Season's Round Up # 31: RODARTE SPRING-SUMMER 2013
Strong, powerful. These are the words that instantaneously came to mind when I saw Rodarte's SS2013 RTW Women's Collection. From one piece after the other, intricate detailing and expert craftsmanship threaded the entire collection - intricate shoes [which I am lusting after next season by the way], metallic detailing, fringes and piping. I could go on and on.
Looking closely at the collection, it brings to life fantasy in an unexpected way. Think fashionable warrior princesses sashaying down the runway and there you have Rodarte’s collection this season. You must think it’s not that wearable then, but believe me when I say this – you’d be surprised. Nit pick on the pieces here and there, layer them with some of your daily wear and you’ll be thrusted forward into a powerful fantasy. I think what’s crucial here is the sense of female empowerment the designs of Kate and Laura Mulleavy brought to life. And if that weren’t enough reason to love this collection ladies, then I don’t know what will!
