Fall of 2016. Rachel Zoe clothing offerings have revitalized the luxury brand. Critics, with Vogue in the avantgarde, chanted unanimously that the mega-stylist has finally forsaken her label’s recent ‘step-and-repeat quality’.
Rachel Zoe is a brand specializing in mostly diaphanous silks or slender laced silhouettes. Our next picks will show how her new collections tap into the vibrant Oriental world of hypnotic patterns and daring color combinations. So step on our small-sized, but selective catwalk for a private viewing of Rachel Zoe chic statement pieces.
Rachel Zoe Clothing – A Designer Who Will Never Sacrifice Style
What better way to ease the sight into glamor than a lavish pajama-styled Fran Sweater dress? Hearkening back to 70s Channel, the long-sleeve mixes prints and stripes into the image of a Middle-Eastern wall carpet. The same you find decorating the coffee shops of sandy Tangier.
Don’t worry about hanging accessories in excess. All you need are a couple of dark black, over the knee boots and some hoop earrings to balance the slouchy dress. Your look will feel comfortable while reflecting glamor.
The Rory Peasant Dress is an eye-catching, illustrative example that the designer managed to revive what critics formerly denounced as a ‘fatigued label’.
Rachel Zoe found inspiration in the peasant look that uses plunging necklines tied with a button and shoelaces. The silk-blend floral lace combines with 47% Cotton so it trails the smoothest touch on the skin. The piece is slim-cut, supple, and daringly long.
Style is chief in the designer’s vernacular, even if you’re pregnant. Actually, especially when you’re a soon to be mom. The stylist-turned-designer is an accomplished parent of two children herself, so it might explain her strong maternity pieces.
This collection launched in 2015 and remained true to the boho-luxe style that characterizes Zoe. All in all, it sacrificed so little of its usual glamor to comfort that once you get over your pregnancy, you can still sport the Chiffon Maxi dress, the ‘laissez-faire’ tops or the structured moto jackets with a sway. The designer said in one of her statements:
‘As a mother of two young boys, I understand how important it is to look and feel your best while you’re expecting and to never sacrifice style for comfort’.
The sleeveless mini dress bears the Rachel Zoe trademark lace details and flowing quality. Somehow, the designer can easily convince you her clothing offerings are exactly the thing missing in your wardrobe.
The Berenice Dress mixes uptown finesse and downtown bohemia in equal parts. There’s still a sense of luxury in the piece, but it’s neither abrasive or demanding. It just is.
Rachel Zoe clothing line continues to impress both critics and loyal customers. Her ready-to-wear spring collection for 2017 did not strand too far from her recurring motifs, such as embroidered caftans, laced frocks, and tasseled wrappers.
