Rachel Comey consistently makes clothes for the most glamorous arts and crafts teacher you’ve ever met in your life. Her latest collection shown at NYFW is no exception. Tons of volume — one can’t be too encumbered when in the midst of a macrame project! — a mixture of neutrals and nature-plucked colors (I love the red and purple moments, especially), and fabric edges left raw rather than perfectly hemmed, like her muse got fed up and went at them with a pair of sheers. Wearing clothes like this in real life is all about proportions. A voluminous swing dress works best at a mini length with heels — heeled clogs, preferably. Check out some of my fave pieces from Rachel Comey’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection below!
It’s that time of year again! That is, time for the the human clothing hangers better known as models to strut down the catwalks of Lincoln Center in beautiful, expensive and sometimes absurd designer clothing, for the Fall 2014 runway shows. Each day, we’ll present to you a selection of noteworthy shows so that, even if you can’t ultimately afford what you see (uh, we can’t), you’ll be up to date on the coming trends. Or at least have plenty of outfits, makeup and hair looks to drool over and/or laugh at. First up: BCBG Max Azria, Rachel Comey, Erin Fetherston and Tadashi Shoji! Keep reading »
There are so many shows, and not enough hours in the day to possibly go to all of them. Good thing, then, that we’ve got your New York Fashion Week coverage down. We’re not even half way through day two, and there’s already been nearly three dozen shows. We’ve whittled it down to a few of our faves from the second day of shows. Up first: Rachel Comey, who created a collection exuding her signature downtown cool vibe.
Check out more collections Tadashi Shoji, Kaehlen, Honor and more after the jump! Keep reading »
New York is currently dealing with an impending mega-blizzard storm. Sure that’s concerning to us regular New Yorkers, but more importantly, what’s this gonna mean for New York Fashion Week? Already, Marc Jacobs has cancelled his show Friday evening with many other designers sure to follow suit. But in the meantime, as we bite our nails about the fate of future shows, we took a look back at a few of our favorite shows from the first two days of NYFW. Click through and critically pour over them, will you? Keep reading »
I’ve had my eye on these Rachel Comey wooden wedge sandals for a hot minute. I love the subtle curve of the wooden wedge and the unexpected grey suede and leather color combo. But they’re like, prohibitively expensive. Even on sale, the shoes cost a pretty penny, which is why I’ll have to continue to love them from afar. Someday, my sweets, someday. Not all Craves are meant to be satiated. [$298, Rachel Comey]
Oh, Fashion Week. How exciting you are. New York’s look at Spring 2009 started on Friday. After the jump are some of the designers whose newest wares struck our fancy, at least on the runway. We’ll be covering Fashion Week all next week as well, so stayed tuned for some other designers who made our stomachs turn. [Above: Rachel Comey] Keep reading »
