Would you wear it - NYFW SS15 by Rodarte

I am curious - Would you wear it?

Well, besides having fantastic looks for the upcoming style season spring summer 2015 for us, to which I've treated you so far, the fashion weeks have also been a treasure trove for my category "Would you wear it?". Today, we are going to take a look at the SS15 collection of Rodarte (and remember girls, any press is better than no press).

Now, I am obviously not a fashion critic, just a woman with an opinion guided by her personal taste and as such, I am asking your personal taste:

Would you wear it?

Ebbene sì, nonostante dei look splendidi per la stagione moda primavera estate 2015, con i quali vi ho finora coccolati, le settimane della moda erano anche una fonte di ispirazione per la mia categoria "Would you wear it?", nota anche come "Lo metteresti?". Oggi diamo un'occhiata alla collezione SS15 di Rodarte (e ricordatevi ragazze, ogni pubblicità e meglio di niente).

Ovviamente non sono una grande critica di moda, soltanto una donna con opinione guidata dal mio gusto personale, il quale chiede al vostro gusto personale:

"Lo mettereste?"

Neben wirklich ganz tollen Looks fuer die kommende Mode Saison Fruehjahr Sommer 2015, waren die Modewochen auch eine wahre Fundgrube fuer meine Kategorie "Would you wear it", d.h. Wuerdet Ihr es anziehen. Heute wollen wir mal einen Blick auf die SS15 Kollektion von Rodarte werfen (und denkt dran Maedels, jede Presse ist besser als gar keine).

Nun bin ich ja nicht wirklich ein gestandener Fashion Kritiker, nur eine Frau mit Meinung geleitet vom persoenlichem Geschmack, welcher jetzt Euren persoenlichen Geschmack fragt:

Wuerdet Ihr das tragen?

Rodarte aka Kate and Laura Mulleavy

Would they wear it?

My opinion?

Oh sure. As Halloween costume or for similar events it's nice. Or for a funky editoral. But not for my daily wear and 1,000$ (one thousand) and up.
Certo. Come costume per Halloween è anche molto carino. O per un editoral particolare. Ma non per la mia vita quotidiana e 1,000$ e di più.
Sicher doch. Als Halloween oder Fastnachtskostuem waere das ganz nett. Oder fuer ein funky Editoral. Aber nicht fuer mein taegliches Leben und 1.000 $ und noch mehr.

That said, I kind of liked the jackets.

Quote from by Suzie Menkes:

"Il loro problema – o forse il problema dell’industria della moda – 
è che l’emozione che le sorelle Rodarte hanno portato a New York da Los Angeles, 
assieme agli abiti strappati e schizzati di sangue ispirati ai film dell’orrore, 
non può essere mantenuta viva per un’azienda che necessita 
inevitabilmente di generare un profitto." 
(Suzy Menkes su Rodarte, 9 settembre)

By the way, writing this article sparked an interesting discussion about these dresses between my husband and me. And what a good thing it is that we all have different tastes to be expressed by our fashion choices! "Would you wear it" isn't ment to outright bash things, but to do exactly that, spark discussions, inspire to think outside of the box and maybe reconsider things previously thought unwearable.

Ciao! Your turn!
