Changing and evolving is important to any designer who wants to grow. The challenge is moving forward while staying true to who you are. For spring, Rachel Zoe successfully made the shift. Her collection captured the spirit and romance of the late Seventies and early Eighties with gypsy-inspired looks by way of Marrakech.
Zoe artfully embellished with delicate lace on peasant blouses and dresses and added playful fringe to suede jackets and a delicate knit dress. Other key looks were her sexy off-the-shoulder silhouettes — notably the sienna and gold gypsy dress — and intricately embroidered dresses and toppers with a Moroccan twist.
What was freshest for Zoe was her use of color. She didn’t abandon her signature black and white, but this lineup was primarily filled with saturated hues. The collection told a true story of effortless romance as the models stood together onstage.
