Editorial Reviews

Review

"Leave it to Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the endlessly innovative pair behind Rodarte, to find an ingenious new way to showcase their work. This time it's a book of original photpgraphy by Catherine Opie and Alec Soth. Each artist's work fills the first-ever publication devoted to Rodarte's intricate, gallery-worthy pieces, bringing their equally inimitable styles together." (J S V Magazine 2011-09-14)

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I ordered this book because I am a fan of the featured photographers and didn't really know anything about Rodarte's fashion. The images are powerful and haunting. The poetic juxtaposition of the found and orchestrated photographs are the real joy of this book. Soth and Opie have always been exceptional photographers and it is interesting to see the way they've come together to make this book project. That said, it should be noted that this book has not one drop of ink dedicated to text of any kind (the title pages are done with embossed letters). If you are looking for a lengthy, written examination or explanation, there is none of that for you here.

What a disappointment! I was really looking forward to this book on Rodarte because I find their designs so interesting. Little did I know that there would be very few actual photos of their work. Most of it is photos of other things -- landscapes, etc. Also, some of the pages were completely blank (by design I imagine). It was also printed in a very muted way so the colors were not as expected -- they were dull and uninteresting. Also, the cover is white and of a texture that will dirty easily and there's no dust cover. I wouldn't waste money on this one and should have sent it back.

This must be another PR piece.... I mean, I would like to read a book on what people in fashion REALLY think about Rodarte, why Anna Wintour hesitates to say what she really thinks.... and how did a mediocre design find way in the window of Bergdorf. That book I would read.

I'm hoping that someday soon the real story about Rodarte will come out. Whoever masterminded this elaborate hoax is a brilliant trickster.
