Rachel Comey Spring 2014
Rachel Comey opted out of a traditional runway show this season and, for the first time in 11 years, gave a small presentation over dinner. If intimacy was what the designer craved (the meal was attended by such Comey cool-girls as Rashida Jones, Parker Posey, and Maggie Gyllenhaal), it translated perfectly through her collection, which included vintage-inspired shorts suits and slouchy trousers — the perfect laid-back options for a brunch among close friends or a Saturday shopping trip with your best pal. Most exciting might have been the denim, a textile yet somewhat new for Comey. She played with different washes and levels of distress as well as silhouettes: the light palazzo pants and v-neck frayed shift dress were favorites. And if we could get our hands on that off-the-shoulder printed velvet (yes, springtime velvet!) dress, we'd be set for our next evening out.
