Finally, following the Juarez-themed makeup snafu, there may be some good news in the horizon for Rodarte. The American-based line, headed up by sister Laura and Kate Mulleavy, is reportedly being considered for a potential investment by LVMH.
Pierre-Yves Roussel, CEO of the French conglomerate known for controlling some of the most luxurious brands in the world, was spotted front row at Rodarte's fall/winter 2010 show back in February and admitted he "loved what they do". But if the investment titan were to acquire Rodarte, the still emerging label would be in a league all its own alongside headliners of the LVMH lineup like Louis Vuitton, Givenchy and Marc Jacobs.
Although WWD reported that Roussel has been in "numerous talks" with the Mulleavy camp, no word from either party has confirmed the status of the agreement. So stay tuned!
