One of the industry's hottest young designers has officially unveiled select looks from her Spring/Summer 2013 collection. Since launching in 2008 the emerging designer has become known for her uncomplicated, wearable and slightly sexy designs in dresses, skirts, tops, pants, jackets and accessories and her latest warm weather collection is no exception.
Deliciously bright prints, clean lines and a slightly retro edge are the hallmarks of raquelle.'s Spring/Summer 2013 collection. As was the case with previous seasons,the pieces of this newest collection feature prints that are created by the designer herself and are exclusive to the raquelle. brand. "My collection is for the woman who appreciates couture but isn't afraid to have fun with fashion and play with her personal style and my Spring/Summer 2013 designs really epitomize that," says Raquelle.
Manufactured in the same factory as internationally-known brands like Theory and Rag & Bone, raquelle. is all about consistency in quality. Pieces from the Spring/Summer 2013 collection will retail for between $78 - $298 and will be available at select boutiques and online shopping destinations starting in April.
The raquelle. collection was born on a breezy, sunny, summer morning in 2008; it was one of those serendipitious encounters that epitomizes New York City at it’s magical best. Raquelle strolled past an outdoor cafe in the West Village wearing a silky, flowing dress she had designed for fun the week before. A woman sitting at an outdoor table called her over excitedly to inquire about the dress. When Raquelle told her it was an original creation, the woman ordered three of them in different colors on the spot and the raquelle. brand was born. Inspired by her American and Parisian roots, the New York-based designer has a love for the dramatic yet simple silhouettes of the 1960's and softer Art Deco patterns. raquelle. is available a the following boutiques and online retailers: Trillium (Chicago, IL), Floradora (Chicago, IL), Mirabella Mansori (Solana Beach, CA), Artifact (New York, NY), Birch (New York, NY), Darling (New York, NY), Kristes (New York, NY), New York Dolls (New York, NY), Thistle & Clover (New York, NY), www.shoptiques.com and www.sundaybrunchdress.com.
