Classics Rule at Rachel Zoe

While trying out the latest trends is fun, some designers are wise to stick to a tried-and-true aesthetic. Ever since launching her namesake collection in 2011, Rachel Zoe has consistently turned out elegant, boho-tinged pieces, and this season was no different. Iconic actresses Jane Birkin and Talitha Getty served as the inspiration for spring/summer 2013, resulting in a mix of boyish suiting, breezy maxi dresses and jumpsuits, and a handful of sparkly dresses. The beachy styling—floppy hats, sunglasses, long necklaces—gave the collection a warm, sun-kissed feel.

Naturally, she dedicated the show, in part, to her new baby boy, Skyler Morrison Berman. I was hoping she’d bring him with her onto the runway — maybe a couple seasons from now.

Off to some meetings with our buying team!
