There's a reason the Rodnik boys are billed as the English Trovata: They both understand that people remember presentation as much as they remember pants, shirts, and dresses. So yesterday, the fashion pack arrived at a tiny private house in Shoreditch (think Williamsburg, with vinegar), sipped cups of thick hot chocolate, and steered themselves up a tiny staircase - past Rodnik graffiti, past Rodnik party Polaroids, past a tipped-over piano - into a bright white room with Rodnik's infamous drum set smack in the middle of a catwalk. "Are they going to play?" asked The Times Melissa Ventosa-Martin, but instead the lights dimmed and out came the outfits. That's when we realized the Rodnikers (Rich Ascott and Phil Colbert, ages 26 and 27) had something else in common with Trovata: They both make clothes that low-key girls could actually wear to school and work, a concept which works great at boutiques, but gets a little lost in a season of performance-art-with-silk (thank you, Giles). Have a look...
