Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy spent their winter doing more than supplying Opening Ceremony with $210 sweatshirts; they released a fabric collaboration with Knoll Luxe, mainly focused on draperies.
The fabrics come in eight styles, each named after a famous American author, and each averaging $315 per linear yard. But it's the Emerson pattern (second image in the gallery above) which joined other Rodarte fabrics chosen to enter the permanent collection of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. The Emerson is made in Germany and comprised of 30% polyester and 70% rayon, for you Fashion and Interior Design nerds out there.
Rodarte joins Proenza Schouler in producing for Knoll Luxe, and both collections can be found (and purchased) at Knoll showrooms.
What a snotty reply that would be to someone asking about your new draperies: "Yes, aren't they nice? They're Rodarte."
