Marking the 10th anniversary of her label, Rachel Roy revisited her early ethos. “I designed what I wanted and needed and what I thought would work,” she said. It was a step in the right direction, delivered with sophistication and subtle charm.
Roy juxtaposed the relaxed with more elegant, tailored styles, often mixing materials to graphic effect. The oversize jacket was a key look. A gray wool peacoat topped a T-shirt done in stripes of Chantilly lace, hand-painted silk and metallic leather and a lace-and-wool skirt. A group in Venetian red, featuring several party dresses, could come in handy for the milestone celebrations.
