rodarte: killing me softly
sisters kate and laura mulleavey know how to swing a velvet hammer right between the eyes. i can't help but notice their japanese-horror-inspired knits all over fall fashion mags. these are some of the most interesting (and disturbing) knit designs i've seen. i would love to know more about the process of creating these. i can't imagine a pattern behind them; they are works of art. i can almost feel the spontaneous anger of the knitter in these pieces. dropped stitch? f**k it. inconsistent gauge? kiss my ass. and could the footwear be any more appropriate? the horny toad christian louboutins give new meaning to the term spike heels. the sheer punk elegance of it all knocks me over with a chainsaw. care to try your hand at hacking it up?
here's an interesting starting point. suggested materials: large needles and an open mind.
