Feeling it’s her job as a designer to assure that the element of newness is being delivered constantly, designer Rachel Roy seemed more than eager to embrace the next big step of her career which allowed her to digitally broadcast the fall / winter 2013 collection and thus share a deeper experience with all of those who love fashion but aren’t really able to attend the New York fashion week (NYFW) shows. Exploring the idea of refined opulence, Roy unveiled a line up entirely based on a mix of rich fabrics, bold prints and highly decorative embroideries.
For the most part, the collection felt luxurious, loud even but still precise, playing upon its relevance and intricate charm. When the busy embellishments gave place to the more simplistic and minimal silhouettes, Roy’s impeccable tailoring took center stage. However, the main concept was keen on promoting the metallic jacquard inserts, the brocades and the beads as essential features for a functional everyday wardrobe. Making for great ensembles and even more stunning separates, Rachel Roy’s controlled opulence will help infuse a woman’s wardrobes with a serious dose of luxury.
