rachel comey s/s 2008

I have already blogged about Rachel Comey but she clearly designed my favorite collection of the season, possibly the year! Rachel Comey is my new FAVORITE designer.

Her spring/ summer collection is dubbed library chic. It makes me want to be a library media specialist (aka librarian). I want poor eyesight so I can wear some nerdy glasses. I want to have long hair (again) so I can put it into a bun.

Rachel Comey manages understated cool but not for the sake of modesty. In fact, she wanted her Manhattan art school girl to be "playful and a little bit naughty" for spring, using subtle cues to suggest fantasy on the verge of becoming a racy reality. The nerdy glasses could come off at any moment and the hair tousled. You have to dig for the real story, and it's at this depth that Comey's mischievous librarian delivers the collection's texture story.

As you can see, I'm digging practically the whole collection. I haven't featured the as many designs for any other designer as I have for Rachel Comey. She's so cool! I want to be her friend.
