Rodarte_2 >> At Rodarte, Laura and Kate Mulleavy riffed on "Japanese horror films" with agressively studded Louboutin shoes, deathly pale faces, and plenty of blood red.

I admit, before seeing Rodarte in motion — and in person — I was a little confused about the hype surrounding the label.  But after seeing the loosely-woven tights, the angora dresses, the punky sugar plum fairies zig zag past, I am converted.

Not many designers can take two such contrasting looks — pretty, pretty princess and Sid Vicious — and make them mesh so well together.  It was clear that the girls were still exploring a few elements from Spring: the Degas-esque tutu dresses, the studded shoes, the draped and pleated chiffon dresses, the metallic fitted pants; when I asked Kate about it, she told me they "were just trying to find [their] thing." But by no means were they mired in a past collection — and I look forward to seeing where the whimsical Mulleavy girls go from here.
