Since giving birth to her second child, Rachel Comey has adopted a new design perspective. "I started thinking about different body shapes," she said. "Like those without perfect waists." In that vein, a leather bomber jacket was cinched at the back to create an hourglass illusion and a trench coat-dress was cut to deliver a clean yet easy-to-wear silhouette. "I wanted to put on something like that when I didn't quite have my body back," Comey said. There were also plenty of body-con pieces in the range to show off one's figure. A leather minidress with curve-hugging pleats in the front, skinny pants of the same sleek material, and a sexy low-cut tuxedo jumpsuit come to mind. Tossed in with the solid separates were vibrant printed ones like an oversized sweatshirt in a Brooklyn Bridge pattern accented with silver zippers and a pair of plaid blue cigarette pants. Comey played with mixed materials for pre-fall, fusing a cropped alpaca knit sweater with a crisp white shirt and piecing together old tees to create a collage of sorts. "That's The Walking Dead meets fantasy world," she said. Despite the new approach, Comey still holds on to her lighthearted ways.
