There were a few shows from NYC last week that were pretty much universally praised and Rodarte was definitely one of them. But, Lance une Mode is coming down with a split decision on this one. While we like it for being a spastic mess of clothes that appear to be in an ever morphing state of decay we do have to admit that all of the pieces are a spastic mess of clothes that appear to be in an ever morphing state of decay. In other words, it’s kind of a glass half full or half empty situation. What we do agree on is that these clothes are hard to wear. You need a sharp attitude and a sharp reason to wear stuff this wild. So, Gwyneth Paltrow et. al., we better not see you sporting one of these things on some red carpet with a prom queen up do and some nude Loubautin pumps and then getting all bleary eyed when you see yourself on the US Weekly worst dressed list, ’cause Rodarte just wore you to an event instead of the other way around.
All weird unjustified cattiness aside, what we’re trying to say is decide if you like this for yourself; be brave, take a stance of your own. Tell us what you think in the comments section.
There’s a video of the show over at The Moment.
