This So-Fly Designer Wants To Help You Rock Out

0 comments



We expect just two things when it comes to the perfect garment: comfort and style. Groundbreaking, we know. But, sometimes, it is truly difficult to find pieces that marry both of these concepts well. Thankfully, we have designers like Raquel Allegra, who are at the forefront of this relaxed-cool movement.

For spring, Allegra drew inspiration from various destinations — including India, where she recently took a spiritual journey — to develop a line of wearable pieces you’ll want to live in all season long. Instead of showcasing the collection through photos, though, Allegra whipped up a short film (above), soundtracked by Eagles hits and featuring one very vivacious model, who is able to dip, shimmy, leap, and straight-up rock out in Allegra's rad wares. All in all, it's a true testament to the garments' easy-going air.

As Allegra notes, "[Music and fashion and spirit are] all connected in this video. How does a woman express herself when she’s excited by music and by clothing? This is the magic that happened, and we caught it on film."

So, while you get carried away in the film, we challenge you to get just as lost in the tunes, too. Throw on your favorite closet staples (or shop some of this line below), jam out to the playlist below — all of the Eagles’ songs are featured — and embody that carefree spirit Allegra captures so well.
