Rachel Comey Pre-Fall 2015
December 13, 2014 - fall Denim
A few hours after presenting her new collection by appointment today, engineer Rachel Comey was due during her boutique on Crosby Street, where she was hosting a one-night-only ceramics present emporium pop-up. The timing wasn’t wholly coincidental. Comey was feeling ceramics this season, extrapolating stoneware splatter and a demeanour of chinoiserie porcelain into her clothes, and formulating painterly prints and carpet-like bag embroideries formed on a glitter by Jennie Jieun Lee, one of a artists featured in Comey’s pop-up. You could also disagree there was something a hold pottery-esque about a demeanour of a enzyme-washed white denim and a palm of a quilted linen Comey put to repeated, effective use. Unlike pottery, though, these looks weren’t fragile: Even an all-lace jumpsuit or a gaunt dress in wealthy floral jacquard had a certain durable quality, one that came out in spades in a collection’s hands-down standout pieces. Her gored denim midi skirts looked certain to be fan favorites, for one, while coats of hairy pinkish mohair or connected heather gray jersey both had, in their really opposite ways, a right kind of “oh man, it’s removing cold out,” throw-it-on insouciance that works best for this season. There was also a superb shirting preference and glossy, pleated looks in a notional bare blueprint imitation that gained in interest a some-more we looked during it. It helped that Comey was gripping her silhouettes candid here—the fabrics were engaging adequate to lift a collection, while a shapes were receptive adequate to strech an assembly over a typical, artsy Comey customer. Retailers, take note.
