Friends with Benz

Last Friday night was a magical night as  Roan and the World Pediatric Project hosted nearly 600 of the Richmond area’s fashion set for a fashion show and auction. Chris Benz was feted as his Spring 2013 Collection was unveiled to rave revues. More than $550,000 was raised on the night providing life-giving opportunities to hundreds of children from underdeveloped countries.


Below are some moments from the event:

Brits and Badass

by rachel on October 23rd, 2012 (No Comments)

The vintage motorcycle roars to the end of the lane, the engine makes its final gasp, the helmet comes off and the long cascading hair swooshes to the side. It’s a she! And she’s lovely.  How is this possible from a fashion perspective? The British group Belstaff has become a beacon of badass while maintaining a level of luxury and femininity that is unmistakable. The season Roan introduced Belstaff to our clients and it is clear that this is a look and a feel that will last.  Everyone NEEDS a Belstaff vest or jacket in their life. No other outerwear addresses a chic casual life as well.  We can’t promise that there will be many left in the coming days, only that if you own it you will love it and thank us for bringing this incredible collection to Richmond.

Cooler than Coolest

As you have read on our website, Isabel Marant has landed at Roan and its like a new life of inspirational harmony has begun. We’ve heard and read a million fabulous things about Isabel Marant’s collection but nothing beats the bubbling excitement that hits you when you play with these pieces IRL (in real life). Almost every article online and in print has commented on how she nails Parisian chic, effortlessly. All too true! With so many fun, airy blouses in sexy but subtle prints, and funky yet tailored jackets, picking a fave is painful. The embroidered navajo skinny jeans take the cake in my opinion. Navajo prints are everywhere you turn this fall from bags to jewelry and boots to ponchos. Putting the design on denim without getting too kitschy? Hard thing to do, and well, Isabel has done it. Thank you, Ms. Marant for perfecting the balance between modern bohemian and classic chic.

Isabel Marant Knock knock…who’s there? Isabel Marant. Isabel Marant who?  Isabel Marant, you know the sensation from Paris that is turning the fashion world upside down, is barely accessible in the US and is sold exclusively at Roan.  Come see what fun girls around the globe are buzzing about and see how we have playfully curated the collection for the beautiful girls of the South.

back to school, back to beirn.

It’s that time of year again where we all must wave good-bye to our summer fun and buckle down for the business of autumn. What does one need for this go-go-go season? A Beirn bag. They are the perfect bag for a woman on-the-run. You can throw in your makeup bag, wallet, a magazine for the train ride to work, heck, maybe even an extra pair of shoes for a sassy happy hour change up! Made of authentic snakeskin and lined with lightweight canvas these bags won’t add extra weight to your daily journey. And did we mention the rainbow of colors they come in? Don’t worry, it’s not just for the cold seasons. Your trusty Beirn will be right there to haul your water bottle, spf, and summer reads to all your summer get-a-way spots.

A Break in the Weather

by roanshop on August 12th, 2011 (No Comments)

Finally a little relief from the summer swelter.  That time of the year when it’s still hot but you don’t want to look like you are on your way to the pool is approaching. Along with school, meetings and the normal pace of life. We’re ready for this ever increasing moment of the wardrobe, fall colors/summer weights.  Come in and check out the latest from Thakoon and A.L.C. for perfect transition clothes.  Next week will mark the arrival of our first delivery from Rachel Zoe which is totally fun and surprisingly affordable.  Following that will be the introduction of the most coveted collection in the world, Isabel Marant. We can’t wait for you to meet her collection.

Is your wardrobe relevant?

by roanshop on May 3rd, 2011 (No Comments)

Alber Elbaz  of Lanvin believes it is more important to be relevant than fashionable.  True dat Alber!  As the warm, breezy sultry weather sets in for late spring and summer we are asking all Roanies…is your wardrobe relevant?  Do you have things in your closet that just don’t work no matter what pieces you try to put with them?  Are you acquiring pieces that you cannot wait to don for your next Art Gallery opening or charity event?  When you head out to a meeting, do you have the ammunition to make you appropriately chic?  Its time to prepare, gear up and get ready for the weeks and months ahead.  Its time to purge what is not working and find your groove with pieces that make you want to get out and live, work, and celebrate.  Never has the assortment at Roan been more relevant to fashion and to life.  To be real, to be beautiful, to be confident, all it takes is a little Roaning!
