Rodarte's Fall 2011 collection brought, yet again, the brilliant texture for which the Mulleavy sisters are renowned. Lush, slouchy sweaters were pulled over transparent flared skirts with baroque gold embroidery. High-collared, long-sleeved dresses featured crystal accents at the cinched waist. And prints, all delicate, were juxtaposed with geometrical, angled shapes.

This season's pieces are highly wearable: high-waisted pants evoked a crisp, Chloé cool, while the high praire-ready frocks are sure to look lovely on starlets like Kirsten Dunst (who sat front row) and Chloë Sevigny. Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte booties seemed to draw on an Americana theme, with beaded crystal patterns clearly inspired by Native American designs.
