Forgot to mention this sooner, but here are the links for Rodarte’s official site and New York Fashion, which is where I get all my images from. You can see the complete collections at either of these sites.
A muted palette of white, black, navy blue and pastels in blues, peaches and lilac. A glimpse of their signature deconstructed knitwear and wicked studded shoes. Details like floppy hats, metallics, pleating and sheer layers keep the collection cohesive. Somewhat subdued overall, considering what follows.
A similar palette with an infusion of red, I distinctly remember seeing pieces from this collection in nearly every fashion magazine I picked up at the time. The deconstructed knitwear really shines and is expanded to their spider-web-like tights. (so coveted!) The studded shoe designs are refined and even the sheer, flowy, draped evening gowns seem more polished. You can see the influence of the voluminous skirts from the spring has also transformed away from the pleating and is capturing a dreamier romanticism. A lot of great pieces in this collection.
