RACHEL ROY S/S 2009

RACHEL ROY S/S 2009

Rachel Roy's Spring/Summer 2009 collection, which the designer presented in the fittingly bright atrium of the IAC building, was all about chic cocktail attire. The space's lighting was a wonderful complement to the collection's mostly neutral color palette (though there were pops of deep citrus and green). Roy's inspiration -- an American in Paris by way of Africa – is evident particularly in many of the tribal-print pieces.

BCBG S/S 2009 COLLECTION

BCBG S/S 2009 COLLECTION

If BCBG's S/S 2009 collection could be summarized by one phrase it would be – pockets, pockets, pockets! It seemed that nearly every models strutting down the catwalk had her hands in the pockets of her exquisitely draped dress. I have to say that I'm usually not the biggest BCBG fan (except last season's shoes which were exquisite), but this season I found the collection to be utterly wearable, easy and comfortable, while being sexy and chic.
