Being seven months pregnant and missing out on Milan and Paris fashion week hasn’t meant uber stylist to the stars Rachel Zoe has been sitting at home knitting babygrows, oh no – the mum-to-be has more than that up her sharply-tailored sleeves.
The pint-sized fashionista has been working hard on her first line The Rachel Zoe Collection – but don’t worry, the business-savvy star has captured it all on film for her adoring fans. Cue the fourth series of The Rachel Zoe Project, please!
The new collection is set to feature an array of suited and booted outerwear items, including a smoking-inspired tuxedo jacket, WWD reports, and sitting alongside her entourage of power dressing pieces you can expect to see elegantly draped capes (what else?), an abundance of high-heel platform stilettos and, of course, handbags.
“I’d imagine everybody is expecting something from me that’s kind of a Seventies, uber boho-glam kind of thing, and, you know, very accessorized,” says Zoe. “And it’s not.”
But of course, such luxury doesn’t come without a hefty price tag (unlike her QVC line) – day dresses can reach anything up to $250, while a full-blown tuxedo look can set you back $700 – but perhaps not as steep as you might have thought considering Zoe’s fashion know how.
Manufacturing company Li & Fung has said no definite retailer has been secured to display the collection as of yet, but while we listen out for updates, take time to sift through the shoot Zoe styled especially for WWD – all with clothes from her new collection, of course.
