Rachel Roy Spring RTW 2009

The American version of Chanel's recent Paper collection? Maybe not as stylistically appealing or interesting, but Rachel Roy's Spring RTW collection was indeed surely somewhat re collective of what Lagerfeld done just a small time ago. The collection was interesting in that it was a pure and delightful mixture of textures, while the color palette was left quite minimal. Wools seamlessly blended with silks and sheer was once again heavily incorporated into yet another collection for the season. My only complaint was that at some points in the collection the looks shifted from well-constructed sculptural asymmetrical dresses and well fitted pants to a more "grandma chic" look, where the dresses themselves seemed dowdy and matronly, camouflaged by an interesting textile combination. Though the collection was done in either "all black, white or grey palettes", it still came off as appealing. The only thing lacking was the true ingenious concept of creating looks solely on the lines of the apparel, as Chanel had done with its last collection. Other than that however, a great collection of day-to- night wear. No grey areas here- except for the ones on the clothes themselves.
