Neon lights sticking out of cinder blocks greeted attendees of Kate and Laura Mulleavy's Fall 2013 show for Rodarte, which took '90s motifs to an extreme and beautiful place. The sisters mixed patterns, textures, and metaphors to pleasing effect, perhaps best articulated in a selection of dresses with tie-dye gowns and sheer bodices with a floral appliqué. There were also lots of gauzy layers: sheer skirts stuck out from underneath outerwear, and there were opaque panels attached to slinky sheer dresses. Of course, it wouldn't be Rodarte if there weren't a completely unexpected element to the show. Enter the flesh-toned socks some of the models wore that were decorated with tattoos by tattoo artist Scott Campbell. Our full review will be posted shortly.
