Rachel Zoe is one of the most successful stylists in Hollywood. Her collaborations with our fave movie stars and musicians are immortalized on the red carpet. The popular stylist decided to take her design philosophy to the next level and envision a complete fashion fantasy.
The Rachel Zoe Spring 2012 collection presented at New York Fashion Week is inspired by the iconic style presence of Brigitte Bardot. The designer limited herself to the period when the beloved actress dated Serge Gainsbourg. Rachel Zoe reveals that, “It’s pretty much like if you pictured Brigitte Bardot in the South of France [in the] late ‘60s, early ‘70s, running around being glamorous…That’s what was in my head.”
Palazzo pants, fabulous jumpsuits along with ruffled dresses and maxi skirts where some of the quintessential staples the whole collection was built around. The fashion pack will be able to spot all the signature clothing items Rachel Zoe also sports for the most impressive formal events. Chic blazers and breezy dresses inject a nonchalant elegance into the collection. Some critics claimed that these outfits are copycats of some of the most memorable looks of Rachel Zoe.
However, she claims that, “For sure, I never want to design anything I wouldn’t wear myself. I gotta love it…But I don’t think any of these girls look anything like me. I want these girls to be cool and effortless and glamorous. I kind of wish I was that cool and effortless and glamorous!” The designs were all crowned and complemented with shoes and bags envisioned by the same creator. Poetry in motion is what this professional stylist-turned-designer offered us during the New York Fashion Week.
