Hint Tip: Rodarte
Rodarte’s Kate and Laura Mulleavy showed their latest collection this afternoon, with early buzz suggesting the sisters had scored yet again. In anticipation of Thursday’s Rodarte: Quicktake opening party at the Cooper-Hewitt, here’s a run-down of what to expect from the installation itself, on view now. Comprised of 17 runway looks (and killer custom heels from Nicholas Kirkwood and Christian Louboutin), the mini-show culls primarily from the designers’ spring and fall 2009 collections. Three color-coordinated sets—creamy peach, gray, black—are set against backdrops made to look charred. The duo’s multi-hued Grecian gown (seen here) and black lace, leather and macramé ensembles are sure to tear you away from the mini-quiche and chardonnay in plastic cups.
