CLOSE-UP: Rodarte Spring/Summer 2013

The Mulleavy sisters at RODARTE have this ability to make every designer in New York look like they are just designing Barbie clothes. What they come out with might not be 100% pretty or sellable, but they really do wow the crowd, talk about true show-stopppers. It’s only fair to look up on the clothes in details because you know those are not just average clothes, there are so much more to look at (I will really do something extreme just to see the pieces up close). This RODARTE collection – inspired by “medieval and fantasy role-playing games” – is like watching those game warriors coming to life. Leather and fringe for Spring, a little extreme I think! Sometimes I can’t believe this brand actually hailed from US, California, can you imagine them alongside Mary Katrantzou or Peter Pilotto in London Fashion Week?

    honestly, love rodarte but there are so many elements from past balenciaga collections, it feels familiar

    Yes sometimes I feel that Altuzarra and Proenza Schouler are very Balenciaga too – the French house is influential.
