Rachel Comey: Fall 2008

Last night, while perusing the racks at Tani Shoes (strictly for research purposes of course) I came across the most fabulous pair by a designer named Rachel Comey. I'd heard of her before through Lucky Magazine's Shop Girl who raves but I'd never seen her stuff up close and personal.

I was so mesmerized that I launched a Google search first thing this A.M. to find more. I couldn't find the pair that I wanted but I did find that Rachel designs clothing as well -- and really unique ones at that. Style.com described them as a mad mix of Grey Gardens inspired prints and patterns -- and I'd have to agree.

I love the quirky shabby chic charm of these pieces from her Fall 2008 collection:

thanks for the shout-out!! i've also seen some of her shoes on sale at my local anthropologie - it's worth a trip if you need to see IRL. but prices are better online :-)

granted it's interesting but what's up with those models? having bright happy faces won't do any good for the quirky design? I sometimes don't get what they think when they paint these girls like that.

I do like the clothes tho. :)
