Prettiest Fall 2022 Rodarte Runway Look 9 Pink Silk Dress w Chiffon Ruffle & Flower Detail

The Fall 2022 Rodarte show as pure magic. Vogies review of the show noted; 'Look at the gentle kiss of snow on the hedges in Kate and Laura Mulleavy’s new fall 2022 imagery, the fallen magnolia leaves, the Leonardian impossible landscape in brooding rose and dust. 'The fantasy of what we want to do and create is the number one driving force,” demurs Kate, but when the Rodarte fantasy intersects so potently with reality as it does here, the designers’ honestness can feel more relevant than ever. The Mulleavys dug deep into their core for this collection. Ballet has been a long time reference for them, the fury of dancers’s fragility and power vibrating in most Rodarte collections.' This was Look 9 in the presentation and sold out around the world. It is just the prettiest little dress. 

The dress combines a bias cut liquid feeling silk that has a touch of sheen to it that evokes the feel of dresses from the thirties and forties with masses of silk chiffon ruffles added for drama. The top of the dress has layers of the pink chiffon and these sit slightly wide on the shoulders. A pretty little flower is attached at the front for a romantic touch. They wrap all the way around the shoulders to give a bit of a cape feel. I love this. The dress skims over the body past the bust, waist and hips and then flares out to the hem. It is very flattering and easy once on the body. The silk hints at the body underneath but the ay that it just drapes over you makes it feel extremely comfortable and easy to wear once on. The bottom hem is anchored with more tiers of those beautiful ruffles. This also gives the dress a touch of weight at the bottom, so it sits and moves beautifully around you when you move. I love the vintage feel that this dress has and it is so very pretty. It appears to have been worn very little if at all. Excellent condition. 

Unlined and closes with a hidden set side zipper. The pin at the front is removable. It appears to have been worn very little if at all. Tagged a modern Rodarte 8.
