Fashion & Style: Manhattan-based designer, Rachel Roy, has recently launched her Resort line. Known as one of the most stylish women in fashion, Rachel Roy Resort stays true to the designer's emphasis on comfort and elegance.
Combining a natural color palette with bold, eye-catching pieces in an array of wearable fabrics, Rachel Roy Resort stays true to its "Scuba Pop" theme. Featuring nude shoes and black bags in a variety of shapes and fabrics, the accessories compliment and enhance the bold colors and fabrics that make up the essentials of the collection.
Launching from a tropical feeling of scuba diving through exotic coral reefs, the fabrics highlight shimmering, flowing shapes in bold hues of royal, coral, pumice, and neon. Light-catching sequins and fabrics made to look like snorkeling and scuba-wear invoke the tropical, under the seas vision of "Scuba Pop." The collection also pairs structure with fluidity in many of the pieces, with cut shoulders and geometric prints alongside clean and lean shapes.
Sequins add a mermaid-like feel to clothes that are exaggerated, like a mini paired with a long coral cardigan or a long sequined sleeveless top with some royal blue pants that hit the floor in waves. Adding to the exotic aura, the look book for the collection was shot against a tropical-flavored background, resembling the inside of a painted concrete pool.
Playing with textures and colors, the resort collection is a lively tribute to the tropical vacation of a fashionista. Rachel Roy can be found at luxury department stores nationwide, including Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom.
