Fashion Watch: RACHEL Rachel Roy

19Sep09

It’s the pairing of opposites, the mixing of pattern, color and texture, a youthful nod to Rachel’s signature design aesthetic. That was the brief synopsis of Rachel Roy‘s new RACHEL line, that greeted me when I visited the website, and I couldn’t have summed it up any better. It’s young, fun, edgy, but still sophisticated and classy. I have been a fan of Rachel Roy ever since reading about her in Vogue via an article written about her by Andre Leon Talley over a year ago.

I must admit, initially when hearing about this new line and partnership with Macy’s, I was a little skeptical. I’ve always felt when a high end designer teams up with a cheaper retailer to make a spin off line, it never meets the same standard. It never has the same quality fabric, or even the same design aesthetic, and usually disappoints. It seems like little effort is given to these spin off brands, but people purchase anyway. But I was blown away when I saw this RACHEL collection! I must say, Ms. Roy put her foot in this one! Check out a few of my favorite pieces and more information on the line after the cut.
