Runway Review

Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte are masters at immersing the fashion world into fantasy: often complicated, sometimes confusing, and overall just plain old pretty. Functionality isn't often the aim - this is aspirational high-fashion with restraint left far, far behind. The duo definitely flexed their design prowess for Spring which roamed the picturesque panorama of their creative minds, while converting their artful inspirations into artisanal detailing, charming silhouettes, and surprisingly functional clothing - though admittedly uncanny at times. Just take the beauty look at play as an example: silver rings accenting the models' eyebrows. Rodarte isn't for wimps: being ready to push the envelope is key.

Stovepipe pants are having a moment in the Spring collections and they emerged here from look number one, paired with a ruffle-accented wispy high-neck blouse and thigh-high lace-up sandals: honestly one of the most wearable looks from Rodarte we've ever seen. That devotion to functionality was littered throughout the first half of the lineup - presenting what the brand's loyal fans can wear everyday while bringing on a whole host of new admirers who like their clothes practical with a taste of fanciful flair.

Outerwear was a priority and infused the assortment with utilitarian spirit by way of utility jackets with bomber-style stripe cuff hems, oversized pockets, and sporty chic detailing including ribbed knit and mesh. Sequin embellishment added some romance to the equation while a couple of of band jacket-inspired coats were layered over the collection's fragile, asymmetric hem mini dresses for a hard and soft contrast
