New York City Fashion Week: Rodarte

by goingvogueonline

Rodarte’s Summer 2012 collection is fun, flirty, and fabulous! I love the enlarged prints and rich indigo blue, bright aqua, and marigold yellow hues. The starry nights and sunflower themed creations make it evident that Rodarte drew inspiration from Vincent Van Gough this season. There is no doubt that we will be seeing these pieces on celebrities and fashionistas in the next couple of months. The show attracted a vast crowd of celebrities including, Elle and Dakota Fanning, Taylor Swift, Beyonce, and Vogue editor, Anna Wintour.

Van Gogh’s brushstrokes infused pretty much everything we did,” Laura said after the show. “Our color palette, the embroidery, the designs. Every decision we made, we asked: Could this be part of a van Gogh painting?” – Laura Mulleavy, Co-Founder of Rodarte

Laura and her sister Kate, the founders of Rodarte, definitely succeeded in creating a cohesive collection inspired by Van Gough. I would love to hear your thoughts on their new designs – especially their take on the summer pant suit!
