The latest Rachel Zoe fall 2013 collection showcased at New York Fashion Week featured a riot of wearable and uber-versatile goodies. The designer said that the line is “about this amazing ’70s equestrian girl who gets really tough. She starts her day sexy and sultry and all of a sudden, she’s tough and goes dancing. It’s tough and androgynous and cool. Tons of leather and suede and grommets. I’m super-proud of it.”
So, yes, Rachel Zoe’s fall 2013 collection is filled with pieces that bring, once again, a special ’70s nostalgia. “I am who I am, it’s hard to change that much,”Rachel Zoe said backstage. “Still, with this collection I’ve changed the most.” Predictable or not, Zoe’s offerings came with a twist and are given a slightly sharper flare. The designer’s New York Fashion Week show opened with a look having an androgynous feeling that teamed a pair of jodhpurs, an oversized cardigan, a leather top and masculine-inspired flats. Cool and chic!
Already known for her ’70s aesthetic, Rachel Zoe toughens up a little her approach for the fall 2013 collection. The line includes flared pants, structured blazers, baggy leather pants, short and clean dresses, sweaters with sequined sleeves, three-piece suits, bomber jackets, double-breasted coats, and an array of accessories to complete the outfits.
