Rodarte Runway Beaded Metal Net SeaFoam Lame Swarovski Crystals Dress, 2015


Frequently inspired by the ebbs and tides of nature, Rodarte merges quality materials and techniques into creations that reflect a natural rawness. The Spring 2015 collection drew inspiration from aquatic themes crafting allusions to waves, tendrils, nets, and undersea plant life, shaping them into gowns that gave an eerily soothing mood. This dress is not only beautifully designed but was a Moda Operandi exclusive originally retailing for $11,270. Featuring a variety of textures envelops a seafoam lame organza, a soft mermaid-like glimmer is created. On either side, a hand-crocheted metal net—one of white and gold the other of black—embellished with Swarovski crystals drape in conversation with the iridescence of the undulating organza that sweeps dynamically across the body in an epic tale. Beginning from the waist, the dress bubbles up into a sheer neckline swirling and rolling with clusters of tiny white beads reminiscent of a lush foam. The asymmetry of the main dress fabric implies motion, reaching towards a delicate crescendo of a wave. An asymmetric, rounded hem solidifies the look. Metal net and organza tentacles hang from the hip as low as the ankle creating a breezy motion when the wearer walks. Crashing waves, sirens, and a beautifully treacherous scenery, this Rodarte dress is a wearable odyssey that is waiting to be experienced. Size estimate: XS/S Measurements: Bust: 30 - 32 inches Waist: 24 inches Hips: 34 inches Length: 57 inches to the longest point More is more with the alluring Rodarte dress. Carefully balancing the rounded lines of the neck and hem with the diagonals of the seams and the lattice geometry, this dress fits softly around the body with slight fit in the hips and waist. The torso of the dress in lined in a similar green with indications of the hand beadwork being visible from the interior. It closes at the side with an invisible zip and is in excellent condition. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
