We learn from Grazia via BlackBook that we can look forward to lusting after more Rodarte creations: "Fresh off winning the highly coveted Swiss Textiles Award at the Stella Fashion Night in Zurich yesterday, [designers] Laura and Kate Mulleavy...announced they’re branching out...adding handbags and heels to the line, which is synonymous with whimsical, ultra-feminine, painstakingly handcrafted pieces."
Based on the Pasadena-bred label's collab with Christian Louboutin creating sky-reaching heels, the pub has literal and figurative high expectations: "it’s safe to assume Rodarte handbags and shoes will likewise hit big. Another certainty: penny loafers will most definitely not be in the picture."
