Show Review: Rachel Roy Fall 2013
By Faith


For Fall 2013, Rachel Roy trades out her formal presentation setting for a digital runway show, trying something new for the season. Controlled opulence is the theme for the collection — the kind of over-the-top luxury that can still be digested and which Roy herself prescribes to. Including mixed prints, metallics, and rich textures, she simply sticks to her signature aesthetic of functional yet elegant pieces that work beautifully, whether for the office or play.



The season’s signature knits are given a fun spin with swirl print detailing, sparkling metallic yarn, and baroque-inspired patterns. They serve dual purposes when paired with sheer velvet printed pencil skirts and contrast chevron-striped trousers, achieving perfect day-to-night ensembles.

Leather makes a mandatory appearance on functional short-sleeve tops and an even more wearable black over-the-knee length pencil skirt. If you cannot find a way to work these pieces into your wardrobe, then you had better hold off shopping until Resort.

Outerwear takes shape in the form of football-esque embellished shoulder bomber jackets, zip-front velvet panel styles giving baroque a modern spin, and more.

Trousers reign supreme and are some of my favorite pieces in the collection. How can any stylish woman deny a high-waist wide leg pair with swirl embroidery or royal purple velvet pants with laser-cut detailing? The brand focuses on separates which are really the foundation pieces for any gal’s ideal wardrobe.

Roy outdoes herself on red carpet-ready wear from modest-length laser cut frocks to an embellished-shoulder pintuck gown in a similar shade. I am certain that fans of the brand including Solange Knowles and Angela Simmons already have their eye on these looks for their next glamorous event.

    The pants are so throwing me off. I need some higher heels or shorter hems…….But over all the line is amazing.

  13. tt says:

    i typically don’t like rachel roy designs, but i’m feeling this collection a lot. very nice.

  14. Eleanor says:

    Lovely! But why style your collection with another designer’s belts (Christopher Ross)? #justsaying

  15. CanV says:

    @tt: I was thinking the same thing, I usually am not digging Rachel Roy’s collections, but I love almost everything this time around! There is just something about a white suit that I always love.

  16. omgfantastic says:

    um, what’s a digital show? this sounds like jargon rachel roy’s people put together and you’re simply repeating it.

    did they just post it to youtube or whatever? not sure i get it.

  17. omgfantastic says:

    the long lace dress is sort of prada from several seasons ago. it’s nice but i’m not a fan of the color so much.

  18. Lex says:

    The sweaters were wonderful! The pants were a little too big, but not too bad. Overall a great line.

  19. Jei says:

    Some very cute, wearable pieces!

  20. Lolodoll11 says:

    Eh, ok. I gave in recently and purchased my first RR dress a few months ago. Now one of my fav work pieces. Something about her pieces though they always look so bleh on the racks. Loving the first dress up above.

  21. Westafricanmutt says:

    IN LUST! I will wear them ALL!!! AAAAAAALLLLLLLL

  22. Fashforward says:

    She outdid herself this time. I approve.
