Ooh, Snap: Did Target Copy Itself?

Up top there, a belt (a kind of ugly one at that) from the Rodarte Target collection. Down below, a Sonia Kashuk duffle bag, also manufactured by Target. Hmm … those two look pretty gosh-darn similar in terms of material. Remarked the Racked reporter, who posted the pics, the Kashuk bag “in terms of how…

Rodarte For Target Already Mostly Sold Out Online

The much-hyped Rodarte for Target collection finally launched — and sold out — yesterday. By mid-day, almost every style was gone online, the good ones having disappeared in the wee hours of the morning. People were already marking up and selling Rodarte for Target pieces on eBay yesterday morning! Doesn’t that seem a little unfair…

Check Out Tavi’s Rodarte For Target Video

Style blogging wunderkind Tavi just released a fairly adorable and kind of intense video she made to “introduce you to Rodarte.” The video looks at the brand as a whole, the upcoming Target line (including a yellow knit sweater she loves), and even has a little Jason Schwartzman action going on. All in all,…

And now for another round of “Who Buys This Crap?” … next up, these Rodarte charm necklaces available at Barneys. They start at $1,750 and go as high as $2,500. We get it: The Mulleavy sisters are hot hot hot right now. But come on. Why are these so pricey? No clue, and the descriptio…

Sneak Preview: Rodarte for Target!

No, these are not Halloween costumes. They’re actually pieces from the upcoming and greatly anticipated Rodarte line for Target.

Yes, images are finally leaking of the new line, which editors have already previewed, but were banned from sharing with their readers.

Along with the sequined skull dress (far right), the ultra “it”…

Wacky Shoes Abound!

Crazy shoes. They’re all the rage! Last week, we admired Rodarte’s urban glamazon heels that could have been made from leftover parts found at the local mechanic’s. Yesterday in Milan, Miuccia Prada debuted a series of Lucite and plastic chandelier shoes with a rainbow of heel colors and swinging crystals. Equipped with what looks to…

Nicholas Kirkwood’s Amazing Futuristic Heels For Rodarte

Check out these uh-may-zing heels by Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte’s spring 2010 collection. This season the Mulleavy sisters were inspired by Death Valley — the clothes have a “Mad Max”-meets-“Blade Runner,” neo-primitive, apocalyptic look. To match the urban guerrilla theme, Kirkwood, who’s known for his over-the-top footwear, created these Hermes-esque-leather-and-metal-spike-studded stilettos. The heel appears to…

But Can You Walk In Them?

Talk about a test-drive. Recent fashion seasons have seen some of the highest heels on record, from Nina Ricci’s heel-less high-heels to Rodarte’s towering Frankenstein boots. They may be beautiful, but can real women walk to work in the seven-inch stilettos that sent some supermodels spilling on the runways? The ladies at New York’…

OMFG: Rodarte To Design For Target

Rodarte is designing a line for Target’s Go International project, allowing us to die happy after purchasing, well, everything the day it’s available on December 20. Because, really, what else is there to live for once you’ve filled your closet with Rodarte for $60 instead of $4,000? We’d sort of resigned ourselves to the idea…

Long Skirts My Ass: Rodarte Wins CFDA Award

Nary a day goes by lately without another store closing, one more report of plummeting sales figures and a bright glint of hope that Crocs may finally go under due to massive losses. Some economists and fashion analysts are even saying that these tough times have resulted in Depression-era style having a resurgence (not always

Are Plus-Sized Woman Finally Acceptable Fashion Icons?

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is not known for loving larger women. In fact, she even got Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy to see a trainer and go on a diet for a story in the magazine’s April 2008 issue. But it seems as though Wintour is changing her tune. The British, Grammy-nominated singer Adele

One to Know: Shoe Designer Nicholas Kirkwood

You already know Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin, and Manolo Blahnik. The names practically speak for themselves. These three shoe designers are the top of the line and as popular as ever. Enter my newest obsession: Nicholas Kirkwood. His shoes simply make me swoon. They remind me of superheroes and villains. Actually, I’m pretty sure if…
