In classic Rodebjer style, this year’s Pre-Fall collection is an homage to the juxtaposition of femininity and strength. Inspired by the explorations of ethologist and primatologist Jane Goodall, flowing silk chiffon is styled with structured khaki to create soft and hard silhouettes that capture the imagination.

Goodall has spent her lifetime studying the behaviors of animals, particularly chimpanzees in Tanzania, and became the only human ever to be accepted into their society. After many years of observing animal behavior, Goodall shifted her focus to a broader concern of the conservation between humans and animals.

Rodebjer celebrates the work of this courageous woman with whimsical, safari-influenced silhouettes and unique jungle prints. Elephants, zebras and other animals adorn the Chandra Shirt Dress, while a subtle tiger and leaf pattern is hidden in the Sellen Dress jacquard.
