The uber-hot Rodarte label will be joining forces with retailer Opening Ceremony.

Rodarte for Opening Ceremony will be a collection that includes women's wear, accessories, eyewear, and menswear. The capsule will be available for spring at Opening Ceremony locations in New York, Los Angeles, and Tokyo. It will also be made available through select retailers.

This is the second time in recent history that Laura and Kate Mulleavy, designers of Rodarte, have collaborated with Opening Ceremony. The duo designed a collection of men's sweaters and T-shirts for the retailer last winter.

Could it be that the Mulleavy sisters and Opening Ceremony's Humberto Leon and Carol Lim are old college friends? The four are alums of University of California, Berkeley. The two companies also share a publicity firm in the New York-based agency Black Frame.

Reps for both declined to comment.
