Rodarte Spring/Summer 2014 RTW – New York Fashion Week

The Rodarte spring/summer 2014 collection showcased at New York Fashion Week was a real “surprise”, as the designer sisters, Kate and Laura Mulleavy wanted it to be. Actually, they rejected to run a preshow backstage and kept the frow guests and everyone else waiting impatiently to see the new season creations of the fashion house. There were, actually, pretty surprising style solutions delivered by Rodarte for the new season, some of which were even regarded as a bit disappointing by some fashionisers.

What inspired the sisters to create all those asymmetric leather skirts with fringes hanging out from the hems, the high-waisted shorts with peplum hems, the zebra-printed bustier tops and the leather vests? “We wanted to do a collection based on Los Angeles, and that’s what came out, basically,” explained Laura. “In a weird way, it’s hard for us to explain the collection because we live [in L.A.],” added Kate.
The Rodarte spring/summer 2014 collection consisted of many unexpected details and styles, including the heavy ruffles used on the bustier tops, the bold animal prints, the fringes hanging out from the weird-looking skirts and tops. The line also brought creative ensembles, like the black dress with transparency inserts, featuring a big scorpion embroidered on the front part. The stylish blazers and angora sweaters are definitely the most wearable pieces in this collection.
Overall, blacks and whites were the main colors at Rodarte, but there were also a handful of bold animal prints, dots, stripes and checkered patterns. As for the accessory choices, the Rodarte spring/summer 2014 collection brought massive studded belts, necklaces and baseball caps, as well as versatile slippers and shoes.

The Rodarte spring/summer 2014 collection is definitely the first ever line from the designer sisters that diverges away from their beautiful interpretation of romance and femininity and tries to bring harsher things to fashion. What we have to ask the sisters is to go back to their roots!
