Is it me or has Rodarte gotten confused with the seasons? This collection fully looks like a S/S collection, meanwhile their S/S 2010 collection looked like a F/W Collection. I admit some of the pieces seem really nice, but I find some of the looks totally unflattering!

I actually would have mistaken this collection for Altuzarra (Look back to what he did for S/S 2010) and Rodarte probably decided in addition to stitch random garments on top of those looks and voila!

As a plus though, the shoes are a BIG upgrade from last seasons, I wonder if the batteries are included with them for those lightbulbs stuck inside the heel?

The knits and floral pieces are god-awful. They look like some fashion student picked up Galliano's rags and sewed them together.

The final dresses - the white wrap ones - are hauntingly beautiful, and I thought the use of a black light was interesting...

It's as if there is too much detail. Adding more and more details doesn't make an outfit look more interesting; it just adds unnecessary layering and in this case there is just too much layering going on. Especially with those floral pieces, there is far too much draping and mixing happening.

But in overall it's not a bad collection, I think they just kinda either overdid it or were trying too hard, to the point where the whole thing is just too distracting.

This will REALLY test the true Rodarte fan.

A review from The Associated Press.

Quote:
Rodarte finds strong visuals in a hazy place
By SAMANTHA CRITCHELL (AP) 5 hours ago

NEW YORK The bittersweet drama that played out on the Rodarte runway Tuesday reminded fashion insiders why Kate and Laura Mulleavy have become such a big deal in such a short time.

The theme of their collection was the hazy state of consciousness that comes between sleep and being awake. Lovely, lace-draped dresses in a light, almost dusty palette captured the feeling of vintage lingerie and wallpaper prints but there was something weighing on them, too a seriousness, a respect.

The chunky knits, sometimes with yarn fringe, were just on the right side of looking well loved and worn in, yet luxurious in a way that a designer collection demands.

In a statement, the Mulleavys said they had become interested in a small town on the Mexican-American border that has rich visuals they mined for inspiration, from a broken-down pickup truck on the side of the road to local factory workers.

They were struck by the area's "haunted, hazy, melancholy" vibe. They thought about the workers who'd pull the late-night shift and how they'd walk to work half asleep.

"The idea of dreaming/sleepwalking guided the development of the collection in that we imagined a girl dressing herself haphazardly in the dark of night and focused on building garments with both long and short components," the sisters explained.

The layers that have been so popular at New York Fashion Week were certainly on this catwalk in a Chelsea artist space, but the Mulleavys had a lighter touch because of their airy fabrics and loose-weave knits.
"The draped dresses in gauze and lace were spectacular," said Ikram Goldman, the Chicago retailer who advises first lady Michelle Obama on her wardrobe. "The way they were manipulated and draped to perfection on the body. ... They were beautiful. They were perfect."

The California-based Mulleavys, who won the Council of Fashion Designers of America award last year for top womenswear designers, draw fashion's A-list to their shows, but they're not players seeking the limelight: They barely peek their heads out from behind the curtain for their bows.
Instead, they focus all the attention showered on them onto the clothes.

it's not terrible , but i don't like it much at all. some of the looks look like they wrapped and twisted old bedsheets,sofa covers,dresses, whatever fabric they could find, around the models. i'm not a fan of the textures or prints layered either. overall it looks too messy DIY arts-and-crafts for me.

like helmut.newton i don't think they're progressing or challenging themselves.

i want to get a good look at the shoes though. nicholas kirkwood has done a good job in the past.
