Rachel Comey's Resort 2012 Look Book is Freaking Me Out a Little

As big Rachel Comey fans, we were super excited to see what she had in store for resort. We ended up getting more than we bargained for with this gem of a look book. Unfortunately, the clothes were a little difficult to pay attention to at first given all the other weird things going on in each photograph, such as: -Little sleeping masks made of red and blue doilies -Smurf-esque bright orange cartoon hair with seafoam green eyeshadow and what looks like a sunflower beard -An inexplicable fringe face mask -A model brushing her face with a very large feather -A model sitting in a chair and staring into a bowling ball -A model gently holding a prosthetic hand for no apparent reason -Several models just making creepy poses with their backs to the camera

I have no idea what any of this is supposed to mean, but it definitely made a lasting impact. Once we got past the strangeness (somewhat--we're still not really past it), the clothes were lovely as always. The very feminine collection is full of silk blouses, long pleated skirts, open backs, black lace and polka dots in a rather fall-y color palette of black, dark green, red and purple. I also loved a tweed suit paired with a polka-dot blouse and blue gloves, and a blush silk strapless draped jumpsuit paired with heels that are rather un-comey like in their lack of chunk.
