Zara x Narciso Rodriguez Collection Launches
Spanish retailer Zara has launched their collection with designer Narciso Rodriguez. The collection is now available to order online and through the Zara app. What can you expect from this new Zara designer collection?
The collection is basically Narciso Rodriguez’s greatest hits from past seasons (1996 to 2018.) There’s even a slip dress replica of the wedding dress that the designer made for Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy. While the designs are classic and will be familiar to Rodriguez customers, the prices won’t be familiar to Zara customers. Zara’s customers are used to low-cost, fast fashion prices. The Zara Narcisco Rodriguez collaboration’s prices range from $119 for a wool bustier to $499 for wool coat.
I just bought the Ruched Red Dress for $239.00 US. To me, this is the most versatile dress in the collection and can be worn from to office to cocktails, justifying the cost.
The longer slip dresses in the Zara and Narciso Rodriguez collaboration are closer to $300 US., with the cream slip dress priced at $ 279 US.
When you go to the Zara website or app, you’ll note that not all items from the collection are yet available for order. Some items are listed as coming soon, and you can select that Zara send you a notification when your size is available.
For office wear, the collection includes a wool jacket, a wool blend skirt, midi dresses and tops. The Zara collection also features accessories including a belt, booties, high-heels and leather bags.
What do you think readers, are you lusting after Zara’s version of classic Rodriguez pieces from past seasons? This collection is more upscale than Rodriguez’s previous collaborations with Kohl’s and eBay, but so are the prices.
I’ll post further details and a review about Zara’s version of Narcisco Rodriguez when I receive my red ruched dress or find a Zara store that has the garments on the racks to try on. It’ll be interesting to see if a new generation of shoppers are enthusiastic about this collection which looks back at the glory days of Mr. Rodriquez’s past seasons.
