We can’t say we saw this one coming. After last debuting his own collection in 2019, Narciso Rodriguez will release an exclusive capsule collection with the fast fashion retailer Zaraall inspired by original sketches from his archive.
During her more than 30 years in the industry, the Cuban-American designer became known for helping usher in ’90s minimalism, raising the bar for women’s tailoring and launching several perfume sensations and, perhaps most notably, design Carolyn Bessette Kennedy‘s wedding dress. This collaboration – a rare move for both brands – stays true to the clean lines and classic yet sexy silhouettes that made Rodriguez a success in the luxury womenswear market, with a more accessible price point, of course.
“This has been an amazing experience for me,” Rodriguez said of working with Zara in a statement. “It was great to go through the archive and revisit the things we loved. It’s also great to see them through the fresh eyes of Zara’s design team. They are a professional team who are excited about each piece and ensure that the essence of the originals are maintained.”

The 25-piece collection includes skirts ($149-$199), pants ($169), tops ($119-$129), dresses ($239-$279), outerwear ($299-$499) and even shoes ($249). If you want to embrace a chic, minimalistic, high-fashion approach to dressing without breaking the bank, this collection is calling your name. It features mostly neutral tones like beige, white and black, with the exception of a classic red dress with a side twist.
The campaign images, shot by Craig McDean, feature model Natalie Vodianova with styling by Ludivine Poiblanc. You can view the entire collection in the gallery below and shop the pieces Sept. 8 at Zara.com and in the shops.
