I am a hug fan of Rachel Zoe, and her fall 2012 collection was my favorite of Fashion Week. It’s a great mix of nostalgic and contemporary-cool pieces. Inspired by the rock ‘n’ roll glamour of 1960′s London, the collection features everything from knit minidresses to sequin gowns to tailored menswear-inspired suits, plus lots of fur. The collection also features the new additions of chunky art-deco jewelry and cold weather accessories. What I really love about it is that you can imagine wearing it right off the runway with barely any tweaking needed. Here are my must-haves of her collection.
Love the fur. love the suit, love the boots. You can wear this exactly the way it’s presented.
The tailoring of this suit is phenomenal. The fur details on the jacket are fabulous. And it looks like the bow-neck blouses are still going to be “in”.
Modern-day bohemian. These pieces work great together, but can also work with other items in your closet.
A new twist on the suit. I adore the monochromatic look and the cross-body bag gives it a youthful feel.
I love, love, love this dress! The color and shimmer are stunning.
The color palette is just wonderful. I am really digging the velvet shorts.
A great sequin dress can get you through many different events. And, of course, I am dying over the fur hat.
Another perfectly tailored suit and the texture is divine. The red velvet shoe is a lovely pop of color.
Bow blouse, red velvet jacket, skinny jeans, and tall boots-I want this now!!
Modern-day peacoat cut to perfection. And the red bag is amazing!
I’m a sucker for the knit minidress and it is styled just as I would wear it. Adore!!
Unexpected pieces put together. The velvet pants are scrumptous and the dress is a beauty. Throw on a fur and you’ve got “wow”.
Hello New Year’s Eve. How rockin’ would you be in this?!?!
Another knit minidress in a rich plum. And the boots are fab.
Another version of the peacoat, only this one is a little swingy.
Love the blue-the jewel tones in the collection are awesome. And again, the tailoring is flawless.
This design can be worn all year long. It would be worth the investment.
The fur snood would keep you very warm. Winter white is so classic.
Rachel really designs a very wearable collection. It’s a treat to look at something on the runway and imagine yourself wearing it just as it’s presented. Sometimes runway shows are more about art and imagination and less about every day women wearing the product. My hat’s off to her-she has done it!
