Rodarte Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – New York Fashion Week

Ah, the scent of spring gets the creative juices flowing to no end. Of course, when it comes to Rodarte that creative mind is never at rest, but it appears that the brand does so much better when the warmer seasons are at hand. It appears that the summer months have offered ample time to read up on the classics and that has essentially ensured that we are presented with the Rodarte spring/summer 2016 line of incredibly thought out pieces that are sure to astound even the least fashion friendly of individuals. So long as you love your history, of course! Lo and behold, it was the works of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Emily Dickinson, and Leonard Cohen that inspired such a lovely composition of guipure and lace. Electric Light Orchestra added to the classics can certainly be the culprit here in bringing to us simple individuals such a lovely rendition of the gothic favourites we all had at one point or another. With 36 outfits in our wake, shimmering fabrics and such elegance to behold, it is a wonder we did not just steal one of those furs and pantyhose and run!

Have we mentioned that we love silver ankle strapped shoes against black pantyhose? Now add shimmering loose fabrics in a light golden sheen mixed in with black lace to create the divine dress worn over this concoction and add a black and white shearling coat to the mix while ensuring your neck is wrapped in black and white. It is quite the combination, is it not? Kate and Laura Mulleavy are talented to say the least, with a whole lot of details added to each and every piece. There is no way we can even find a speck of simplicity here as the girls have brought to us a collection very much worth the review. Romantic interpretations aside, we are in love with the Mongolian shrugs and peasant dresses, the velvet blouson sleeves and the lace skirts going around. We are greatly enjoying the ‘70s and ‘80s feels we get from the line-up before us, knowing that the New York Fashion Week has only gained from the Rodarte love for the creative and the exquisite.

The homespun vintage might not be for everyone, but there are those out there who greatly enjoy what the Mulleavy artists have to offer. We still see the plunging necklines, as well as the keyhole slits, while the trend of transparency speaks loud and clear to us through the ladies sashaying down that catwalk in lace, tulle, guipure, and shimmering designs. There is even a red carpet dress or two, the enchanting black and white lace gown with cascade shoulders doing much to regain Rodarte’s audience’s interest in the designs the ladies have to offer. The pieces are beyond beautiful and it would take a blind person not to appreciate the Victorian approach to a sweet spring and summer set that cannot but beguile even the most fashion dulled of senses.
