French Style Meets California Cool In RVCA And Camille Rowe’s Fall Collab
The new collection’s retro-inspired vibes are the ultimate off-duty wardrobe.
Camille Rowe is the epitome of ‘French girl cool.’ For years, the model has been renowned for her effortless style pairings — jeans with a white tee and polished pair of loafers, the perfectly tailored suit with pointed-toe heels, a mini dress with an oversized blazer and sneakers. It’s Paris meets Los Angeles, which is fitting, considering her new collab with RVCA.
Rowe is bringing her refined but relaxed sensibility to her debut collection with the California label. A longtime friend of RVCA founder PM Tenore, Rowe is no stranger to the contemporary art world and underground skate and surf communities that RVCA reflects. The RVCA x Camille Rowe line blends those two worlds, offering tons of retro-inspired French fashion staples, like a cool corduroy suit alongside a slew of graphic T-shirts. Easy to wear and even easier to style, the below pieces will have you creating the ultimate off-duty look — and emulating Rowe’s signature aesthetic — anywhere in the world.
Plus, to celebrate the launch, RVCA is giving away $1,000 worth of French-inspired goods — including a $500 RVCA shopping spree, $250 to P.F. Candle Co., $150 to Gorjana jewelry, and more. Enter to win here (entry closes Sept. 17, 2021). Bonne chance!
Skip the stuffy black suit in favor of a more in-your-face option. This single-breasted blazer and coordinating high-waisted pants feature loud green and white stripes, plus tiny floral detailing. Tone down the next-level print by following Rowe’s lead: Style the suit with a white cotton tee and your everyday boots for the right balance of ‘put-in-effort,’ while still keeping it casual.
No piece of clothing is more effortless than a sleek slip dress. From the front, the Phoebe looks classic with its square neckline and spaghetti straps — from the back, however, it’s a true statement-maker. The low-cut and lace-up detailing make this dress ideal for hot summer evenings. Pair with strappy black sandals, and you’ll have the easiest outfit you ever styled.
In a cool shade of navy, this shirt jacket is neutral enough to wear in place of your classic jean jacket, but the soft corduroy material and slightly oversized fit make it a more on-trend option. For a matching set that feels tres Parisienne in all the best ways, pair it with the high-waisted Camille shorts, a fun graphic tee, and knee-high leather boots.
Make a statement with a pair of high-waisted fitted flares covered in a graphic print. With something so bold on the bottom, you might think going neutral up top is a must. Rowe says to do the opposite. A contrasting colorful T-shirt (like a mustard yellow) plays up the retro vibes.
This summer, these jean shorts will be your new best friend. Versatile enough to wear out but comfortable enough to lounge around in, these bright indigo bottoms are the ideal foundation for any pairing: an oversized tee, a ribbed tank, or a romantic ’60s-era blouse. The choice is yours.
It’s a jacket. It’s a top. Really, the Paradis Coat is whatever you want it to be. Wear the longline corduroy piece as a makeshift suit with the matching rust-colored bottoms and sneakers for a vintage-inspired look. For something even edgier, let it act as a blouse and pair with the collection’s hot pants and knee-high boots.
The best maxi dresses are ones that can be worn for any occasion. Dress up this floral-printed crepe number with a low pair of heels for a night out, style with white sneakers for a Saturday afternoon hang, or, thanks to a removable nude slip, try it as a fancy cover-up poolside.
