Rachel Zoe Pre-Fall 2012

For Pre-Fall 2012, Rachel Zoe infused her signature ’70s sensibility with a dose of something new: ’60s mod. Mary Quant peacoats, trim ankle pants, and perky minidresses mixed easily among lean-flared trousers, slim-lined blazers, and floaty maxi dresses — pieces that are by now Zoe classics. Silhouettes stayed clean, as did the color palette — just a splash of vivid red, fuchsia, and cyan here or there to contrast what was an overall subdued story of black, taupe, gray, and cream. Texture — and a bit of California glamour — came in the form of matte sequins, printed chiffon, and a high-pile faux fur.

Rachel Zoe is Designing a Kids Line

Apparently, Rachel thinks there are still some holes in Skyler’s wardrobe. In the full “Mommywood” episode, which aired last night, the stylist and designer revealed that she’s working on a kids clothing line. She told Juju Chang that she was disappointed to find that there were significantly more cute options for girls than boys, so she wants to launch a high-end clothing line for kids. “Let me tell you, there’s going to be a lot of boys clothes in my line, I’m just saying,” she told Chang.

The line will have some competition, both with Rachel’s several other jobs and the recent influx of adorable designer children’s lines, but her high profile and focus on boys should give the star stylist/designer a serious advantage. Super cute!
