Bittersweet feelings here... I'm sure glad they seem to keep working on a gradual evolution but as much as the usual Rodarte fan that I am, I'm not feeling this collection. Maybe it'll grow in me with time... I believe they are good show girls, so I have to see it in motion.

I feel that the inspiration is not as whimsical as it usually is, this whole 'Dorothy/Amish/Southern Americana' nostalgia ain't cutting it for me... and as much as everyone dislikes seeing big names thrown in other collections, I am getting some slight Marc Jacobs F/W 10.11 vibes here (but he captured that feeling better without getting too literal).

I'm not giving up yet, as I feel that the fabric selection is quite exquisite. The hair/makeup is quite lovely too. Even the venue seems interesting! So I really don't know why it isn't an instant love for me.

LOVING IT! Such a delicate collection with hard, angular edges...the coats are my favorite part of the collection. They slightly remind me of Mary Poppins!

I love the virgin (angelic / virgin mary) vs. whore (slutty red / mary magdelen) dichotomy here, with most leaning toward the pure, angelic side. This is a standout collection thematically and commerically.

KUDOS to the Rodarte team!

And triangles, too, tie into the theme, as triangles are often linked to divinity (and of course the father, the son and the holy ghost - I have no idea if they were going this "catholic" in their imagery, but it's what comes to mind for me. certainly spiritual, whether in a new-age-fairy-type-way, or amish, or catholic, or all of these and more, for e.g., potential earth goddesses in those lovely green floaty pieces).

At first glance I got an 'eskimo' vibe, I think it's the footwear mixed with some snowqueen references...

I did not expect them to go down this road, but I'm glad they did. I really like it especially the neutral colored pieces.

beautifully executed. love the digitally printed gowns. i love their work the most when they mix and manipulate textiles though. they will always be artists that do fashion to me.

Another excellent step in the right direction. Fall/Winter 2010 was about as long as they could bear to keep going with the draped, collaged aesthetic...and then they produced the excellent Spring/Summer 2011 show...and I think that this season is even better.

Can't wait to see a video, as the staging and the music are always so interesting and provoking.

If Marc Jacobs did Couture it would look this.

I hate it. The cuts are very unflattering imo.

I'm not in love with it as much as last collection, which was amazing, but there are some outfits here that I'm loving. Overall good show I'd say.
