• Rodarte • A/W 14 •

Laura and Kate Mulleavy's past two collections have unfortunately been lackluster. I hate to say it sometimes but honesty actually is the best policy. The duo were among my favourite designers for a while but after the past two collections I had to reconsider that. I was also expecting a poor show again on Tuesday afternoon. They proved me wrong. I loved every piece.

The California girls took inspiration from science fiction films and their childhood (and how they remembered things i.e. colours). Yoda, C3PO and Luke Skywalker were all emblazoned on the finale gowns. There was also a fabulous gown representing the colossal Death Star. I had to do some homework on the pictures as I'm shamefully not a fan of the $4045 million dollar worldwide grossing franchise.

I loved how there was an element to the show of the stylishly geeky fangirl. Dressed in thick framed glasses, berets, gloves and jackets; the sisters managed to perfect geek chic. Bronze, blue, rust and other rich colours were used. Metallic orange and purple also featured.

My favourite look of the collectionw as 30. The model looked resplendent as she glided around the floor installation. A grey off the shoulder evening gown with petal details, a sequin and black opaque skirt with floral embroideries.

Laura and Kate have restored my faith and presented funky clothing coincidedly.
