Season 4 of The Rachel Zoe Project will premiere on August 2nd at 9pm EST/PST and I can't wait! It's on this season we'll get to go behind the scenes as Rachel Zoe launches her own high-end fashion collection (as well the documenting of the birth of her son Skylar). This week online at Neiman Marcus, Rachel Zoe's Fall 2011 collection made it's debut. You can actually pre-order your favorites now for shipping by early September for most items. One of the things I love about Rachel Zoe's fashion taste is that she can create bold style with key pieces and her entire collection holds true to this. Her handbags are some of the most stylish and affordable ones I have seen in a long time!
I also LOVE her coats! I can't imagine Rachel without a faux-fur vest. She does have a few in her collection, but the faux-fur piece that stands out in my book is the edgy Faux-Fur Turnlock Coat ($550). There is also a lot of vintage inspiration in her collection and I love the look of this 60's inspired Wrap-Collar Cape ($695).
I'm saving the best for last because Rachel Zoe's new handbags are going to give Michael Kors and Rebecca Minkoff a run for their money. Rachel loves carrying her Hermes Birkin, Chanel, or Chloe Paraty bags and you can see how those classic bags have inspired her here. These four are my favorites for their fabulous style. I love her signature chain/peg closure. It's very different from anything I've ever seen. Also, I'm happy to see bags that are under $1000, with most of them under $500. I am looking forward to seeing which bags Rachel carries around town. If she's smart like Kate Moss, she'll make a point to carry her own bags most of the time from now on.
Neiman Marcus has also launched "Oh So Zoe" on their Facebook page, an interactive challenge where you can show off your styling savvy. The winner will meet Rachel Zoe and Ken Downing, Neiman Marcus Fashion Director at the Los Angeles Neiman Marcus store, and will receive a $2,500 gift card. The challenge runs from June 28th through July 18th.
This Isabella Oliver 365 Lace Shift Dress is now on sale for only $173.40 (was $289) as a part of the summer sale going on now. This dress is the perfect summer piece for outdoor parties or dinners out!
Tea Collection is primarily known for it's stylish children's clothes but this spring the San Francisco based clothing line launched a new women's line on their web site. Their clothes are stylish and comfortable for your everyday life. Today I am wearing the Hojas del Mar Tunic which is on sale now for only $69.50 (was $88). I love this fresh colorful print that I'm wearing over some blue skinny jeans.
Another favorite is the Abstract Artista Scarf, also on sale now for $49.50 (was $88). It's the perfect scarf for SF summers with it's bright bold Picasso-inspired print. I love that you can also wear it as a wrap for the beach!
I had the honor of visiting their studio last Friday and will be posting up some photos of their upcoming fall 2011 women's and children's collection later this week. For now, give a quick refresh to your summer wardrobe with some of their great sale items from the Tea women's spring collection.
For those of you that missed the Rebecca Minkoff sample sales that visited NY, LA and SF, you still have a chance! The Rebecca Minkoff online sale starts on Monday, June 13th at Noon EST. I have gotten great deals on a couple of bags during these online sales so make sure you make a calendar alert and shop the sale early!
I'm hoping to find one of her bags in a fun color (blue, orange, or green) that would be perfect for summer.
