Perfect sum up. I love the white dresses. It's not my favourite collection but it's still interesting. I'd much rather look at this than a Calvin Klein.

helmut.newton I could listen to you talk about fashion all day.

I havebeen a huge fan rodarte ever since their first collection, and I absolutley loved this. So beautiful and such emotional clothing. The last couple of white dresses brought tears to me eyes.

Fingers crossed we get to see some of this collection on the red carpet. I can see keira knightley, Kirsten dunst, natalie portman and dasha zhukova in some of these dresses.

This looks more like a spring collection than their actual spring collection did.

The white dresses are exquisite. Not fond of the rest.

Say what you want,but those printed dress at the beginning are just plain hideous,same with all the knitted printed pieces,you call them "edgy",I call them ugly!
The rest is typical Rodarte stuff,which I like
The heels are just divine,Nicholas Kirkwood is a master when it comes to shoes!

I must say... I just liked this collection at first, but you've (kind of) converted me with a valid point; Rodarte garments, particularly those specially made, always shine on the red carpet. It kind of kills that old notion that a look can be too edgy or too couture for a regular, day to day person- let's be honest, Reese Witherspoon is about as beige as they come. What they're doing is really revolutionary in that regard; they're brining something long devoid from celebrity looks to the forefront- looks that aren't just beautiful and intricate, but inspired.

I've just realised what Rodarte reminds me of!

When I was a child, in the haberdashery departments of department stores, they used to drape pieces of fabric, haphazardly, all over the mannequins (presumably, to demonstrate what could be done with it?).

Apparently, they could have done that to a model, sent her down a runway and charged a small fortune for it?

Disappointed. Though I don't know what I was expecting.

Only one phrase can be used to describe this collection: SENSORY OVERLOAD. I am all for an abundance of various textures married together but the lack of harmony in a few of these pieces is unsettling and frankly, rather 'ugly'. On the same token, there are a lot of stunning pieces where the textures and prints work flawlessly with one another. All of those white looks are sublime. If only they'd taken that route for the entire collection. It could have been an exploration of white + varying textures.
