^^I agree, Scott. With Rodarte, I never feel like they ever really copy one collection to the next...it seems like what happens is they discover a silhouette, a technique, a color, etc. from their last show and then elaborate and reinterpret that idea in their next collection...it's totally an evolution. I commend them for this approach...they're one of the very few designers who doesn't hop, skip and jump from one collection to the next. With Rodarte, it's much more about one step at a time. I also agree with you that this season's silhouette feels stronger and more mature. I especially love the short dresses with the long sleeves...looks very smart.

This piece is stunning.

Wow Im loving this as I always do their collections, they definitely bring an new exciting flavor to NY, they are trying alot of new things with this collection, still pretty but in a less obvious tough exciting way, the colors and fabrics of the dresses are amazing, the dress on kinga a nd Vlada are standouts, excited to see the full collection!!

totally agree with dior_couture and Scott

They show good progress in each collection, and develop or add a new idea to their aesthetic, and that's what helps a good designer build a costumer or fan base, they are some of the best in the mix and match in my book and this collection proves it.

I hate to disagree with everybody, since everybody digs this, but I really can't stand it. I looks too similar to SS 09. Obviously this is just a personal taste thing. Maybe i'll like it when it hits the editorials. I do wish they had gowns this seasons, I really like the ones from SS 09. The boot are awesome though. As far as Balenciaga comparisons, i don't really see a similarity,

A little Balenciaga, a little Balmain, even a bit Versace in some of the belted dresses. But who cares? Those shots of metallic evergreen made my day.

I'm in love with the pieces where it looks like radioactive and Earthy fissures are running through them.

The fabrics are interesting, but I don't like the combinations of them. Some remind me of Prada SS 09.
Actually, I'm not a fan of Rodarte and the reason is exactly like Mr-Dale said.

I love the collection and I'm glad that it is not too space-age and I love the pops of metallic colors. Very cool. (But I usually like Rodarte so it's not a big surprise)
