While we're admiring Rodarte (again) here's a great video interview with Laura Mulleavy, one-half of the duo behind the LA-based label. In conversation with Vogue's Sally Singer, she discusses the process of putting together the Quicktake: Rodarte exhibition, which is on view at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum through March 14th – as well as Rodarte's core inspirations and processes in general.

I think the reason I'm a big fan – even when I don't love every last thing they do – is that I like the way Laura and Kate Mulleavy incorporate their inspiration, much of which has to do with growing up in the spectacular natural environments of the West Coast. [Note: the interview is long and most of the time they just sit there talking, so after the intro you can just listen to the rest, you don't have to actually watch.]
