You know that moment when you lock eyes and your heart skips a beat? Yeah, that’s how we feel every time we see a new collection from New York designer Rachel Comey. Born in Connecticut and based in New York City, she began her career in fashion design in the burgeoning downtown music scene earning a place in the 2001 Whitney Biennial. Shortly after she debuted her eponymous line with men’s wear and after people went crazy she added women’s wear and footwear. Devotees include mega-babes like Maggie Gyllenhaal, Cindy Sherman, Rashida Jones, Zosia Mamet and Parker Posey. Rachel Comey collections are known for artful custom textiles, modern silhouettes and the kind of footwear people write fan fiction about. All woven pieces are made locally in midtown Manhattan while footwear and knitwear is made in Portugal, Spain and Peru.
Here are a few of our current favorites:
