Combine romantic beauty with a ribbon of darkness and you’ve got Los Angeles label Rodarte. With an eye for cinematic storytelling and a strong couture mentality, the brand dreams up conceptual creations that blur the boundaries between fashion and art.
Sisters Laura and Kate Mulleavy launched Rodarte in 2005 with no formal fashion experience. Their fascination for horror movies gave life to feminine, ethereal garments with a sinister twist. Lace and lush brocades beaded with “blood”, draped hoods and black fringe are recurrent elements in the label's collections.
