Fashionoffice tip: Don't miss The Rodnik Band's website! It's an entertaining resource for another view on the history of modern art (category collections), music (The Rodnik Band's 'Venus in Sequins' is a new interpretation of Lou Reed's 'Venus in Furs'), legendary comics on clothing (Rodnik x Peanuts Collection for Urban Outfitters), photos of fans of the label like Cara Delevingne etc.
