This one’s for the ladies who like a little bit of nostalgia in their wardrobe, with New York’s Radenroro reviving those childhood ballerina dreams and unicorn wishes in a completely wearable, sexy tomboy, non-Lisa Franks kind of way.
The glass door displaying the Radenroro logo, the namesake depiction of an Indonesian princess, leads into a square room with two long windows overlooking a string of fabric stores down below. Radenroro headquarters are located on the 9th floor of a high rise overlooking New York’s Garment District, a very short stroll away from Bryant Park.
The building’s windows are a little muggy, but the warmth of the day’s 75 degree weather shines through into the quaint showroom. The Spring 2012 Collection is placed along the wall to the right as soon as you enter the space, which also celebrates its one year anniversary this month.
An abstract multicolor unicorn print stands out in the lineup of bright hues for this collection. Designer Liquica Anggraini created the signature print with her background in graphic design, one of multiple attempts – along with multimedia, programming , and animation – at figuring out what she wanted to do with herself after coming to New York around ten years ago from Indonesia.
