Will LVMH buy Rodarte?

17 February 2010

We were loving being able to spy on the FROW arrivals on the live streaming from the Rodarte show in New York last night (including Rodarte show veterans Kirsten Dunst and actor Jason Schwartzman in a hoooorrible ski sweater – doesn’t he know the Mulleavy sisters are the Queens of knitwear?).
One gentleman who escaped our notice was a suit from LVMH; Pierre-Yves Roussel, CEO of LVMH's fashion division – essentially, the luxury goods giant’s resident talent spotter.

This is the second season that Roussel has appeared at the show... Anna Wintour might be anointing the girls to take over at legendary fashion house Schiaparelli, but maybe the fabulously-talented sisters have other plans.
Having only recently relocated their studio from Mom and Pop’s kitchen table, we wonder, how long will it be before the Rodarte girls get a big business cash injection to take their label properly global? [wwd]
