Alicia Silvertsone poses for the Rodarte Fall 2021 RTW collection highlighting the the campy, kitschy teen world of Clueless as the abstratc inspiration behind the lineup.
This season, they started with a bias-cut halter midi-dress in cartoon hibiscus prints or vixen sequins held up with a ribbon bow at the neck. For going out, they built up their sequined offering, and for staying in they translated their floral prints into stretch dresses, tops, and pants. There’s also a big varsity jacket, an evolution of their popular souvenir style, worn by models of all genders.
“We are thinking about how people want to wear things,” Laura says. “I don’t think I could even design outside of this moment.”
Clueless helped boost the profile of “totally important designers” who, with big-time runways and in-store displays of stretch knit tights, jeans, and T-shirts, transformed the look of ’90s femininity.
