Fashion Week: Rachel Comey

What: Relaxed elegance. Easy separates and dresses with a distinct point of view.

Take away: Rachel Comey's SS13 collection reminds us of similar aesthetics from Marni's Consuelo Castiglioni or Chloe's Hannah McGibbon. The jackets are relaxed and boxy - a departure from previous seasons' peplums. Dresses come in a delightful array of floral prints, with hemlines going as low as mid-calf. While the length is a refreshing take on the simple sheath dress, it may not translate to real-life wear-ability due to the awkward length. The color-blocked ankle-strapped sandals balance the looks.

What we love: Cotton sheath dress in coral, and the one-shouldered floral dress.
