Rachel Roy Imagines the Refined Gentleman's Female Lead in "The Lover"




    Rachel Roy Interview (Published Tuesday, Sept. 13, 2011)

    Rachel Roy's show notes fall under the headline, "Romantic Minimalism," setting a soft, clean tone for spring. Inspired by the romance of the 1930s film, "The Lover," the designer takes on androgyny with a feminine hand, creating what she describes as "a collection for the woman I strive to be."

    We caught up with Roy between visits from celebrity and VIP editor friends (even the backstage beauty preparations were star-studded, with Ted Gibson on hair and Bobbi Brown on makeup), to get the backstory on Spring 2012.
