Rodarte Catwalk Fashion Show New York FW2010
Rodarte’s Kate and Laura Mulleavy have become New York’s young dream team. And that means expectations are high, because everybody is curious for their next imaginary adventure.
For the past few seasons, the sisters have explored a beautifully aggressive vision. Yesterday they showed a more lighter and softer side, with a collection full of feminine nomads.
Backstage the sisters told WWD they had been thinking about Juarez, Mexico, border towns and “the idea of sleepwalking and existing between worlds.” The result was a romantic collection in delicate colors (light gray, tawny brown and ivory), a beautiful and intrigueing collage of knits and yards of traditional Mexican lace.
Sheer silk pants were worn under wrap skirts and densely woven sweaters that hugged the body. Often, the fabric looked roughly cut and draped at random to compose a single piece.
The show’s finale looked like a fairytale, with a glow in the dark effect at the shoes and some details in the clothes. It fit perfectly with the backround of dripping candles.
