Spring 2009: Rodarte | Haute Macabre

Spring 2009: Rodarte

Happy New Year, my fashionista friends! It’s 2009, which means it’s time we focused on looking to the year ahead. The next week here at Haute Macabre we’ll be taking a look at the spring ready-to-weart collections for 2009. Spring collections are always significantly more challenging than Fall/Winter collections, as for some reason many designers feel that spring is a time to wear tangerine and chartreuse. But we’ll do our best to vet the collections and bring you our picks for warmer weather.

First up for me, Rodarte’s spring 2009 collection, full of classic fishnet and sheer fabrics, hints of fetish, and some interesting deconstruction:

Knock it off: Black Lame Bandeau Top, eBay, $3.88, Diamond Net or Fence Net fishnets, Sock Dreams, $9.00-$21.00, Fingerless Leather Biker Gloves, Holbrook Davis, $20.00, Satin Pleated Miniskirt, Amazon, $19.99,
