Rachel Roy Resort 2011: The Masculine-Feminine Mix

Rachel Roy emphasized the mixing of masculine and feminine elements, stating how getting the perfect blend was often a challenge for many women today. In her Resort 2011 collection, she did just that, incorporating styles borrowed from the boys with girlish charm in the form of sequins, skirts, sheer and pretty prints. The mix of hard and soft was a chic and modern interpretation of her inspiration; the paintings of avant-garde artist Amelia Pelaez from Cuba in the mid-1900s.

An oversize black trench belted to highlight a feminine silhouette, a loose-fitting sweatshirt with an A-line skirt, and a bright, wide-leg trouser paired with a floaty white top showcased the best parts of the collection; the ability to take more delicate pieces and pair them with edgier clothes for a look that is never too-done, but still feels pulled together at the same time.

If Rachel Roy wanted to show women how to pull components of masculinity into their wardrobe to create great looks, then mission accomplished.
