Rachel Zoe S/S 2012

Rachel Zoe is arguably the most sought after stylist in the game, so it’s no surprise that she’s come out with her own inspired collection. In her own words if the line wasn’t a success, she’d be officially “over.” Fortunately for Zoe, the line is thoughtful, flawlessly tailored and current with a vintage edge.  Known for her “more is more” aesthetic, Zoe has smartly edited herself and presented a winning line lauded by Women’s Wear Daily (aka the be all and end all of critics!).  Also, much of the collection is surprisingly affordable. My favorite piece in the line are the Trapunto Stitch High Waist Pants, trousers that can be worn as a separate or as a suit pant along with an insanely chic military style jacket.  Other standouts include a pair of crocodile embossed pumps called the “Annie,” (a possible ode to her client Anne Hathaway who she’s been heard referring to as Annie) and a panther printed halter dress one could easily imagine Zoe herself traipsing around in.  Snapped up by Bloomingdales and other major retailers, this is sure to be one of many collections by Ms. Zoe.
