Although to some, Rodriquez' work may seem dull, too plain, and have nothing exciting to them, I urge people to look deeper than that. Domingo Rodriguez is actually incredibly daring; to mix the masculine with the feminine in such a subtle way, with the use of sheer, tight, and sometimes even shiny fabrics to apply to a menswear collection. Furthermore, the use of delicate flowers in one collection, a slightly bolder move in a male expression of femininity.
Even when looking past the inclusion of a feminine touch, and the slight tweaks, within each collection is a new surprise. His SS11 collection boasts a full range of clothing, however entirely in black, something highly unexpected for a spring/summer collection, as well as going against the summer trends. Furthermore, something that I admire, is that on one jacket of the collection, it seems to be almost incomplete; no lining on the inside of the jacket, no seams at the bottom, but somehow, it fits so perfectly within the collection, consistent of its experimental nature.
Domingo Rodriguez seems to be an evolutionary force of nature, with an unassuming determination of changing fashion, for people to think about what they're putting on their backs in the morning, a slight change to wake people up.
