Rodarte Tie Dye Beaded Embroidered Silk Gown F/W 2013 Runway

About the Item

Creating beautiful clothes that channel a certain fantastic dreaminess has long been Rodarte’s calling card. Rodarte’s designs are held in permanent collections at world-class museums including The Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Founded by sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy in 2005, Rodarte has been worn by many celebrities and icons including the likes of Tilda Swinton, Rihanna, and Rooney Mara. The sisters notably designed several costumes for the Oscar-winning film Black Swan, and have won many prestigious awards including the Swiss Textiles Award, a CFDA, and a Domani Fashion Award. True to their typical whimsical fashion, the Mulleavy sisters imbued their 2013 Fall/Winter collection with a late 80s nostalgia. Inspired by their hometown of Santa Cruz, California, the collection has a distinct West coast vibe and featured an array of ethereal chiffon dresses, tulle-backed jumpsuits embroidered with angel wings, and acid-wash silks. As seen as look number 26 on that season’s runway, this remarkable tie-dye gown is among the most memorable pieces from the collection. The sleeveless dress begins with a net shoulder strap and a dramatic, angular shawl collar made from black scuba fabric that wraps around the shoulders. The nude mesh bodice is embroidered with crimson roses that are adorned with hand-sewn blue, orange, red, and black crystal beads that double as glittering stamens. Size: 0 fits like a 2 Measurements: Bust: 32 inches Waist: 28 - 30 inches Hips: 34 inches Length: 62 inches The layered sheer silk and chiffon skirt falls from an angular drop waist to a maxi length at the ankles in long, asymmetric flounces that reveal and add volume to the columnar underskirt.

A phenomenal addition to the discerning fashion lover’s wardrobe, this beautiful gown is the perfect choice for a wedding, gala, or special occasion and can easily be styled with strappy heels and statement accessories. This 2013 Rodarte gown is fully lined in beige silk and closes with a concealed back zip. In excellent condition, it has been professionally eco dry cleaned and pressed.

  • Incredible Rare Issey Miyake Pleats Please Avant Garde Color Block Dress
    By Issey Miyake
    Located in Boca Raton, FL
    Futuristic designer Issey Miyake has mastered the technique of creating sculptural works of art in cloth. His innovative pattern cutting and signature use of micro pleating give his garments a unique form. As one of the earliest designers to take on this style of fashion, Miyake is held in high regard as a pioneer of these creative, out-of-this-world fashions. From the Pleats Please line, this rare collector’s dress is done in a pleated fabric in shades of midnight blue, electric purple, red, magenta, cerulean, chartreuse, brown, sage, and neon green. The bright colors have a prismatic quality that makes the dress pop visually, giving the eye something new to appreciate from each angle while elevating this garment to a work of art. The dress begins with a high straight neckline and long sleeves that reach the wrists. The front of the dress is fitted throughout, creating an elegant sheath that falls to a maxi length several inches above the ankles. The body of the dress is done in midnight blue pleats with a section of purple at the bust and a section of neon green near the hem that draws the eye. Thigh-high slits at each side of the dress allow for greater ease of movement while introducing a welcome risqué element that helps balance the volume of material on display. Size: Small Measurements: Bust: 32 inches Waist: 30 inches Length: 50 inches An incredible panel at the back of the dress is made up of a vivid patchwork of color-blocked fabric, adding extra depth and gravitas to this Avant Garde masterpiece. The top of the panel can be folded over the front of the shoulders to create a curving, cocoon-like shawl, or folded together at the back like wings at rest. The panel spans the entire length of the dress and is slightly higher at the neck, adding volume and a delightful sculptural element to the otherwise columnar silhouette of the dress. An unforgettable addition to the discerning fashion lover’s wardrobe, this rare Issey Miyake Pleats Please dress is the perfect choice for a wedding, gala, or special occasion, and is sure to turn heads for many years to come.

  • Missoni Pink Gold Knit Maxi Dress Cardigan Necklace Beret Set, 1970s
    By Missoni
    Located in Boca Raton, FL
    Missoni is defined by its impressionist color stories and signature knit designs. The designs speak to the idea of simplicity with the value always being in the fine details. Done in a silky rayon crochet knit, this 1970s Missoni ensemble is made from gradients of dusty rose, blue-grey, pale yellow, and gold to create an overall warm, beachy feeling dress set. The cardigan drapes from a rounded neckline into elbow length sleeves. The undulating drape compliments the wave-like ribs in the fabric. A rather boxy silhouette, the softness of the drape and the movement of the colors give it a lighter feel. Underneath, the dress showcases a more textured, horizontal knit design that adds dimension and movement to the ensemble. The dress hugs the figure from the torso through the hips and from a dropped waistline falls into a straight maxi skirt. The fun doesn’t stop there. This ensemble also features a matching beret done in the same wavy knit style as the dress bodice and necklace made from a rope of the fabric threaded through circular carnelian beads. A picturesque sunset wrapped neatly in a matching ensemble...
