The Archive, San Francisco is proud to introduce Rorke Bader to our collection of designer brands!

Rorke Bader is based in New York. Rorke Bader is built at the intersection of elegance, agency, mobility, sophistication, and function. With a strong emphasis on unique pattern cutting that is rooted in classic tailoring but augmented with modern technology and an insatiable curiosity for form, experimentation, and movement, Rorke Bader creates garments that are meant to serve and enable their wearer. Through long, clean lines, hidden closures, dramatic silhouettes, and unique pattern solutions, Rorke Bader creates pieces both versatile and reliable, ready for any wearer's daily wardrobe. With its debut collection, Particles in the Void, Rorke Bader seamlessly merges diverse elements into a unified whole. Each garment in the collection synthesizes a carefully curated selection of influences, reflecting a pragmatic yet innovative philosophy that transcends traditional fashion boundaries. Rorke Bader's inaugural collection is a practical embodiment of the brand's belief in the power of resonance, where every piece contributes to a greater, well-rounded whole for the modern, dynamic individual.
