NEW YORK (AP) — Punk met the medieval princess on the catwalk at the Rodarte New York Fashion Week show on Tuesday.

Laura and Kate Mulleavy took the edge off grommet-covered leather pants by pairing them with silk blouses, and toughened up a brocade organza dress a leather embroidered bodice.

"Spring 2013 is inspired by medieval and role playing games," the design-duo sisters said in a statement.

The peach halter gown with a yellow waistband could entice a hero for a damsel in distress.

But don't mistake this spring collection for anything but modern: The chunky shoe made of mixed materials and a computer-cut heel made sure of that.

Fringe-covered leather jackets, however, were something that would be trend-right for next spring, but live in closets for many years as an instant classic.

The cagelike corsets used here fit into this apparent fascination with harnesses this round of fashion previews, but they somehow seemed to make more sense on this runway where the Mulleavys don't pull any punches.
