The Rodarte fall 2013 collection was inspired by the town the designer sisters grew up in, Santa Cruz. There were so many different sources of inspiration at New York Fashion Week this year and the result was an outstanding kaleidoscope of prints, patterns, hues and shapes. So, we really had the chance to discover a fabulous sartorial diversity. “Back home to Santa Cruz,” Laura Mulleavy said after the Rodarte show. Also speaking about their latest collection, her sister Kate explained that, “We always knew we’d do a collection about where we grew up.”

The Rodarte fall 2013 collection is based on the town Kate and Laura Mulleavy grew up in, Santa Cruz. “We wanted to capture our memories of Santa Cruz. It’s a very personal collection,” Kate confessed backstage. The line features trench coats, blazers, sheer tulle jumpsuits with angel wing embroideries on the backs, crystal-embroidered macrame sweaters, knit skirt combos, cropped woven pants, oversized white leather biker jackets, chiffon tops, and satin dresses.
