RACHEL ROY FALL 2012
Designer Inspiration: Modern landscapes. We read up that Rachel Roy watched an independent documentary called Women in the Dirt, highlighting eight female architects who have designed groundbreaking outdoor spaces that blur the line between nature and the man-made. To her, fascination, to us, her Fall 2012 modern, feminine, ready to wear collection.
Colors, Materials, Shapes: Linear silhouettes, chock full of an organic color palette — granite, eucalyptus, sapphire, “foliage” orange, and garnet.
What We Loved: There was a beautiful, washed silk color-blocked blouse that ‘gave the impression of sunlight reflected on water and a graphic rose-print shirtdress with a tuxedolike tail.’ The biggest crowd-pleaser (which also happened to be Roy’s favorite) was this striking fuchsia set with slim trousers and a high-neck, open-back top that looked like a vest worn in reverse. We loved the entire collection, it felt very down to earth , which is something we don’t usually see from Rachel Roy’s previous collections. A definite breath of fresh air.
