Some More Spring Collections
California is always a major part of the Rodarte look, but this time, the journey was so literal, one could just about smell the fresh scent of a redwood forest. With that, Califronia love came in cleaner, more simple separates such as paneled high-waisted pants and little jackets that settled just off the shoulder. This is a step in the right direction for Rodarte. As much as I love the romantic/goth knits that they usually do, I enjoy them directing that in a more focused, crisp line. The colors of this collection were earthy and I especially loved the light, sage greens paired with wood paneling colorblocks that resembled 1970's suburbia. Also, the shoes with Chinese detailing screamed San Francisco's Chinatown - a unqiue hub that was captured in the most wonderful wedge. Oh, and one more thing, nymph/fairy vibes galore. I loved the magic that they could put into 1970's wood paneling by making it more of a let's-go-back-to-nature-and-find-the-fairies thing. Being from and living in California, this collection spoke directly to our home, and all the inspirations were bold and familiar.
