Rodarte’s comeback to NYFW

Flowers for spring? Groundbreaking. For once, it seems like Miranda Priestly was wrong. Indeed, Rodarte’s comeback to New York fashion week was groundbreaking. After showing for a few seasons at Paris Fashion week, the American brand came back to the nest. This show’s mood was quickly set with an unusual choice of location: The Marble Cemetery in East Village. As rain drizzled on the guests, models walked to the runway under transparent umbrellas giving a somber edge to their colorful outfits.

Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the creative duo behind Rodarte, did what they do best: selling fairy-tales with delicate and distinguished gowns. Rodarte served us the perfect tea party outfits on a platter. Inspired by gardens, roses and the artistic spirits, the designers created what little girls’s dreams are made of. The idea of blossoming was at the center of this collection, the shapes were inspired by Picasso.

Models were seen wearing big flowers in their tangled hair. On some of them, we could see reinterpretations of the wedding veil made of tulle. The makeup look was following the same colorful direction: with fuchsia or mint lids and a classic red lip.

Rodarte came back to NYFW with a bang, creating an explosion of girly-romantic outfits. The duo has nothing left to prove when it comes to talent.
