Runway Recap: Rodarte S/S 09

Some people have criticized Kate and Laura Mulleavy for recycling old looks. Admittedly, this collection was largely a continuation from the two previous seasons, but I prefer to see them each as an installment in the Rodarte trilogy of beauty thriving in a harsh, post-apocalyptic world. The three finale dresses, worn by Kasia, Karlie and Jourdan, looked almost like they were painted on with big wide brushstrokes awash with bold splashes of color. This is a pair that knows how to balance charming aesthetics with unique construction.
