The Designer: Rodarte
The Venue: Gagosian Gallery in Chelsea.
The Crowd: Anna Dello Russo, Kanye West, Kirsten Dunst, Sofia Coppola, Mario Sorrenti, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Karen Elson, Franca Sozzani, Tabitha Simmons, Tavi Gevison, Anna Wintour and Craig McDean.
The Collection: Kate and Laura Mulleavy took their audience on a Little Rodarte on the Prairie journey, by way of Terence Malick's Days of Heaven. To wit: patchwork coats with diamond cutouts at the waist, sweet lace dresses, appliquéd sweaters and jumpers, lean trousers, polka dot tights and two blood red "Toto, we're not in Kansas, anymore" sequin skirts, all worn with casual side swept hair and gorgeous beaded boots made in collaboration with Nicholas Kirkwood.
The Standout Piece(s): An ankle length boucle coat, wheat print crinkled silk gowns, and a grey day dress with a demure decollatage-framing neckline and not-so-demure slit back.
