In A Fashion Week Far Far Away…

In case this hasn’t popped up on your radar yet:

Rodarte - Runway - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2014

Rodarte’s show was weird, guys. I mean, what the what is going on with these Star Wars dresses? I like Star Wars as much as the next nerdy English major, but there had to be a better way to pay homage to C-3PO’s OG metallics than to slap his mug on a plain maxi.

This is…not good. Let’s set aside the fact that the tops look sort of like a sloppy arts and crafts project. We get to a strange teeny-tiny hip curtain, and then…voila. The disjointed bottom half looks like a novelty shower curtain. Where’s the synthesis? A Star Wars-themed show could have had so much potential. R2D2 and C-3PO alone could have carried the whole thing in terms of design inspiration. How about a print inspired by the Sith lords’ faces? Amidala had cool make-up and hell, even stupid Jar Jar Binks could have contributed something with his ceremonial robes.

Anyway, I don’t normally do runway coverage, but this was too good not to share.
