Ooh are you allowed to say that

I agree with you though. It's a shame the label has gone down hill. There's no sparkle any more. I really don't like this direction they are going in. I don't find anything attractive here

I like the first few cream colored outfits, they are quite pretty. But everything else from this collection just seems off. I especially hate the bodysuit thing going on with so many of the looks, it's not attractive at all (and looks incredibly uncomfortable as well). Quite disappointed in Rodarte, I was hoping that they'd put together a show-stopping collection, to make up for some of the lackluster collections in the past.

I was so excited by a couple of looks early on and then it just descended into being jaw-droppingly bad.

Rodarte used to be sooo good. Until they decided to be commercial and "sell-able". Their initial offerings were so good. This is trash.

maybe it's the starbucks cards keeping them afloat.

Golden.

I'm feeling let down that the people who love to annoy the hell out of the rest of us by dropping the designer comparisons in everysinglethread haven't blurted out the "that's so last season's Lanvin" regarding those low-slung pants over the high-cut swimsuits.

The exposed bodysuit reminds of something from the 90's or something TLC wore.

the first 18-19 or so looks were superb, but the last dress we absolutely awful, I can't get into tie dye or amateur-ish prints ever, especially when in such bold colors.
