Rodarte, are the only designers I look really look forward to watching at New York Fashion week, because in amongst the pristine, put together collections that plague the catwalk - all minimalist, and urban - comes the unpredictable. Famed for their amazing use of layering and texture, the Mulleavy sisters, always offer up a collection that gets even the most New York of fashion editors excited.
For Spring/Summer 2012, they took inspiration from Vincent Van Gogh and Sleeping beauty (one of my favourite movies ever), and the end result? a delightful mixture of Disney princess dresses, teamed with sunflower prints, vibrant blues, golden yellows and lime greens. The structure and shape were 100 percent Rodarte, but once again, they pushed themselves to create something a bit 'out there', that would undoubtedly surprise and delight their loyal fan base.
