Vox Humana by Rodarte

December 4, 2008

Okay, by now my love for Rodarte is pretty much solidified. Those sisters can basically do no wrong in my eyes. I want to hang out with them and absorb some of their amazing creativity.

Can we sip tea, while talking about J-horror films and doodling on pads of papers?


Especially after watching this little gem of a movie with Jenny Lewis, owls and Rodarte’s clothes. Let’s not even talk about those amazing tights that are still haunting me. Must. have. them. soon.

Here’s a brief description of the film:

“Rodarte’s interpretation of modern women has taken a darker turn with their A/W 2008 collection, inspired by Japanese horror films, and accordingly, ’Vox Humana’- Latin for ‘Human Voice’ – examines this decidedly sinister side of their design ethos. Featuring one of the sisters’ signature (and suitably distressed) ‘slasher’ dresses in plucked and laddered mohair, a setting straight from their Californian hometown and a melancholy soundtrack sung by their grandmother in the 1940s, Vox Humana is a resolutely personal creation. Nevertheless, as with their painstakingly handwrought creations, it represents a new aesthetic with major global impact.”
