A pair of wings was the symbol that Rachel Roy
chose as her logo when she launched her label nearly ten years ago, and she revisited it for Spring. They represent "strength and elegance taking flight," said Roy, who embroidered bird wings on white denim pencil skirts and slim jeans, and also showed the feathered motif on intarsia knit pullovers with novelty appeal. Elsewhere, she updated sophisticated everyday staples like tailored suits (a standout marigold two-piecer with a DB jacket and flared trousers had a slight retro vibe), crisp menswear-inspired shirts, and a strapless jumpsuit featuring a built-in bustier. "I'm trying to help the girls out here," said the designer. The lineup didn't present any particularly new ideas, but honing what she does best worked well for Roy here.
