Overall Takeaway: Slouchy, sexy, understated fare with a touch of Asian influence

Rachel Roy may have made a splash when she showed up to a recent red carpet event in her pajamas (“Silk pajamas are so chic and unexpected,” she told the Post at the time), but she clearly stands by her fashion statement. For spring, PJ styling appeared in droves, whether in a washed silk blouse or a louche, robelike trench coat.

It’s become a signature of sorts for Roy, that not-trying-too-hard glamour. You won’t find anything tight or body-con in her Spring 2012 collection, but that certainly doesn’t mean it’s not sexy—a long jacquard draped dress with an open back and a taupe yarn-knit dress that fell off the shoulder were proof of that. But her separates are just as easy: a great draped blazer in pale mint, slouchy pants, and the aforementioned silk pajama shirts.

There were subtle Asian influences, like wide obi-esque belts over silk dresses and mandarin collars, but smartly, Roy avoided anything too theme-y. She simply knows how modern women want to dress, and for spring, she certainly delivered.
