unnamed-3Mandarin Oriental, New York and award-winning designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy, founders of the luxury fashion label Rodarte, are excited to unveil a rare collection of original sketches drawn by Kate Mulleavy exclusively for the property. Ms. Mulleavy’s sketches are hand-illustrated pieces of art, which are rare and collectible, blending Rodarte’s widely-acclaimed modern femininity with whimsical touches celebrating the property’s idyllic setting in New York City. The first of the collection’s five sketches has debuted on November 16, 2016.

Created to serve as a limited-edition piece of artwork for both art and fashion enthusiasts, the first sketch would be personally signed by the designers and gifted to select guests throughout the holiday season. Inspired by the seasonal transitions characteristic of the city, this launch sketch was Kate Mulleavy’s visualization of the Rodarte woman clad in an intricate frock and set against a backdrop of vibrant cherry blossoms in Central Park.

Over the next year, the remaining four sketches will be introduced each season and applied to select stationary pieces, hotel gifting items and more, showcasing these one-of-a-kind artistic experiences to guests and visitors alike.

Known for its artistic mixture of high couture, modern feminity and California influences, Rodarte has garnered numerous awards and accolades such as the CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year in 2009 and the Legend of Fashion Award from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2013. Renowned for intricately crafted, multi-layered garments and explorations into other art forms, Rodarte’s works are showcased in the permanent collections of the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City as well as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
