Rachel Roy 2012 Resort
It seems designer Rachel Roy was under the same casual spell as some of her fellow Resort Collection colleagues, and her 2012 unveiling is proof. Inspired by the optimism and revolution of the Sixties, Roy focused on her traditional clean lines and minimalist appeal with a heavy leaning on single shades of the seasons oft-used bright colors.
Think Roy’s well-known casual chic designs in variations of blue, a stunning orange and of course resort-ish greys and whites. Skirts ranged from well-fitted pleats and were accompanied by collar-bone complimentary sweaters and a simple two-toned cowl neck sleeveless blouse. While pants stayed the course of well-cut, but classically simple.
Patterns were sparse in this collection but not neglected all together as evidenced by a pretty strapless dress in a patterned navy and white fabric and an all-together urban looking snakeskin number.
And one of our favorite details, seen on both a sweater and a dress were urban shoulder cut-outs used to off-set the simplicity of the collection and highlight the cutouts on the two-toned shoes. Details, it seems, really are everything.
