Rachel Roy Fall 09 Presentation


It was worth suffering through the wind tunnel on the West Side Highway to reach Rachel Roy’s Fall 09 presentation. Models were organized into color stories- white, grey, yellow, blue, and black. The clothes featured figure conscious layering in different textures. Velvets, wools, silks, and chiffons gave way to peek-a-boo cutouts and vintage lingerie inspired bras, elastic waistbands, and briefs.


Roy countered the vintage inspiration with ultra-modern styling. The hair featured blunt-cut wigs with choppy angles. Luminous skin was accompanied by the glossiest black lips. We spotted the makeup artist touching up a few models with pure black pigment and Bobbi Brown clear gloss. The look was a standout, and a clear nod to the Fall 2008 YSL runway.
