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. View Post
Inspired by their covershoot with British musician Elly Jackson (the bulletproof La Roux!), Paper magazine dedicated a few pages of their September issue to menswear – with one catch – all the looks were modelled by women.
Featuring designers Charlotte Ronson and Erin Fetherston, actress Michelle Trachtenberg, model Veronica Webb and many others, the images depict these typically femme females in “scraggly mustaches and sideburns,” suspenders, and everything from scruffy overalls to schoolboy uniforms.
Notable NYC social women take part in High Society, a fashion story photographed by Terry Richardson styled with 70’s sentiment by Jay Massacret for the latest New York Issue of V Magazine. V67 hits newsstands on September 2nd and features Barbara Bush, Minnie Mortimer, Maggie Betts, Allison Sarofim, Rachel Roy, Shoshanna Gruss, Dr. Lisa Airan, and Byrdie Bell. View Post
