Rodarte AW14

The girls of Rodarte seemed to have whizzed back in time to their childhood and have tapped into what could only be described as ‘geek chic’ meets a grandmothers wardrobe. Thick framed glasses worn back with layered skivvies, and chiffons reminiscent of the 70’s transformed models into women of the geek age. Harry high pants made more than one appearance and crochet rugs chopped up and used as accessories were a secondary nod to ‘nanas’ while the scrunched down embellished skin coloured stocking-ette was something to leave most wondering about. But what really raised eyebrows was the blatant drop of Star Wars prints onto the gowns that closed the show. While this may be some sort of a guilty pleasure for the girls, I felt it was a bit meh, with no real purpose. However, that in itself could have very well been the purpose, ‘no reason, just cos we want to’. Rodarte strikes again…

  1. I am sooo confused!! reserving judgement until I can figure this one out. I really liked the Star Wars references… cool…. but I just don’t know. I revisited the Spring ’14 collection that I was so epically enamoured by and was struck by the notion that this could have been an entirely different designer – I guess that’s the very point. Head. Scratcher.
