RETRO MODERN
New York: Rachel Comey polished and simplified her trademark quirky lady aesthetic for F/W 12 by streamlining offbeat proportions, instead opting for Mod silhouettes, and by incorporating modern sporty materials to balance the line’s usual vintage-y vibe. Tailored garments dominated the assortment, and even most knits were fairly structured. Prim beauty, characterized by sleek chignons and cat eye-style lined eyes, drove Comey’s clean midcentury message home. -Whitney Kessler
