>> INSIDER WIRE —Vera Wang had yet to start on her Fall 2009 collection as of a couple of days ago, but the same can't be said for the sisters Rodarte.  So what are the first Americans to win the prestigious Swiss Textile Award currently thinking?  "The other day we were on the highway and we saw a car that was half blue, half white.  At the time, we happened to be in the middle of an argument about color, and that car kind of settled it, right there. Blue."  They're also "obsessed with these colored gels, fills for cameras":  "We’ll be looking at something like the gels, and maybe that generates an idea like, let’s do graphic color." [Style File]
