In past seasons, Rodarte had shoe designer Nicholas Kirkwood design some interesting footwear (think melting wax heels from the fall 2010 Kirkwood for Rodarte collection). So, I was anticipating something different and was not disappointed with the Spring/Summer 2011 Rodarte collection.
Rodarte designer Laura promised “every shade of brown you can imagine, seventies suburbia, wood paneling, gold, off colors like chartreuse—basically, a combination of all the things that represent the area [our childhoold backyard] to us” and this was evident in the hand-carved, sculpted platforms and heels that perfectly complimented the outfits. I wonder how long each of these heels took to shape. They are truly works of art.
