Some things just have to be seen in person to be believed and appreciated, and the incredibly intricate and textured work of Rodarte definitely falls under that category. On display in one of my favorite spots in the city, The Cooper Hewitt, the exhibit Quicktake: Rodarte consists of selected pieces from their recent seasons and each offers another reason to gasp and fawn. The tooled leather, the hidden gems, the dip dyed silk, the knitted tights, the claw belt clasps… sigh.
The only complaint is that they weren’t joking when they called it a “quick take”. There are only three sections of clothes, with about six on display each. I want more, more, more!!
