Holidays are quickly approaching, but the world of capital-F Fashion never stops spinning, surprising us every day with newest, hottest, latest...
For years now I've been tremendously obsessed with Rodarte brand, as their innovation in textiles and modernism in silhouettes stirred my deepest creative emotions and inspired into birth of my own clothing pieces.
I just found out (and thought I should immediately share it with you all :)) Rodarte is showing their Fra Angelico Collection in Los Angeles LACMA museum, "featuring a group of extraordinary gowns. The collection is inspired by Italian art, specifically the Renaissance frescoes in the monastery of San Marco by Fra Angelico in Florence, Italy, as well as the Baroque sculpture. Rodarte’s signature dressmaking techniques and sculptural details can be seen in each of the gowns. They are customized utilizing a variety of materials such as feathers, SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS, sequins, and custom-made silk flowers. Hand-forged gold metallic accessories such as a headpiece, breastplate, and belts dramatically complete the look of several key gowns."
