–Odile Gilbert for Aveda
After the Girls from Rodarte chatted up long time supporter Natalie Portman they spoke with Aveda about the inspirations behind their latest look:
Q: What was your inspiration for this look? How did you collaborate with the designer to create the look?
“Kate, Laura, and I wanted to create a hair look with a dreamy, almost childlike feeling. From the front, the hair looks like it is left down, but in back, it is controlled, adorned with metal flowers that look like barrettes. There’s also a Mexican influence on the look, since the Rodarte collection this season is inspired by bordertowns. We wanted to reflect this inspiration with the vintage flower ornaments and shiny, side-parted hair.” –Odile Gilbert for Aveda
Q: What is the inspiration for your collection? What is the look you are capturing?
“Our collection this season explores the idea of sleepwalking. The idea of a dream state, or an in-between state, inspired us.” —Kate Mulleavy of Rodarte
Q: You have made a real effort to “green” your show this season. How do you feel about this accomplishment?
“Laura and I are committed to protecting the environment. Our greatest inspiration comes from the natural landscape that we grew up in, so we are proud to be partnering with a company like Aveda that promotes environmental awareness and responsibility.” —Kate Mulleavy of Rodarte

After 25 years of creating made to order, singular fragrances (read my first ML post for more) Robin and her sister Jennifer have launched five, heavenly, ready to wear fragrances. With no way to access the 15,000 plus other scents made over the years (as they are kept under locked, hand-written card file) we finally have a way to imagine just a piece of the bespoke library housed at Fred Segal. What a dream.
Housed within the pages of five unique keepsake books, each Mémoire Liquide Reserve fragrance tells a distinct story of a precious memory preserved forever. Inspired by the intertwining nature of scent and memory and the irrefutable power of this connection, the collection embodies the story of the beauty and inspiration that have gone into Mémoire Liquide Bespoke fragrances for years.
The Mémoire Liquide Reserve fragrances include:
