RACHEL Rachel Roy, the diffusion line for the New York-based womenswear designer, recently dropped by Toronto for a press preview. We got a sneak peek at the Spring and Summer deliveries, and we can’t wait for the collections to hit stores! There were ladylike dresses and separates in vibrant colours and whimsical prints, lightweight, airy knits, and must-have shoes and bags, all at very reasonable price points.
Standouts included the bright yellow platform ‘Keedan’ pumps (amazing carved wooden heels!), a yellow pointelle stitch sweater (yup, I’m a fan of all things yellow these days), and a pair of colour-block neoprene booties (the Spring shoes of my dreams!) – all of which I’d happily rock right now. If only the temperatures here in Toronto would cooperate. How about it, Mother Nature?
