The Curve of Forgotten Things

Elle Fanning starring in Rodarte's new film that highlights design duo Kate and Laura Mulleavy's spring 2011 collection, which drew inspiration from 1970s northern California, referencing Redwood forests, the gold rush and Asian influences.
The collection seems more serious and perfected than the last one. It really captures the 70s vibe at its best. The Mulleavys are truly courageous when it comes to materials. They always use lots of different ones and "mould" them into a somewhat flawless silhouette. The designs are of course a matter of opinion, but the tailoring seems pretty perfected. They obviously know a great deal about materials they work with, and understand them well.

And here's Rodarte's Haute-Tech Astral Projection 2010: A space Odyssey.

Might be a bit strange.
