Rachel Roy’s Spring 2010 collection was inspired by the ‘40s screen sirens, ‘70s chic, and the ‘90s power suit.

The designers presentation statement was “elegant, strong and polished”.

Check, check and triple check. Mission very much accomplished.

The collection was full of sophisticated wearable pieces for every type of woman.

Roy’s focused on strong tailoring and draping. The collection was feminine, yet supremely powerful.

There were pants suits, skirt suits, blouses, fitted dresses, cropped jackets, tulip skirts and a mustard all-in-one.

The colour palette was very interesting. First up were a selection of soft neutral ivory and grey pieces, then there was an amazing burst of vibrant colours from mustard to cobalt blue to violet.

Every garment had a sleek fluidity about it due to the draping.

It all felt very effortless and seeing a very relaxed Rachel at the show this only confirmed that fact.

All the models in the show wore Rachel Roy for Manolo Blahnik heels, a collaboration that has been going for some time now. The heels were thonged sandals decorated with chains or studs, or pumps. All keeping in the strong powerful feminine mode.

Stunning collection. I was going gaga over the colourful pieces.
