Rachel Roy - New York Fall 2009
(NEW YORK) Roy presented a rather spring-y fall collection, in four different color sets: taupe, pale yellow, gray/silvery blue, and black. Asymmetrical looks like one-shouldered dresses, cutout dresses, and corsetry ruled, using her signature mix of structure and drapery. “The inspiration really came from strength, wanting women to dress strong and wanting them to dress monochromatic,” said Roy. “I wanted them to be kind of about their business in a way that had nothing to do with how long you want to talk about clothes as much as what’s important in society, yet they’re chic and they’re dignified and they can change something.” The sophisticated looks were capped off by old, mirrored jewelry (created in collaboration with Subversive’s Justin Guinta), classic pointy pumps by Manolo Blahnik, and bags designed by Roy herself.
