With a live drum-heavy performance from New York indie band I.U.D. playing in the backdrop, Rachel Comey showed her Spring 2012 collection last night at Pier 59 Studios. Comey's trademark cool-cum-whimsical prints were updated with a chic new twist, "I'm taking them to a more subtle, textural level," said Comey. "And I like it." Adding depth to her collection were draped asymmetric floral print dresses layered over corsets and diaphanous sheer cable knit print patterns. For accessories, Comey showed off another covetable range of flatform sandals, colorblocked loafers, and Moroccan flats topped off with straw hats. We like this chicer, more streamlined side of Comey. Check out highlights from the show below, then flip the slideshow to see the rest of the collection.
