Double Take: Costume National Hearts Rodarte

Just as I said that it's normal for fashion designers to draw inspiration from one another, one more case popped up to further prove my point. This time, Costume National looked to Rodarte's Fall '08 collection to create one of the pieces in its 2009 Resort line. The fashion world, moi-self included, were awestruck by Rodarte's innovative, beautifully crafted Fall gowns (left). I remember how airy yet strong they looked as they floated past me on the runway. Costume National's version is strikingly similar not only because of its lightness, but because of the abstract multicolor design and the one shoulder. I'm happy to see Rodarte's creativity being multiplied; it's too genius to only be enjoyed by the fashion elite.

I love these dresses! - but neither of them are anything new. I know that fashion always recycles itself, and I'm fine with that, but how can you say either of them are innovative?!

I know, it's crazy...I'm definitely not thinking about 2009 yet!
