L.A. Pride at Rodarte

Born and raised in California, Rodarte* sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy cite Los Angeles as the impetus behind their spring 2014 collection, leaving the specifics open to interpretation. So we’ll draw our own conclusions about Tuesday’s mix of bad-girl decadence and Latin panache. Models navigated a laser-light runway wearing plaid button-ups, hip-slung belts and tiny cut-offs with zebra-print ruffles, ready for the club or a country-western bar. Our favorite details appeared in long, white and black fringe whipping across asymmetric leather skirts and embroidered scorpions snaking across sheer-paneled tops—an eerie tribute to the City of Angels.
