August 18, 2005 (Los Angeles)—Inspired by runway fashion, the folklore and fairytales of eastern Europe and Russia are influencing the looks this fall at Rampage Stores. The emphasis is on print and pattern and heavy embellishment. There is a lot of embroidery and brocade ribbon trim. The proportions are changing—longer more voluminous silhouettes with cropped bottoms and shrunken jackets. It’s all about volume now.
Colors prevalent in the Fall Collections at Rampage Stores are brown and neutrals with spice tones of orange, amber, cognac as well as mixed with teals/greens. Key silhouettes and accessories featured will be knickers, poet/peasant tops, vests, corset tops, cropped military jackets, gaucho/cropped pants, wide-leg slouchy trousers, Empire seam dresses and tops, tunic length tops for belting, sweater coats, shrugs and boleros, boots, and wide corset belts. The collection includes velvet, burnout velvet, menswear patterns, fur/suede, lace, and silk charmeuse.
After years of offering more down market or mass appeal fashions, Rampage Stores have emerged and re-defined themselves to offer elevated merchandise with sophisticated apparel and accessories for today’s modern young woman. The new Rampage Stores, launched in Fall 2004, meet the needs of stylish young women who desire the looks of contemporary fashion, as well as quality and value.
Rampage Stores offer their proprietary “heart-moon-star” label designed for their stores by leading Los Angeles, New York and European designers and offer sophisticated branded labels in key Rampage Store locations. The Rampage Stores core customer is the 22 to 30 year old female who is looking for more contemporary fashion statements that can’t be found in mass markets.
