Rodarte Spring '18 Couture Review

On July 2nd, 2017, Rodarte premiered its first couture collection for Spring 2018 in Paris, France.

The designers behind the brand - Kate and Laura Mulleavy - had created such an ethereal aesthetic for their couture, that it made me feel so extremely ordinary in my own clothes. Real florals accentuated every look - think flower crowns, floral cuffs, floral bracelets, floral rings... and you get the picture. As florals for Spring can be somewhat predictable (think Miranda Priestly), Laura and Kate had done it in such a way that it made the looks feel otherworldly and personally to me, back in time to a Jane Austen / Regency Era. The show mainly consisted of dresses - delicate and flowy fabrics and lacy textures, all dominated by soft florals.

Not only was every look simply divine, but it was arranged in such a manner that it became sort of challenging to focus solely on the clothing. However, the Parisenne setting set the stage for a romantic show in the garden and I could not have asked for a more beautiful setting. 

It can be easily said:

🖇  Our daily items are missing the beauty and humbleness from nature which authentic florals certainly help to bring.
