Rodarte Fall 2014


Kate and Laura Mulleavy took a trip down memory lane in pursuit of inspiration for their fall 2014 collection. Rodarte this season was compiled of nostalgic memories from the Mulleavy sisters’ youth. “Things that you would imagine you want to wear when you were younger, or even just our understanding of the time period we grew up in,” explains Laura. Born in the late seventies early eighties, the garments touched on the last disco days revealing chiffon dresses, and sparkles at the center stage of almost every ensemble. The styles were far too dated for my liking. It felt like a long episode of ‘That ’70s Show’. Nostalgia, having been the sisters’ theme could have been glazed over and maybe not such a literal production of the era. However, their Star Wars gowns were an interesting addition.
