Rodarte Spring Summer 11/12


What have those painting by Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh to do with Rodarte? Well, a lot this season. They are a recurring theme in Rodarte’s showing. Even I whose art knowledge is seriously lacking could see the connection to van Gogh’s perhaps most famous work Starry Night.


See those swirls on dress no. 2? Yep, that’s Starry Night. The show as a whole reminds me of fairy tales, no. 2 could be suitable for a midnight fairy. Love the draping on no. 1, by the way. No. 3 somehow strikes me as quite princess-like, maybe it’s the shoulder detail? And no. 4 is the most wearable piece, not in a bad way. I would definitely wear this.
