A great 2002 Avril Lavigne song goes, “He was a punk, she did ballet.” But a new drop from & Other Stories asks, “What if, this fall fashion season, you wanted to channel both?” On Tuesday, the Swedish brand launched its Savoir Collection, a limited capsule that fuses — or clashes, depending on how you look at it — the ultra-femme, elegant yet dramatic beauty of ballet with the bold, rebellious edge of punk-rock aesthetics.
The 16-piece line includes flowing ruffled skirts and tops, structured blazers, peplum blouses, biker-inspired leather pieces, and, of course, pointe shoe-inspired pumps. The pieces can be found in shades of off-white, grey, black, and dusty purple, using fabrics like organza, tulle, and silk.
To mark the collection’s debut, & Other Stories teamed up with London-based artist Rosanna Webster — known for her dreamy collages and previous work with brands like Dior, Sacai, Loewe, Proenza Schouler, and Nike — to create the campaign images.
“With my art, I invite the viewer to get lost in the ambiguity of my compositions,” Webster said in a press release. “I like to contrast visual complexity and simplicity within the same frame.”
& Other Stories’ Savoir Collection is available to shop online now, as well as in select stores in Europe, with prices ranging from $59 to $549.
