Kate and Laura Mulleavy have been everywhere lately (see: Vogue's article/interview with the sisters about their new healthier lifestyles). The sisters behind Rodarte are causing quite a stir within the fashion industry, and with good reason.
The pieces in their Fall 2008 collection are a dazzling.muted mix of deshevelment and polish; two parts street, one part couture, one part g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s. Everything from the tulle ballerina dresses to the white fishnets was deconstructed. Their clothes are not only new and exciting, they have the ability to make you completely rethink the way you dress: the Mulleavy sisters are sort of like the Arakawa and Gins of the fashion world.
If I had to describe their fall collection in two words? toxic mermaid.
(yes, that's a compliment)
