I am totally, completely and utterly in love with this.
And the prints are amazing. Every piece is a work of art, can't even begin to imagine the price points!
My fave collection of theirs, and i realy loved their others.

Even though maybe their dresses aren't considered "wearable" by the mainstream, I still find that Rodarte has developed quite a loyal following by celebrities who seem to love to wear their garments and support Laura and Kate.
Clothing like this doesn't come out of American designers too often.

berlin have you been to colette yet to check their curated section and window?

my...i keep coming back to look at these looks and i am more and more impressed every time. it's like they upped the ante in the bewitching department. so mesmerising these textures are.

am i the only who's being reminded of swamp thing meets dario argento regarding the venue? you know they love their horror films...

I'm not really feeling it, very conceptual for my taste, looks unfinished, too many different fabrics, too dark, I can't wait to see the retail version of the collection.

i don't think the clothes by rodarte work very well on pictures, i've seen quite a few of their clothes up close and it's much more beautiful in real life..

amazing !
For me good clothes have to look excellent from every angle, afar and close. This looks like patchwork to me, with radon ribons sowed together. Does nothing for the female shape (personal preference here). No amount of up close detail would make me want to wear something that looks like a result of ingneous use of left over fabric.

But they have a lot of fans which i don't understand. I am obviously missing something.

Love the picture of the three girls, in black outfits, so dark. Love the vampire vibe.

so you value everything based only on surface?

and everyone has their own taste. just because you don't particularly enjoy it doesn't mean the rest of us can't appreciate it. we are individuals afterall. and so are designers. the thing is,rodarte have a very different vision...one that goes against the standard ideal of fashion,particularly american fashion...they appreciate texture and workmanship....it may be expressed differently contrary to your perceptions but fashion is not just a business,it's also a medium.

These two never fail to impress me. It's such a brilliant mesh of colour and texture and print.

Got to say however I wish the "tattoos" weren't in marker pen... that's just me being nitpicky however at some of them rubbing off slightly. Such a great aesthetic otherwise, really compliments the garments.
