Rajo Laurel presents Alchemie, his cruise/ transition collection for 2017. The pieces are roomy and chic that follow Rajo’s inspiration for the season. Taking from how alchemy makes precious elements out of metals, the collection “transcends the calculated definition of workwear with the unrestricted flow of the Rajo Laurel aesthetic.”
My personal picks are the large, high-waisted striped pants that can be both for work and for play, depending on your chosen top.
Dresses that are fit for sit-down dinners and cocktails are also an easy pick for those who don’t want to fuss with trends.
Rajo’s collection plays with different fabrics such as stretch crepes and chiffons along with lace and other novelty textiles. It also has a neutral palette, dotted with dark colors that will be easy to integrate in any wardrobe.
