New York:  The Mulleavy sisters have carved out a niche for themselves with collection after collection of dreamy-meets-downtown looks, and this season they continued to build on their fantasy world; in this episode Rosie the Riveter goes exploring in the Australian outback.  While the concept may have seemed quirky, the manifestation was altogether wearable, with chunky knit sweaters, work-wear inspired cargo pants and femme circle skirts that would work with anyone’s real life wardrobe.  The tiered floor length gowns, cutout leather sheaths, and statement outwear was where the drama lay, evoking a globe-trotting yet nostalgic look, that was hammered home with soft brushed plaids, rich aboriginal batik prints and a palette combining both rusty earthtones and aged pastels. –Shannon Davenport
