Dream Date: Rodarte
Posted by Leigh at 6:39:00 PM
I could wax long and poetic about Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the sisters behind Rodarte, but I've just had a large piece of Julia's birthday ice cream cake, and the sugar is making me a bit bonkers. So, in brief: 1. I love that Rodarte is run by siblings. 2. I love that Rodarte is run by siblings who fuel their rockets with childhood secrets and obsessions, memories as thick and gnarled as their cobweb knit stockings. 3. I ate too much Carvel ice cream cake, a madeleine of childhood, and unlike the Mulleavy sisters who turn their madeleines into gold, I have turned mine into a rambling blog post.
