Launched in the Spring of 2005 to much fanfare, the Rodarte label has always thrived off the synchronicity of this sister act. Their highly conceptualized collections are mind-blowingly creative, sparked by a wide swath of references ranging from Japanese manga to the California redwoods (stationed near their hometown of Pasadena) to slasher films and most recently medieval times. With wide-eyed enthusiasm for all things pop culture, the pair can never fully satisfy their curiosity. The secret to their success? “We understand each other without even having to fully communicate,” says Laura. “In many ways we work as one person.”
