A Rodarte kind of life

I don't know if any of you are avid followers of the Nowness. I have been reading, watching and being in daily awe since I discovered the website shortly after its launch in February last year. This week, or last Tuesday to be more precise, they published the long anticipated Rodarte short film, 'The Curve of Forgotten Things', directed by Todd Cole and starring Elle Fanning. I am a sucker for the Mulleavy sisters' aesthetic and have become very interested in Elle over the last few months despite not having yet seen 'Somewhere'. I have, however, seen her at plenty of press tour events wearing a fair share of Valentino and not enough although quite memorable SS11 Rodarte. Like this dress, a version of which she dons in the film.

Coincidentally, the release of the Rodarte short film happened on the same week as the Mulleavy's collection for Opening Ceremony hit the online store. This collection, while devised as a kind of diffusion line, is made up by as many well made desirable pieces as their main one. The sandy, beige and golden colour palette with a strong presence of tapestry fabrics is very much in line with what we saw on the runway. The only difference is there are a lot more separates —they do more pants for OC and also more accessories. The sunglasses and the shoes are a favourite of mine. Particularly the low cowboy boots in the oversized paisley material. Check out the whole collection here.
I'm off.
