The Spring Rachel Roy
lineup advanced the designer's inclusive approach to easy style with fluid silk pieces in a variety of "dreamy and emotional" prints, as Roy called them, which she mixed and matched. An abstract skull-and-bird pattern reminiscent of X-rays came on a wide-leg crepe de chine jumpsuit with an asymmetric neckline, as well as on an updated take on the caftan. Other feminine looks included a delicate chiffon eyelet dress and a slim illusion-print pantsuit, which got a glam boost when styled with accessories like crystal-studded platform sandals or sleek python cross-body bags. The finale number—a one-shoulder amethyst silk gown with a thunderboltlike peplum cascade edged in contrasting lime-colored raffia—provided the only moment of real drama in a collection that was otherwise utterly wearable.
