At first I was a little disappointed with Laura and Kate Mulleavy’s Spring 2010 collection for Rodarte because the first shown pieces were way too messy and grungy for my liking and I couldn’t shake the thought of picturing homeless people in these clothes – an association I really wasn’t feeling good with.
But halfway through the show, the interesting pieces started to pour in and I was astounded at how much I’ve gone through love and hate with the whole collection. My personal favorites were the black pieces which were shown in the last third of the show. Typical Rodarte with a new twist! The collection’s leitmotif was “scarred and still beautiful” and I think this pretty much sums it up. The Rodarte sisters have once more done a great job – at least for half of the collection. What do you think of it? You can view the whole collection here.
