My jaw dropped honestly. It's awwwful. Are their items still crazy expensive? I remember those crazy knit tights from f/w 08 retailing for like 800 dollars or something outlandish like that. This nonsense looks like forever 21 quality no joke.

I find the whole thing really upsetting. It's like when you're at school and you're told 'I know you can do better.' These girls can create exquisite clothing that once upon a time used to excite me more than almost any other label, but now, it's just like they don't know what to do or where to go, let alone who they're dressing anymore.

I think they got a lot of critisism and pressure for them to move on from the spider knitt/ punk ballerina aesthetic they had going on. They did.....and this is how we gradually ended up at this point. Had they evolved organically and at their own pace....we probably wouldn't have such a tacky collection today.

yes they do. a shirt from the s/s collection retailed for 1490 euros here, and one of the simplest dresses for 4900 and a mini mini skirt for 755 euros. i'd expect this crap to cost pretty much the same.

I was never one of those people who likes a brand, and expects them to keep to their signature without exploring new looks & ideas. But THIS is unacceptable!

Don't know what everyone is talking about. Rodarte has always been bad and tacky.

^^^ Yeah... looks like the same terrible mess to me (as perfectly exemplified by ogepma's three selections).

Their collections have always resembled a walking pile of mismatched swatches-- they just don't know the meaning of restraint. At least this time, the mess has a very literal reference, as trashy as it may be.

Since we can all agree that collections are no longer just insider fashion events made solely for buyers and editors, we have to accept that the showing of a collection is at least in part a media and publicity event. As such one of the goals of a collection is to get as many people talking about it as humanly possible. From that standpoint this is a resounding success, every blogger will talk about this, every twitter will tweet about this. These images will get maximum exposure on Tumblr and show up on the back of the aforementioned tacky-chic celebrities.

Who is going to buy Rodarte? Whoever it is will probably pick up a shoe, a logo printed sweatshirt (one that says "Radarte" for maximum ironic appeal) or a piece of jewelry. The clothes are already so cost prohibitive that no one outside of a select few will ever be able to actually purchase them. Meanwhile they'll get pulled for editorials and stylists trying to do a Carlyne Cerf-esque look will cream themselves over how ~urban~ it is to have a girl in a backwards baseball cap.

But whatever, the wheel will keep on turning. I'm glad they mixed it up and did something unquestionably different because if they were focusing on another business model they could just release the same exact etherealfairie, surfchic, mernymph thing that seems to make people happy.
