>> Sometimes I find Rodarte a bit hard to swallow - their pieces are a such a reflection of rawness, raw talent.
But one thing makes me keep going back - I am fascinated by the Mulleavy sisters themselves. They make the most obscure literary and cultural references, are obsessed with the interiors of a garment rather than the outside, and live in suburban California. I love that they stay so removed from the industry and yet are so included. They seem to me the ultimate fashion geeks - I think that's why I'm so intrigued.
