Summary: Rachel Roy's Spring collection was an elegant procession of nautical looks, goddess gowns and the return of power suiting. Inspired by multiple decades, the collection had hints of 40's screen legends (white one-shoulder gown), 70's chic (satin dressing gowns) and 90's suiting (orchid matte crepe jacket, blouse and drape trouser). The overall effect was strong, clean colors and polished, precise tailoring.

Palette: Navy, black, blush, chalk, white, granite, cadmium, orchid.

Fabrics & Textures: Twill, organdy, satin-faced chiffon, tulle, fishnet, jersey, satin, charmeuse, stretch cotton, matte crepe, tweed, raffia, satin faille, metal and studs.

Key Looks: Brush stroke printed charmeuse wrap dress; blush jersey draped petal dress; granite matte crepe jumpsuit; white jersey one shoulder satin dressing gown; cray-pas printed blouse and skirt; orchid hammered satin strapless gown with black urchin stud embroidery.
