Rodarte F/W 2010

Patchwork is no longer just for quilts and craft fairs, it’s making its way to your closet this fall. From the heavy knits of Chanel, Rag & Bone, and Yigal Azrouel to the delicate silks of Rodarte, DKNY, and Matthew Williamson, patchwork adds a great amount of visual texture. It may be too overwhelming for really petite or curvacious figures but I love the idea of it. I particularly love Yigal Azroul’s poncho: it looks so cozy and perfect for cold winter. And the Matthew Williamson dress is a stunner!

I’m not sold on some of the accessories, like the decontructed patchwork Chanel bag and the Santoni fur boot. Maybe I’ll try a scarf instead.
