Shopping for a dress or pair of shoes straight off the runway is nothing out of the ordinary. But, doing so two days after the show is almost unheard of. Even if you pre-ordered a few favorite looks from go-to retailer Moda Operandi right this minute, the estimated delivery date would still be a good six months away. And, we all know we hate waiting that long. That's where Rodarte stepped in and threw us a curve ball.
For spring '15, designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy collaborated with Oliver Peoples on a very limited-edition line of sunglasses, which is available to shop (like, actually shop) right now. Instead of next April or May, the same cat-eye frames we peeped at Tuesday's catwalk debut are hitting the eyewear brand’s New York and Los Angeles boutiques today.
But, there's a catch: There are only 100 pieces (we weren't kidding when we said limited-edition), and they'll cost you a cool $425. So, if you're hoping to snag a pair (they come in five colorways), we suggest you flock to the nearest Oliver Peoples location — and, if you don't live near one, dial 'em up, stat. (Here's their store locator, FYI.)
