Knits, ThighHighs, & Collages -Oh My!

What do you get when you mix Grisabella from Cats + Edward Scissorhands + Boris Karloff as Frankenstein with a little bit of bondage? You get the masterpiece collection from the The Mulleavys' RODARTE FALL 2009 RTW collection.

While some didn't love the unvarying silhouette (high hem, high boots) I couldn't take my eyes away for the intriguing collection of various collages of textures, knits, and prints.
I can not get over the collection's mix of Balenciaga-like futurism and off-kilter romance that Kate & Laura Mulleavy are known for!
Pale leathers and silk chiffons were printed or silk-screened to resemble veined gray stone, then cut up Edward Scissorhands-style, collaged onto skirts and minidresses—like Frankenstein's skin was pieced together—and worn with insane hip boots by Nicholas Kirkwood.
The intricate attention to detail was absolutely AMAZING!

Also familiar were the knits, but this time composed of a mélange of materials giving a rich voluminous look and feel to the pieces. These were worn with the most salable pieces the sisters have ever shown: ultra mini skirts that enhanced the models silhouette to beautiful, epic proportions.

Drama and intellectual content, along with an otherworldly loveliness, may always be the Rodarte thing and THANK THE GODS for that!

Paired with truly awesome thigh-high leather boots by Nicholas Kirkwood, the look was a bit Barbarella + Frankenstein giving an end result that was AMAZING!

I really love that collection! I loved the looks with all the different gray colors. It was interesting how there was a splash of color in many of the outfits. My favorite is the green skirt near the beginning.
