it connects with younger people."
It certainly is resonating with Rita Ora--the Brit, who has already been donning some Rodnik pieces while on tour, is according to Colbert getting some custom show pieces made as well. If you can't afford the sequined pieces (which start at a surprisingly reasonable $180), there will also be shirts going for $39, jersey dresses for $90, and handbags going for $80. "We're doing some really crazy sequined Snoopy dresses--really bonkers!" he notes.
You can see what he means right here--we've got the exclusive first look at the Rodnik x Peanuts lookbook. It seems that Charlie Brown is not the only good man around these days.
