    Yummy. Some of the looks are a bit too confusing for my taste but most of them are beautiful beautiful beautiful. That wheat print! This cross over front cut that they used a lot last season has so much potential. I’ve been looking for a dress with this cut since Miu Miu showed it for spring last year. Too bad Rodarte is absolutely inaccessible. Dries or Marni, pls do something like that!

    So dreamlike and whimsical! I love the wheat dresses!

    But some of the other silhouettes feel a bit awkward, like the red outfits on Karlie and Lindsey

    Did they only use 2 models?

      Isn’t amazing how homogenized they all look? other than a few standouts casting was focused!

    Rodarte is impeccable as always. Their collections are so much like art for the human form, with the eclectic prints and effortless draping. You can’t help but be inspired!

    They always make me long to hear the narrative behind them as well. I love the contrast between the pioneer reminiscent silhouette and the Navajo details, especially juxtaposed with the Demeter goddess dresses!

      So, can you tell me exactly which details are “Navajo?” Are you a member of the tribe? Can you tell me that they belong specifically to the Navajo tribe, or were you just generalizing to the entire Native American population when you said that? I think “Western” or “rustic” as fashiongonerogue used would have sufficed and not been culturally appropriating.
      Please think before you spill discriminating things on a great collection, and the internet in general.

        UUUMM I really don t see anything discrinating in what she is saying… It s crazy how people can be so susceptible… just to find a way to fight with someone… X_X

          I really don’t like conflict, I promise, but it’s worse to be silent than to let an issue go unnoticed. It may seem harmless to use an ethnicity to label something, but it’s not, and I thought it would be helpful to also explain why that was wrong.

            I’m sorry if I offended you, but yes I meant specifically Navajo. Navajo weaving is a respected art known for its distinctive geometric patterns and bold contrasting colors. They’ve been a topic of study in my art history classes and the geometric details in this collection, especially the diamond ones on the boots, seemed quite reminiscent of them to me.

            If they had been covered with florescent Marilyns I would of said they were like Warhol-like details with the same intent.

        This seems a bit hostile Eva. To be frank the details look rather Navajo influenced, no matter if you deem it politically correct or not. Take a look at what Google says: http://www.google.com/images?q=navajo+paterns&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi&biw=1366&bih=600
        Oddly enough they are celebrated for their textiles and am sure going to manage alright after alex”s “spill of discrimination”

        Alex these are wonderful observations and it seems the sisters have picked up a few 1940’s dress making books along the way too. It is nice to see those details echo across the collection, they have always been ones to tie everything up in a nice package of thoughts.

    I don’t think the Mulleavy sisters can do any wrong. I love every collection, each one is so innovative, but you can still see the connections to the last season. It’s like an amazing, wanderlust story that I can’t get enough of and this is such a beautiful new chapter.
    Really, really corny, but so true. This collection was inspired by “The Wizard of Oz” and California, as usual, and is amazing.

    liked a few looks, but some of the details seem to be a little out of place, nice colour palette though

    like the overall feeling… just the models look fat/big on several pieces… not sure what will look like if put them on real-life women

    Didn’t like the pantsuits but the dresses/coats were just unbeweaveable

    Perfection in every sense. Its artistic but completely whimsical and wearable. I just love their aesthetic. They refresh often cookie cutter American fashion. I love how they get inspired by their own country (Fall collection was inspired by Northern California), now Kansas prairie, they just get it. I love the messy but done hair, and soft etheral makeup as well. I cant wait to see up-close details on those patterns and shoes.

    This collection is very marketable, I don’t know if that’s a good thing – or bad.

      Totally agree. Most of the collection is very easy to wear, I normally love Rodarte, but in here I miss some risk, maybe.
