you missed my point and you are obviously seeing word that i did not type.
- I never talked about liking clothes on the surface, but wanting my clothes to look immaculate up close and from afar.

The clothes that I find beautiful do not look like Rodarte. I would never buy there dresses. I don't get them. I has nothing to do with business, my definition of fashion and all that crap. It's not my taste period. it's that simple.

This is incredible. I was afraid I'd be slightly disappointed like I was last season but this is just amazing. I love the vibe...gothic pagan warriors. It's beautiful. The texture of the pants along with the detail work at the bottom is really impressive, I'm glad that they don't leave the pants as an afterthought even after all of the work that goes into the gowns. I can't wait for a video and the full collection. The picture of the final three gowns is eerily beautiful.

lol, looks like there's a difference of opinion. some people like "pretty" clothes and some people appreciate the beauty of a concept and workmanship that is at the heart of Rodarte. although I love wearable clothes, it gets very boring a lot of the times, especially with this season. I appreciate rodarte's freshness and vision.

cause i want to post my opinion on it, and hoping they would finally create something i like.
But i made a mistake cause it's obviously some kind of sin to not adore Rodarte clothes.

I've never been a fan of Rodarte aesthetic and it's not going to change, but it's nice to see them moving on. Slowly, but still.

eh
I was really hoping I would love this collection, but the more I saw of it the more it offends me. Their were a few pieces I liked, and I don't want to judge prematurely without seeing some detail shots, yet I was expecting more from the girls this season.All I found was darkness for darkness's sake, their was no beauty, even twisted beauty in it. I get that they can combine texture and color, but with most of these dresses it is just ugly. Yes they are artful and do something most in the fashion industry don't, however, that doesn't give them a free pass in my book.

The dresses with the looping and the long fringe pieces are disgusting, but what can I expect when their influence was that tiny bag lady Tavi.

And that green lighting made everyone look terrible, and the clothes as well.
