Rodarte Catwalk Fashion Show Womenswear New York FW2013
The fall-collection of Rodarte was inspired by the West Coast, especially Santa Cruz – the town in which the sisters grew up. For decades this town has been an epicenter for surf and skate culture, which was the genesis of the collection. A progression from chic street to high boardwalk began with a series of black and nude looks, with oversized suede trenchcoats, tight bodysuits and black cropped low pants. Dreamy moments came in neutrals — like the silk jumpsuit with a sheer tulle back embroidered with angel wings.
Then it was onto the trippy side with tie-dye for evening in fluid, colorful silk gowns, some topped with angular “foam” collars in white, black or nude, others merged tie-dye skirts with crimson, rose-embroidered tulle. The show ended with a parade of acid wash, whether as real denim or filmy printed silks.
