Runway Report: Rodarte Spring 2010

Kate and Laura Mulleavy presented a parade of post-apocalyptic warrior princesses for their spring 2010 Rodarte collection.

Models were inked from shoulder to wrist in tribal sleeve tattoos and walked a black sand-covered runway, through the thick fog of dry ice, in Nicholas Kirkwood bondage heels.

Opening the show was section of short dresses with twisted plaid and raw-edged fabric followed by a trio of longer black gothic dresses and a pair of skinny black rocker pants—the former embellished with feathers and strips of leather binding the arms and neck, and the latter with silver zippers and cut outs along the thigh and calf. A beautiful red and black tie-dye section seemed slightly less intimidating, delicately pieced together with strands of spidery wool (reminiscent of Rodarte's fall 2008 cobweb knits), braided belts, and ruched leather.

The Mulleavy sisters are expected to be among the most forward-thinking designers to show during New York Fashion Week and, for this, they did not disappoint. Today they proved why Rodarte remains one of the most highly anticipated and exciting shows of the season.
