Rodarte’s Paris Haute Couture Week Debut Was Breathtaking

There’s no such thing as too many ruffles (or even flower crowns) at Rodarte’s latest Spring 2018 collection. Set in Paris’s Cloître Port Royal gardens, Kate and Laura Mulleavy–the American designers behind the brand–made their highly-anticipated Paris Haute Couture Week debut, after conquering New York City. The Collection  The stylish duo grounded the entire line to their trademark romantic silhouettes, while adding new punchiness to the equation–we’re talking about polka dots, bright prints, and delicate white flowers (also known as baby’s breath). The result was breathtaking. It wasn’t only ultra-feminine nor whimsical, in every sense of the word, but it had an unexpected edge too. Rodarte’s muses channeled their inner bad gal in studded leather jackets and low-rise leather pants, which were sweetened with bow belts–proving that the brand doesn’t only cater to the whimsical-obsessed lady.
The Romantic Accessory  Fit for the garden-themed venue, the models had an extra-ethereal touch with tiny bouquets of baby’s breath all pinned to their hair, or wrapped around their shoulders like a delicate shawl. We’re taking it as cues that the Pinterest-worthy flower crowns won’t only be worn as a hair accessory soon (we can already imagine a modern-day bride pulling off this look).
