“Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking.” – Miranda Priestly (The Devil Wears Prada 2006)
But this is florals for winter, it’s definitely rebellious, if not groundbreaking. And sheer white leggings and dresses, all weighed down of course by heavy yarn collages and sheepskin jackets. Oh set aside whatever inspired this ethereal collection (sleepwalking), the bravery to bring out SS fabrics onto an AW runway, and making it work so agreeably, is so admirable. They all say this collection lacked the usual badass factor of Rodarte, but in my opinion this rebellion is their best form of badass yet.
Black? For Winter? Groundbreaking, I’d like to just say.
