Rodarte, with its balance of high-concept artistry and plain-old covetability, has become a can't-miss show. And the Mulleavys' latest collection — an eclectic, sexy mix of structure, romance and contrast — was no exception.

The Mulleavy sisters cited Redwood forests as an inspiration. In some cases this was taken literally, as in the whimsical wood-grain prints.

Elsewhere, structure contrasted with unexpected glimpses of skin, or with flowing lines.

Sometimes the balance was flipped, making the emphasis on softness, with structure as a counterpoint.

Not to go all Rachel Zoe on you, but the plaids and trousers had us reaching for the superlatives.

Stunning, one of the most imaginative collections yet...it seems obvious now that tree-print and high fashion would be a lovely, interesting combination, but I've never seen it done before. What could have come off as kitschy instead appeared very sleek. I would love to see the mass-market translation of these ideas.

(Off course, I am super into tree-imagery. I also would LOVE a coat with some of these prints...especially 2 and 8!)
