Rachel Roy combined some of her fashion favorite moments in time for an extremely wearable S/S 10 collection: 40s screen legends, 70s icons like Halston and Calvin Klein and early 80s Power Dressing. In a clean palette of mostly chrome, fog, jet and chalk, precise cuts for suiting separates and silky tops and dresses looked elegant, strong and polished. Lurex ribbed sweater dresses, in chrome and jet, were worn under double-layered tailored petal skirts (both mini and knee-sweeping lengths) in matching colors. Deep-V draped satin blouses were worn unbuttoned and tucked into wide-leg trousers. A subtle brush-stroke printed charmeuse was used for many dresses — from career-minded wrap styles to a strapless version, perfect for evening. Biker shorts made a fresh return and were topped by a minimalist, shortened trench. The standout piece was a twill cocktail dress underlayered with a sheer long-sleeved tee embroidered with “urchin studs”, resembling reptilian skin.
