Rodarte, I am shocked you reversed the colours for the seasons. Black for Spring/Summer and White for Fall/Winter? You rebel, you.

That aside, I believe your collection this season have fulfilled many girls’ matrimonial wish to wear Rodarte for their weddings. Good job.

However, this collection is a mish-mash of prints I do not understand. Then again, I’m not a very print person to begin with. Either way, this season’s collection somehow “not quite Rodarte” but at the same time, it is. How do you explain this ironic statement of mine? I don’t know either.

The neutral tones and interesting textures reminds me of this Japanese street brand called h.Naoto. They have a sub-line called Gramm which garments are made up of a mix of different fabrics and prints.

Not a plug, but this is their site, you can go compare it.>>> h.Naoto webstore go look for the line called “Gramm”.

I like how the dresses are wispy and almost fantasy-like. I even like the ghostly pale skin and smokey silver-grey eyeshadow.

Looking at the closeups, Rodarte has incorporated similar details from the dresses to the shoes.

I am a little confused by the embroided organza pants. I like how it is being paired up with the rest of the outfit, but I honestly can’t think of another way they can be coordinated.

Love the wallpaper print on sheer fabric.

Multi-layering of socks and tights make for my favorite shot of the details in this collection.

    I agree I was a little confused at this season’s collection as well. I would have thought Rodarte would come back with something bold again but it seems they have retreated to light wispy garments. Oh and I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who say reference to Gramm!

    I’m so glad someone else knows what Gramm is.
