Rodarte

Autumn 12

Rodarte impressed buyers and fans alike with a collection that could walk straight off the catwalk and effortlessly into stores. Softly structured shoulders looked modern when used on outerwear and dresses, at times appearing almost sci-fi with built-up shoulders on tailored coats. Perhaps the presence of Star Wars’ George Lucas on the front row nodded to a future costume collaboration? Print played a key role with abstract and distorted florals sitting alongside aboriginal designs and human hand prints on silk chiffon. High necklines were either collarless or with a severe starched collar while colour focused on rusty oranges and tobacco shades complemented by neutrals on chunky 3D knits.

The combination of leather and shearling looked a little dated, but this did not detract from a cohesive collection full of individually desirable pieces.
