“Rodarte Spring 2012”


Rodarte. Rodarte. Rodarte. This was one of those collections where fashion meets art to it’s maximum level print-wise. The whole idea of using Vicent van Gogh’s paints as prints was pretty interesting since they took them and stamped them into un-conventional yet classic shapes reminiscent of the 50’s prom dresses (one thing I love) levitating down the runway. Then, according to Nicole Phelps, the Mulleavy sisters said that they were also inspired by Disney’s take on the classic fairy tale: “Sleeping Beauty”, a theme that was mostly abstract until Vlada Rolsyakova came out wearing a midnight blue enchanting evening dress with a black sheer tulle overlay embellished with crystals and when Karlie Kloss closed the show in an evening purple gown with a (yes sheer tulle overlays are THE thing) sheer tulle overlay fully embellished with crystals. Crystal pretty much adorned several looks, making the princess-y theme understandable even though it all made sense at the end of the collection. Color-wise the sisters used pretty much elaborated a color palette quoting van Gogh’s greens, purples, and yellow tones.

Not my favorite collection from Rodarte, but I like it, very beautiful collection.


With this post I finish posting my favorites from New York Fashion Week (MBFW).
