The new collection from Nigeria-based design label Republic of Foreigner (ROF) reminds me of Theory and Rag & Bone with a twist. Clean and interesting cuts like Theory - subtle elegant and a relaxed feel like Rag & Bone. I really like the name of the collection "Re-belle": a mixture of rebellion and beauty - which is quite fitting when looking at these designs.

Here is the much more sophisticated explanation from the ROF press release: "The Re-Belle Collection is a dynamic display of feminized militarism. (...), while real military garments/uniforms often enforce hierarchy and conformity, subcultures often subvert this meaning into one of non-conformity and individualism--for this reason, the name of the collection "Re-belle" was inspired." Touché!

I can see myself in this collection. My favorite is the interesting cut dress in the second picture as well as the dotted blouse and the print pants.  
What are your favorites?
