At this point, we’re thrilled to announce you that New York Fashion Week 2013 begins on February 7. Out hearts go pitter-pat just at the thought that runways will be filled with an impressive range of stunners delivered by some of the most renowned designers in the world. And Rachel Zoe is definitely one influential name in the fashion industry.
Stylist, editor and designer, Rachel Zoe launched her eponymous contemporary collection for the fall 2011 season describing it as “uptown chic and downtown cool infused with Parisian elegance and London street style.” Inspired by her style icons from the 60s and 70s, the line featured vintage fabrics, separates, footwear and covetable handbags. “I’ve been subconsciously building this collection in my mind for a long time,” Zoe said. “There are a million vintage pieces that have inspired me, and every other designer in the world.”
After making her debut in 2011, Rachel came back with her second collection. The designer’s resort 2012 line had a 70s flare, Zoe playing with color, prints, and with proportions a little bit. For her spring 2012 ready-to-wear collection the key words were ‘easy glamour’, while the fall 2012 pieces took us back in time due to their retro rock touch.
Jane Birkin and Talitha Getty were Zoe’s main muses for her spring 2013 collection. The stylist-turned-designer showcased some effortlessly chic goodies revealing once again her own version of the 70s. As for her pre-fall 2013 collection, we must admit we’re head over heels with those urban, tomboyish yet surprisingly elegant and feminine looks.
Rachel Zoe, who has been named by MSN.com one of the “10 Most Influential Women of 2006, will present her fall 2013 collection at New York Fashion Week on February 13 at the STUDIO.
