Is LVMH Ready To Add Rodarte To Their Roster?

And the saga continues. After speculation began that LVMH was interested in buying up Los Angeles-based duo Rodarte when the chief executive of the French conglomerate was seen seated front row at the F/W 2010 show, the gossip surrounding the possible acquisition has reached a fever pitch. While both parties are very clear that there is no deal in the works, this possible merging has really captivated the imagination of the fashion biz: What would it mean for a this huge corporate power house to take over an upstart line created out of their parents house in Pasadena? One can only hope it means more ethereal gowns, gorgeous knits, and Tavi-directed films staring Kate and Laura Mulleavy.(WWD)
