Rodarte's Spring 2012 runway show certainly gave off a spring-like air. Pastels combined with sensual draping created feminine ensembles that had the grace characteristic of the season. Of course, it wouldn't be Rodarte without a little twist. Light colors were also found on tougher, architecturally structured pieces. Florals with an Eastern vibe added a fairy-tale like quality to many of the looks. Though the collection thus far sounds quite girly, it without a doubt contains darker side. Heavy black eye makeup and dark strappy shoes added an edgy twist.
Overall, the use of color here was spectacular. The color palette was just right and color was able to add to each look without distracting the viewer from the beautiful details of each design. Though the uniting theme of the entire collection was unclear to me, it is certain that the Mulleavy sisters know how to create beautiful garments.
