Rodarte’s F/W 2012 collection was a major blast from the past. Silhouettes, colors, and even fabrication felt so retro, at moments it was too much nostalgia for me to stomach. Make-up was very questionable, I did not see the appeal or charm in orange faces that looked like they had overdosed on the spray tanner, but I could have missed something. I personally found solace in the outerwear and tailored suiting. The shearlings and leather dresses were the major show-stoppers, they did a great job at bridging into a more commercial offering.
