I don't know about you, but I experienced some serious sticker shock when I saw this €7,000 (that's $9,450 as of this morning) Rodarte dress. Its patchwork layered construction will appeal to fans of bohemian fashion, and it's certainly keeping with the understated aesthetic of Spring/Summer 2010 style trends, but boy, that's a lot of money.

Implications - The Rodarte fashion sisters are inspired by many things such as horror movies, mangas and pictorial art when creating their clothing. The featured dress by Rodarte is made up out of leather, wool and silk and is completely hand made. There is also a tribal influence to this dress that features a mixed neutral color palette.
