Janis and Bees. Rodarte SS17


Bees and Janis Joplin. Mostly nothing in common. But Laura and Kate Mulleavy found a connection between genus Apis, and the magical character of a 70s icon. In case of the former, Rodarte played with tulle and lace to form honeycomb-like layers. The safety pins lined up along pants weren’t about grunge and punk, but rather an association of bees’ stings. A heavily ornamented, beehive shaped bustier on a closing gown looked as sweet as honey. Flowers are essential for bees – that’s why floral motif appears countless times in this collection. In case of Joplin, her care-free attitude oozes in those jaw-dropping, fringed biker jackets and hippie, ruffled dresses. In the world of Rodarte, it’s a fantasy story-telling combined with truly beautiful clothes.







Would love to hear what you think!
