Few things can make a girl happier than a Rachel Comey show. The simple mention of her name will bring a smile to any girl's face, so it was with utter joy that I darted to Rachel Comey yesterday.
Set to eastern inspired violins over mandatory DJ beats, Rachel Comey's SS11 collection was a delight. Mixing patterns in signature Comey fashion, the look was as easy and summery as it gets, from white eyelet to Rachel's quirky patterns like geometrics and watercolor plaids.
Always a standout at a Rachel Comey show are the unexpected proportions. Loose, long pants mixed with flowing tops, and voluptuous skirts made the collection unique, though some of the cuts were quite normal for Comey. One look was a white dress with a ballooning skirt and an attached vest of sorts. The volume was stunning, and would look perfect on a summer day.
The star of the show, however, were the square-heeled shoes that inspired envy in every editor and bystander in the audience. Coming in all variations from boot to pump to flat, they were a complete knockout.
