NEWS IN Opening Ceremony
I love a basic sweater and I always think that if there is a graphic print or logo or text, it must have a meaning. It has to say something, should it be understood only by the discerning few. With this sweater, Rodarte brings back the charming series of super-soft Radarte tees and sweatshirts in exclusivity for Opening Ceremony. The line is the east-coast version of American Apparel : playful, cozy basics that say “I know how to dress”.
Bantu Swimwear collection SS2011:
Bantu, funny name isn’t it? Sounds African, well it is! Plus, the lookbook shooting is quite cool… Definitely, your BBF (Beach Best Friend) for this summer !!

Once again, we found an amazing collaboration not to be missed… This time, it is an exclusive, two-style collaboration between the historical parisian house Repetto and the successful American flagship Opening Ceremony.
The two houses successfully created a cowboy yet cultivé version of this best-seller ballerina. The shape remains a classic Repetto flat though. Inspired by a mythical pair of leopard Repetto flats, it seems that they both needed to revive it, they created the Pony Ballerina, an iconic ballet flat in 3 very oc varieties of animal-print pony hair (leopard, zebra and giraffe).

Year after year, the famous American brand, Opening Ceremony, realizes new collaborations with talented French designers. This time, they pick an influential house whose name has become synonymous with nostalgia, invention, and play: Agnès b.!
I am not usually a big fan of the French designer’s lines. Yet, the hip New-Yorker flagship touch brings something special to the fruit of that collaboration. Indeed, this black polkadot cardigan will add a psychedelic rock touch to your whole silhouette. Hurry up if you want to get one…
