Rachel Roy for New York Fashion Week. It’s like macaroni and cheese. When putting together her collections she carefully examines her life and those of the women around her, trying to determine what will work best for them. She’s on the mark. Want a new way to wear pants and a blouse to work, without donning a suit? She’ll figure it out. Her mixed-media dress, which combines a yellow print with a navy-and-white one, appears every season to fantastic reception.
The most exciting thing for Spring 2011 is her khaki-color pieces, all shown on mannequins and all inspired by trenches. I adored pieces put together in unexpected ways, like wearing a looser-fitting bustier over a blouse – there is not a girl I know who hasn’t played around with combinations like this. Albiet, without the genius of Rachel.
