Rodarte at Pitti: Pure Couture
I've been so excited to see what Laura & Kate Mulleavy would deliver for their special Pitti collection, and here it is. Inspired by baroque sculptor Giovanni Lorenzo Bernini, in particular the artist's work 'The Ecstasy of Saint Teresa'. Of the ten wonderfully sculptured gowns, the peach number with the golden breast plate forming on the front is the stunning piece I have ever seen from the sisters. The religious connotations in the work are so overwhelming, I can't help but feel a slight reflection of catholic saint Joan of Arc. Well here it is, leave your comments below on what favourite number is.
