Rodarte Is In Fact Ready To Wear

We're curious why Rodarte is always given so much flack for being "unwearable" when all we saw this Spring 2009 were trousers, jackets, sweaters (albeit distressed ones), and party frocks. Once again the critics have praised their collection and left in a footnote that Rodarte need be more wearable. It deserves to be mentioned that we cannot match, in our mind, the number of real-life wearers to the number of editorial appearances, however, we can say the same thing about Prada or Pucci. We can say the same thing about all of the big designers, in fact, because the magazines infiltrate our culture and the women who can afford to buy these garments (unless they are celebrities) do not. So Rodarte, we think, isn't unwearable so much that is expensive. We're pretty sure, because the Mulleavy sisters are young, and because they are down-to-earth and intellectual, that people just hope that their designs will go mass market. This unrequited high street love should change, we think, sooner or later.
