Rodarte Enlists Musicians & Actresses for Fall 2018


Rodarte used Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth), Grimes, Kirsten Dunst and other non models to showcase their Fall 2018 collection.

Los Angeles based fashion label Rodarte is the brainchild of sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy. For the Fall 2018 collection the designer duo skipped the runway in favor of a portrait portfolio starring female musicians and actresses. The new collection is modeled by Kim Gordon from Sonic Youth, Grimes, a very pregnant Kirsten Dunst, Reese Witherspoon’s daughter Ava Phillippe and many more.

The Fall 2018 collection is less casual than their former looks. Photography for the portrait portfolio was done by Autumn de Wilde, and styling was by Shirley Kurata and Ashley Furnival.
