Does LVMH Have Its Eye on Rodarte?

Rodarte, spring 2009.

Rumors about LVMH being interested in buying this and that label surface from time to time. But it's perhaps worth noting that LVMH North America chairman Renauld Dutreil sat front-row at the spring 2010 Rodarte show. The luxury giant has reportedly been eyeing the label since its May 2009 win at the CFDA Awards for womenswear designer of the year. Too bad this wasn't critics' favorite Rodarte show ever. [FWD]
