NYFW Spring 2012 - Rodarte

Oh My Gawd!!!

As you know, Fashion Week kicked off last week (with Fashion's Night Out).

Every season, I always hold my breath for two shows.  Rodarte and Twinkle by Wenlan.

Rodarte went on Tuesday (Sept. 13th) and as usual, it did not disappoint. 

It was brilliant and beautiful!

For Spring 2012, the Mulleavy sisters were inspired by Van Gogh's works, two in particular.

We'll get these knit sweaters out of the way.

These are beautiful and we love them!

(kidding... they're great.  See the contrast in fabrics - knit and sheer. Beautiful.) 

OK... Now on to the Art!

Gorgeous flowy dresses inspired by Van Gogh's The Starry Night.

Beautiful prints.
Again, the constant running theme I see in the Mulleavy's works are juxtapositions of contrasts.
Soft fabrics with tough textures.

In this case, dark brooding colors on light flowy fabric.

This dress must have as much texture to the fabric as this painting has texture on its canvas.

If you've seen Van Gogh's works up close and personal, then you see how brilliant these next set of dresses are.

The lines in this green skirt are exactly like the textured lines in Van Gogh's works (like his Self Portrait, above).

Thick wavy lines of paint give movement to his works.

The rouching in these dresses give movement to the clothes.

Love these deep midnight blue/indigo purples.

This dress looks like a dark midnight sky.

Love those lines!

No comparison for this dress... I just like it and it's totally something I'd wear:


Bravo! Mulleavy Sisters!  You're awesome!
