After suffering through 3 hours of school, I managed to leave… I’m going to do this post, then sleep… stupid virus is going around school already.
I’ll start with Rodarte, because DazedDigital has this awesome photo from the begining.
Looks like a scene from a movie, doesn’t it? Something about women ninjas or something? An Amazonian warrior-woman from the Aztecs? Well, that seems to have been the Mulleavy sisters’ inspiration, along with fire – the CA flames and burning all the clothes. The yellowish smoke made for an interesting presentation…
The clothes themselves focus on texture, with lots of colours and patterns combined for an overall effect. The ink drawings on the models’ arms definitely add to the effect too. Most of the looks are fairly… artsy, for lack of a better word. Experimental, maybe? And the vibes range from Samaurai-fierce to edgy goth and everything inbetween. Even the tougher looks offer something in the way of sexiness – partially sheer sections on the dresses and shirts, high hemlines… caging, drapes, long fringes… A combination of fantasy, sci fi, destruction, and power.
Kamila Filipicikova. Sort of shiny rags on this one…
Viktoiya Sasonkina. Definitely leaning towards goth themes here.
Rose Cordero, one of my favourites for this season so far.
Sophie Srej. A goth-y look.
Juana Berga. I love her!
Jules Mordovets. I love her face too!
Frida Gustavsson. Hey, look, a dress!
Iris Strubegger. Iris reminds me of sort of a gothic heron in this look for some reason… idk…
Final thougts: while they might not be particularly wearable (as is – you could probably figure out some way to wear a partially burned, shredded minidress that won’t involve yourself wreathed in eery yellow smoke…), they certainly are thought-provoking and inspirational. That, and they definitely stick out from all the other Spring collections. I liked a lot of the models, too… A success, I think.
