Rodarte: A Progression?

Some have been applauding the artistry of Rodarte while others bemoan their lack of change. I feel that Rodarte is a study in progression. They return to the same themes, palettes and ideas, but continue to move forward. In a world where trends last a week and the need for the newest and latest drives buyers to unnecessary consumption, isn't there something appealing about a fashion house that has a distinctive idea and perspective that they continue to evaluate? Of course, that is in addition to the beauty and creativity each collection features.
I threw together some collages with images from 4 different seasons of Rodarte; from Fall 2008 to the latest collection Spring 2010.
