>> One of the shows in New York I am most looking forward to is Rodarte (Tuesday at 6 pm!), so I thought I would share this little tidbit for all you fellow fans, courtesy of style.com, which of course got a preview last Thursday:

"It's Gainsborough meets Richard Avedon," Laura Mulleavy said,  showing off six looks—five dresses and one pantsuit—that made lovely use of the duo's stash of antique lace, some of which is hand-painted.  Expect blacks, whites, yellow-golds, shocking pinks, and, in a departure from their more sinuous fall pieces, lots of stiff volumes.
