Spring 2010: RODARTE

September 16, 2009

The Mulleavy sisters strike again as gothic decay invaded the runway at Rodarte. I don’t even know where to begin with this collection because it, like every other Rodarte collection, is so jaw droppingly innovative that I often find myself speechless. This years theme was based around the notion of being “scarred and still beautiful”. While the actual fabric was not the typically beautiful (cheese cloth, ripped up plaid, and other grungey trimmings), the construction of each piece was absolutely stunning. Each design was draped with different materials that were manipulated and bonded together in such a way that left me questioning how one even gets these clothes on. While the pieces looked old and grungey, the construction of the designs along with Nicholas Kirkwood shoes, the dark lips and tribal like drawings on the models arms projected a sense of futurism.  The collection doesn’t scream springtime jolly, but that’s the essence of Rodarte; never do the Mulleavy sisters follow the trends of the seasons, they make something that people have never seen before. What I personally enjoy about Rodarte is that while so much of it looks almost unwearable, suddenly you see a dress walking down the red carpet and realize that the designs are indeed wearable and even more beautiful than you imagined.
