The fashion force was with Rodarte on Tuesday when the label presented the best collection in the brand's history in a show that was closed by five spectacular finale gowns that payed an intergalactic homage to the Star Wars films.
The luxe brand presented graceful floor sweeping gowns in delicate silks with beloved Star Wars characters Luke Skywalker, Yoda, C-3PO and R2-D2 pressed onto the face of the elegant garments.
"It's so rare that you can use a film still as artwork and have it look like a painting. It's so beautiful," said Rodarte designer, Laura Mulleavy.
The label, which is headed up by Laura and her sister Kate Mulleavy, had the blessing of the film’s creator, George Lucas, to produce the line and the partnership is timed perfectly as the franchise’s next instalment is due this coming December.
While the spacy gowns are not for sale, instead only available for editorial shoots, the rest of the Rodarte collection was exciting enough to satisfy any fashion buyers.
In keeping with the sci-fi theme the collection was a time-warp. A trip down memory lane which teased out the designers early childhood memories of the 80’s wearing smock dresses, high-waisted pants and crochet knits all teamed with eye-catching accessories.
