Lena Dunham’s Bestie Just Launched a Gorg #Girlboss Style Collab
More than any other sartorial season, summer and spring fashion collections are often the most inspiring. Think: how ethereal bathing suits make you reeeeeally want to try mermaid hair + get you itching to escape to a faraway beach. Or, how breezy dresses and fringed everything bring out your inner wild child + flower crown DIY-er whether you’re going to a major music festival or not. But those collections have nothing on the new Rachel Antonoff collab with & Other Stories, a clothing line specially designed to unleash your inner #Girlboss.
Available on the Swedish retailer’s website starting May 12, the collection was based on the idea of a go-getter on the campaign trail through a very Rachel Antonoff lens. Judging by the seersucker suits, collared dresses and pastel crop tops that make up the line — preppy pieces all begging to be paired with bold-colored loafers or modern brogues — *this* boss-lady is as charming as she is tough-on-the-issues, something the “It’s Time” sweatshirt and red, white and blue “We Try Harder” tee don’t let you forget. The vibe is fun, but at the same time strong: it’s the most gorg Girl Power style we’ve seen.
To bring that to life, Antonoff tapped her pal, Lena Dunham, to direct a short film called “Vote Audrey” that follows a young girl through the trials and tribulations of running for office + her daydreams of glory. In the vid starring Zoe Kazan, Audrey becomes president of the United States, appoints her mom as First Lady and has a dance party with the all-girl Supreme Court. But everything she imagines (neighbors ignoring, scolding and berating her) in IRL isn’t a total fantasy. A TV reporter says of her accomplishments, “You’re also a very young women, that’s strange.” Audrey replies, “Well, you know, girls can do anything!” PREACH.
