It's pretty: cool pastel colours, some embroidered India-inspired looks, and much Impressionism - summery!

I definitely don't like this collection as a whole. The second half looks better but I'm still not a fan. The prints are not working.

Well, I have a really soft spot for feminine shapes and the combination of blue tones with golden ones. So this really makes my heart pump. I love the collection and the label is quickly becoming one of my favorites.

The shapes of the dresses are so unflattering. Nothing stood out to me.

Hmm. Im also not feeling most of the color palette. Not that they're less springy but just not very easy to pull off. I cant imagine women desiring these colors for spring. Maybe the colors might look better in person so I shall not judge.

Quite a miss this time. Most of this looks like some tragic Christian Dior Resort collection circa 2009-10.

First off, I LOVE the variety of colors (very painterly)....however, after digesting it, the idea of referencing Van Gogh seems a bit out of their vicinity (Rodarte has always rocked the post-apocalyptic, star wars, death valley, black swan, devlish-raw-fragility identity so well). Their previous collection (Red Woods, Fairy Nympfs of California) reminded me of my own childhood of growing up in Northern CA- Rodarte is amazing at capturing the Americana, the lost identity of the American West (they portray it in such a romantic and raw manner)...

This collection seemed a tiny bit OFF. Because they're still (kinda sorta) newish designers, it's simply a collection that shows their process and experimentation- that's all how I will value it and I still look forward to their next collection

The collection doesn't seem cohesive at all, to say there is too much going on here is an understatement. And again, just like last season, I feel like they have taken their inspirations and made them too literal -- there is no guessing involved or subtitles it's very in-your-face and in turn feels like some cheesy arts and crafts project. The blue strapless sunflower dress where they wove the flowers into the lace fabric is the direction they should have gone in instead of the dresses that look as if the sunflowers are screen-printed on.

I think it's awful. Very Van-Gogh-Museum-Shop-ish. Or even worse: Amsterdam Tourist shop. I've seen those prints too much and the clothes look so table cloth like! Shame cause I usually love Rodarte.

I love it. I love the colors, it's fun and young. (doesn't feel old to me) This stands out to me, especially in the boring mess that is NYFF to me.

Can see this collection becoming very popular amongst the celebs.
