Rodarte continued to forge a new path for itself with a fall 2011 presentation where the Mulleavy sisters showed off romantic creations complete with long sweeping gowns and rustic patterns. A more than adequate sequel to spring, Rodarte brought a sense of lightness to the fall season–featuring kitschy wheat prints and a powdery color scheme of ivory and sky blue hues.
Arguably one of the most anticipated shows of New York Fashion Week, the Rodarte collection does not disappoint with the spring season. Finding inspiration in nature and redwoods of Northern California, Kate and Laura Mulleavy deliver a showing of 1960s tinged garments with a slew of prints and color blocking. It is important to note, however, that this is a departure from previous collections known for their romantic and sometimes dark roots. Nevertheless, it is once again a successful effort from the two sisters.
