On Our Radar: Rachel Comey

East Coast born and bred sculpture student and musical costume designer Rachel Comey entered the fashion design scene touting menswear, but in 2004 added womenswear and footwear to her repertoire, and are we ever glad she did. Rachel’s modern silhouettes that speak to her classically artistic point of view have quickly reached cult status. Never to be one content inside the box, Rachel traded runways for collection presentations at intimate dinner parties early on. Alongside other innovative and evolutionary designers, she says, “…We’ve been more focused on delivering the product when it’s appropriate,” (in contrast to the fashion world’s traditional and already out of date calendar).

Sartorially high achieving stars including Maggie Gyllenhaal, Rashida Jones, Zosia Mamet, and Parker Posey are longtime fans of Rachel’s designs. Rachel’s artistic eye for shapes and textures is boldly evident in each well-made, elegantly-produced piece. Rachel works with mainly solids, though she’s not afraid of a carefully curated and purposeful print. The modern feminist is unequivocally indebted to Rachel’s minimalist, streamlined, strong, and hard-working achievements.

Best known for her artsy painterly printed dresses, high-waisted Legion jeans, and shoes, including mules, clogs, and Mars booties, Rachel has helped shaped the modern woman’s wardrobe. Busy Philipps testifies, “She’s always been my go-to for shoes and booties and jeans … she knows how to make a girl feel fashionable and cool, but also like you can still go to be a mom and go to the bus stop.” Don’t miss Rachel Comey boots, heels, dresses, tops and blouses, coats and jackets, and very especially Rachel Comey Mars booties, Calder pumps, and Legion jeans on eBay.

By the way, if you love Comey, we think you’ll also enjoy A.P.C., Jacquemus, Whit, Ace & Jig, Apiece Apart, and Maryam Nassir Zadeh. Check ’em out and thank us later.
