Rodarte

Kate Mulleavy (b. California, 1979)

Winner of the prestigious 2009 CFDA Award for Womenswear Design, Rodarte is known for exquisite craftsmanship, precise detailing, and creative innovation. Recent runway collections for the LA-based design team have referenced disparate themes, such as Japanese horror films, Gordon Matta Clark, Boris Karloff as Frankenstein, and California Condors.

This collection for Knoll Luxe of five upholstery patterns and three drapery fabrics is an abstract translation of Rodarte’s runway inspirations throughout the last several years.
