NYFW - Rodarte Fall 2010

According to the Rodarte Designers, Kate and Laura Mulleavy this collection explores their Mexican roots. It's evident in the playful patterns, the colours - everything had an arts and crafts feel - patchwork held pieces of floral fabrics, chiffons and velvets together. The shoes, designed by Nicholas Kirkwood resembled melting wax - and the mood was set at the show with two candle structures which were aflame. The show was playful in comparison to their last season’s effort, which had a more unsettling theme.

The show came to a climatic end, when the light went dim and the clothing began to light up - the heels of the candle drip shoes emitted a blue light - which was both surprising and dazzling. The collection as a whole was impressive - although the patchwork dresses didn’t seem to stand out quite as much as their last season’s ensembles, it’s still evident that the two sisters at the helm of the operation are creative and inventive when it comes to their designs.
