Rodarte Spring 2013 New York Collections

Okay let’s go with the 3 H’s …. Hideous, Heinous and Horrific!  On what planet are these clothes appealing on any level?   Granted, they may be engineering feats and wonders of craftsmanship but on any esthetic level, something as simple as graceful or appealing … NOT!

It is not a secret that I have never been a fan but how can it be that these clothes just get uglier and uglier and still the press infuses all this blah blah blah as if to justify the collection.  What complicates the issue is that then the stores buy the stuff and think they can sell it.  Gowns that are in excess of 10 grand usually require the most basic esthetic... pretty and there is nothing here that fits that bill.

When the designing sisters came upon scene they were lauded for their sweaters and now for some unknown reason, they are considered designers.  The clothes reek of fashion school projects and absurd misconceptions about this business and one might assume about how women wish to look.

Here are a few more words that might describe the collection … over worked, awkward, clumsy, Prada-ish, Marni-ish and oh yeah this one...wildly extravagantly expensive.  I could go on, but why bother, you already get the picture and if you don’t believe me, then have a look at the slideshow!
