In the latest issue of Wilder Quarterly the Rodarte sisters reveal how California's landscape continues to shape their collections. Starting with spring 2010's ode to Death Valley ("We were interested in the idea of a scorched landscape where there is an incredible amount of life and biodiversity"), Laura and Kate Mulleavy shout out Big Sur ("Our connection to it is so strong because we grew up about an hour and a half from it") and the Santa Cruz Boardwalk ("The interaction of skate, surf, poets, hardcore kids, hippies, new-agers: there isn't another place like it.")
