Van Gogh Shows Up at Rodarte

September 15, 2011 § 1 Comment

Looks from Rodarte S/S 12

I didn’t need show notes or reviews to figure out that the inspiration for Rodarte’s latest collection was Vincent Van Gogh. They covered their first number, a knee-length dress with cap sleeves, in painterly sunflowers reminiscent of Van Gogh’s “Sunflower” series from 1888, while a later number carried the dramatic royal blue and violet swirls of his magnum opus “The Starry Night” (1889). I’m a huge Rodarte fan – I particularly loved their F/W 11 collection based on the American Plains – but their latest collection stuck too closely to its inspiration for me.
