RETURN TO THE THUNDERDOME
In Rodarte’s post-apocalyptic world, fantastical huntresses stalked the runway with tribal tattooed arms and hair scraped back into a matted mass. Scraps of fabric and strips of leather in earthen colors were molded and twisted into shapes to shield the body. Black-and-white checkered cotton melded with crepe, soft yellow swiss dot, velvet and lace to create winding, intricately draped pieces that fell with astonishing beauty. Adding to the aggressive feeling were woven leather belts with claw-shaped clasps and stacked platforms that echoed the tribal patterns drawn on the models’ arms. Warrior trousers in croc-patterned silk devoré were adorned with multiple zippers. Ropey fringe in contrasting fabrics partially covered a loopy crochet and multi-colored pavé sequined underlayer. Beyond all the eccentricities were wearable pieces that set the standard for the edgy customer.
