Rodarte The Collection Fall'10

Kate and Laura's lovely collection. Heritage is the word of the season, used randomly to indicate something unique, something special and always hauntingly expensive. It's about as meaningful as throwing the word couture at an expensive designer collection. That confluence of hyperbole is simply Hello Glengarry Glen Ross. It's not true and it's not acceptable, in the same way that cologne is not perfume and cannot be dabbed behind your ears, at your throat. The things that the Mulleavy sisters create and coax into life, from visions and dreams and imagination, are Heritage, collectible, take your breath away pieces that could go straight from their Pasadena, California workrooms to the Victoria & Albert. Elaborate, eloquent, embellished, exquisite - more "e" words than the rest of the New York Fashion Week designers. This is what fashion is. This is what Heritage is.
