Rodarte’s Kate and Laura Mulleavy are the queens of bridging the fashion/fantasy gap, translating magical themes into wearable works of art. Case in point: while their spring/summer 2013 collection delves into imaginative medieval and fantasy lands, the results are undoubtedly sophisticated. Scalloped chains toughen up delicate lace, while fluid lines soften armor-like construction. Although the inimitable design duo explores an ancient narrative, the fashion story they tell is undoubtedly new.
