Nothing could have been more delightful on a Saturday morning than heading to Rachel Antonoff‘s SS11 presentation. Nestled in a brownstone in the West Village, far away from NYFW hubbub, Rachel and Co. created a Never-never land paradise perfect for playtime, picnics, and stay-up-all-night slumber parties.
Inspired by childhood wonder, Rachel created a collection of “clothes to have adventures in.” With plenty of patterned full skirts perfect for romping, mini dresses with flaring collars, and shorts with scalloped pockets, the collection was sweeter than the smores her models were cooking up in the home’s kitchen. There were many breezy tanks that were cut longer in the back, a nice grown-up touch, well as a sheer pink blouse that blended cuteness and chic with ease.
Not only were the clothes adorable, but SS11 marks the inaugural collaboration between Rachel Antonoff and Bass footwear. Heart and bow loafers are the best of the bunch, balancing cute and preppy with Antonoff’s signature ease.
Julia Frakes, who styled the presentation, sums it up best, “The collection is where Babysitter’s Club meets Lord of the Flies.”
