the detailing is truly precious.
it's such a rare case this one, but I see how it could happen.. getting lost in that labyrinth of microscopic perfection, and the moment you zoom it out, it's.. yikes, ugly.

I suppose the repetitiveness of this collection is only natural. if a formula worked wonders once, you can shamelessly repeat it for a second time and a third time and even a fourth time and then voila, you turned it into a 'signature'. hard to understand a formula goes away and a signature doesn't. you can take all the leggings and crochets to the dumpster but their attention to detail would inevitably remain.. someone should tell 'em that, so they can start projecting themselves beyond uniforms.

The only saving grace of this show is those 3 gowns ..........they should explore more shapes with those colors....the Hot topic stripper shoes and leggings need to go....

shoes aren't as deadly as the spiked ones from last season.

I think I would be disappointed if they explored shapes that were too different to what they'd already done.

Rodarte is all about fluidity, lightness, air and the clothes being a second skin - almost weightless. And thats what I love about them. Its dreamy because its like wearing air - which is so romantic, no?

I like their aesthetic and don't think they should change.

You know not every fashion designer has to to playing with shapes EVERY season a la Nicholas Ghesquiere for Balenciaga. He does what he does perfectly. And Rodarte do what they do perfectly.

Isn't that enough?!

Belts and chains look quite tacky! I don't mind it on the shoes as much as on the clothes.

Those shoes are... amazing. Just spectacular.

Are they Rodarte or Christian Loubtin/Sergio Rossi/Salvatore Ferragamo FOR Rodarte?

i really dont know how i feel about this collection..
i do love many aspects of it.. its like romantical punk with a twist of airy carnival goddess yet i feel so much of it looks too familiar.
