New York Fashion Week: Rodarte Fall 2009 Collection

0 Comments 19 February 2009

The Mulleavy sisters are more often than not a highlight of the week. This season, they did not disappoint their loyal following of editors and front row celebs including Kirsten Dunst and Elijah Wood (both “friends”). But I am really enjoying this very ‘futuristic’ slash ‘Blade Runner’ edge that we are seeing at this collection. I am not too sure what is inspiring designers these days. But we are for sure finally seeing us going technotronic in our clothing. With high heel leather boots that straddle up the thigh, to amazing graphic designs on the very sleek dresses. I don’t know about you, but we are for sure entering into what the ‘Mayans’ called the fifth sun cycle of 2012? Or finally our entry into space travel? Well my Aquarius mind is going array with me! I always knew I was way ahead of my time. But it looks like I am not the only one. But back to the fashion – the collection featured strong leather jackets and incredible knitwear – this season more maximal than the last. And back to those ‘thigh high boots’ – their collaboration with shoe designer Nicholas Kirkwood brought their hip-high strappy boots to complement our ‘star treking’ days ahead. Which I dare to say – will be quite wearable as 2009 spins into fall fashion.
