Rachel Roy - New York: Spring 2010
Rachel Roy gave menswear a sexy touch for her spring collection. Fluid trousers, button-downs reinterpreted in silk, and a jumpsuit that mimicked a suit all lent to the "a little bit Marlene the '40s, a little bit Talitha Getty from the '70s " aesthetic-but in a thoroughly modern way. It wasn't all borrowed from the boys, though. Expertly draped dresses and skirts balanced the menswear look, and high-waisted sailor skirts had plenty of sex appeal on their own. The sherbet-colored shoes added another feminine touch.
