“Designer Details” — By Lori LaVentura
Rachel Roy Resort 2010
Resort collections are also known as cruise, holiday, or travel collections. So when I first checked out Rachel’s resort offering, I was a bit surprised to find such a sophisticated colletion.
Roy describes this line as “Scuba Pop”, a catchy phrase that refers to an under the sea look with the elegance of a “pop” of a champagne bottle. She uses bright neon sequin and knits to brighten up her mainly black and white florals. I have always loved the liquid latex look, and she puts the liquid jersey center stage. Small and large prints combos are carried over from the spring trend set and make her classic cuts more aesthetically interesting.
I can’t say for sure if these pieces will satisfy the jet setters boarding yachts in The Med or sipping rose in St. Bath’s, but it’s collection I would LOVE wearing for Spring 2010.
