“This is the most Rodarte show we have ever made,” claimed one of the Mulleavy sisters at the end of their Paris début. Certainly, the dreamy staging, at a French garden enriched with off-kilter installations of English roses, chimed perfectly with the creative duo’s poetic image, and the collection included sheer tulle dresses and blouses embellished in various ways: pearls and beads, ostrich feathers, polka dots and flounces and ruffles all created a contrast when teamed with pieces in biker leather. Puckered, asymmetric skirts were worn with leather boots and ankle boots, while long chiffon dresses were decorated with vivid floral prints. All the looks, and even the hair, featured clouds of Gypsophila, commonly known as ‘baby’s breath’, with its little white flowers on long stems used mainly in bridal bouquets.
