In her show notes, Rachel Comey slightly appropriated a quote from John le Carré’s “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy:” “The more identities a (wo)man has, the more they express the person they conceal.” For fall, Comey’s girl — who usually swings more toward the Bowery-Brooklyn end of the city — worked several identities with confidence. There were charming tomboys in sport jackets and high-waisted pants; elegant women in boxy silhouettes that almost had a whiff of the Fifties, and night owls in body-conscious printed dresses that were draped Asian-style — sexy but never overtly so.

Throughout, Comey amped up her use of leathers and other fabrics with a more luxurious feel, demonstrating an elevated polish and sophistication. These clothes, like the chic white knit top shown with a full wrap leather skirt, could just as easily venture uptown.
