Designer Rachel Comey will open her own shop in spring, but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t been around for a while! Her line made millions of dollars last year, and it is said by many department stores and e-commerce businesses that her line is hard to keep in stock! Ms. Comey has dressed celebrities such as Zosia Mamet, Rashida Jones, and Maggie Gyllenhaal. In a recent interview with the New York Times, on November 13, 2013, Rachel Comey was visited by Ms. Gyllenhaal during the time the piece was being written, she had this to say about Ms. Comey’s clothing, “they fill a funny gap where you want to look good, but you have to be able to move around the city and get on and off the train, and pick up the kids at school, and then meet someone for coffee.” It looks like Ms. Gyllenhaal has a point because many fashion bloggers and columnists say the same about Comey’s designs. Her clothes aren’t very flattering on the hanger, but when you put them on it adds just the right amount of chic to your outfit! Before Comey became popular for her clothes, it was her clogs that caused the most commotion in the fashion industry. The designers stylish take on an unlikely target, the clog, has helped make her the style idol of a relatively new fashion segment; Brooklyn’s fashion forward. By adding colorblock strips, flashes of metal, and even wings, she managed to elevate a schlumpy work shoe to something comfy and desirable. It will be exciting to see what comes of Rachel Comey’s new shop to open this spring!
