Spring 2013 New York Fashion Week: Rachel Zoe

- By Teresa Greenfeld -

Rachel Zoe’s penchant for 1960′s and 70′s nonchalance bohemian-glam, evident in her Fall 2012 collection, has been channelling Jane Birkin and Talitha Getty for Spring.  Citing the two icons as inspiration, Zoe showed a highly styled collection of strong pantsuits (of both wide and slim leg), embellished, slouching t-shirts, textured layers, and silk, sheer, and sparkling maxi-length skirts and dresses.   1960′s London mod influences, done in black and white, shaped one half of the collection; a sleeveless mini dress, a white and black trimmed tunic and flared pants, and a black, short-sleeved blazer, worn over a white button-up romper with black trim. The helmet-hat, appearing in several looks, was perhaps the biggest example of Zoe’s nod to mod.  In fact, the hat was a prominent accessory for the stylist and designer, who also sent wide-brimmed and floppy, Trilby, and fedora style straw hats down the runway.

The second half of spring 2013 through Zoe’s eyes, showed what she is perhaps best known for: 1970s influenced pantsuits of wide and flared leg trousers with fitted blazers, slouching, off-shoulder tops paired with shimmering maxi-skirts, and layered chunky knits worn over silk shirt-dresses.  Proving she long ago made her bones as a stylist, the Zoe touch was clearly present in the details; the way a blazer sleeve was pushed up the arm, exposing the blousey-sleeved top layered underneath, the long gold lariat necklace that hung over draped separates.
