Spring 11

The look The spring 11 range from Rodarte was inspired by northern California and its redwood forests, including prints that resembled the bark from trees, and leaf embroidery.

Key pieces The 1970s influenced shapes in the form of cocoon skirts and trousers, while waists were high and defined. Skirts were layered and slashed, evocative of wood chippings. Porcelain-print dresses moved away from the nature influence and sleeveless dresses had peplum-overlaid skirts and ornate embroidery.

Colours An autumn palette with an array of woodchip brown shades and taupe contrasted with blue and white porcelain shades and metallic golds.

Commercial appeal Rodarte is not known for its commerciality, but this spring 11 collection could be a turning point, as many of the wood and porcelain prints and layered skirts had a popular appeal.
