Rodarte - New York Fall 2090
(NEW YORK) The Mulleavy sisters are more often than not a highlight of the week. This season, they did not disappoint their loyal following of editors and front row celebs including Kirsten Dunst and Elijah Wood (both "friends"). The collection was focused on marbling, and backstage, large swaths of the raw marbled fabric hung near the runway's entrance. As usual, there were strong leather jackets and incredible knitwear--this season more maximal than the last. For footwear, their collaboration with Nicholas Kirkwood brought hip-high strappy boots complimented by a number of minidresses that were--dare we say--wearable.
