When you encounter one of those Brooklyn girls for the first time, it can change your worldview. Here are women, wearing the kinds of clothing that schoolyard kids and frat boys make fun of, and yet they possess the self-assurance, captivating personal style, and — yes — sex appeal, that forces you to reconsider things like denim gauchos and sack dresses.
They're girls you want to be. Girls you want to hang out with. Girls who have raid-worthy closets stocked with a lot of Rachel Comey.
Pretty and seductive have never really been Rachel Comey's thing, but words that typically describe collections with a lot more Lycra than hers are appropriate in this instance. Showcasing the subtler side of sexy, the Rachel Comey spring '15 collection featured plenty of blouson sleeves, off-the-shoulder blouses, and voluminous dresses and jumpsuits that let you gracefully feast on a steak dinner without feeling like you need to unzip to enjoy it. They're date-night clothes that can easily shift into date-day clothes (if you didn't already hit it off immediately, we're sure these pieces can be the thing that turns a good date into a 24-hour one).
