There was one collection I was really excited to see this season and that was the Rachel Zoe Spring 2012 collection.
She had been quoted as saying she was “terrified” about showing her Spring collection to editors and buyers during Fashion Week.
The stylist/designer had nothing to worry about; the collection was much stronger than the previous season and everyone in the room loved what they were seeing.
Looking through the collection I saw many wearable, fun pieces which will appeal to all types of women of all ages.
Brigitte Bardot in the South of France running around being glamorous in the late 60s, early 70s was the inspiration, so Rachel served up high-waist palazzo pants, tailored tuxedos, jumpsuits, maxi dresses, chic blazers, soft leather jackets, haltered embellished gowns, cute short suit sets, backless evening gowns and leather cropped pants.
If you’re looking for the latest trend, this is not for you.
If you’re looking for modern classics which will last several seasons taking you from the office, to a dinner party, to a friend’s wedding or a glamorous red carpet event then Rachel’s got you covered.
I was lucky enough to talk to Rachel during the presentation. I congratulated her on her amazing collection and she thanked me featuring her “girls.”
I see her girls wearing many of the pieces. Cameron would look great in Look 8.
Team Rachel Zoe told me I would look great in Look 21. I would be happy to snap up all the pieces. It’s all one needs for next summer.
Key accessories included totes, clutches and shoes by Rachel Zoe, plus vintage sunglasses from Silver Linings NYC Opticians.
Who I See Wearing This Collection: Cameron Diaz, Molly Sims, Amber Heard, Selena Gomez, Kate Cassidy, Mila Kunis, Evan Rachel Wood, Nikki Reed, Blake Lively, Liv Tyler and Sophia Bush
