Rachel Zoe, aren’t you having fun? Collections from reality TV’s über-stylist have started to smack of a perfunctory quality and the sense that Zoe and her team are merely going through the motions. Some Bianca Jagger suiting here, a Studio 54 maxi there. Top it with a curtain of fringe or some metallic hardware and call it a day. Where Spring may have found the designer happily playing a little in her influences, the (especially) sales-oriented nature of pre-season lines has her retreating to familiar ground. On offer were her kicky shorts suit rendered in a vaguely multiculti, fringed tweed; glittering sequined separates; swingy baby-doll dresses; and boho-by-way-of-L.A. maxis. Zoe’s eveningwear expansion continued apace, too, leaving an army of black goddess gowns in its wake. Her sweeter successes were had in territory that felt less trod, like a blush suede dress and matching collarless jacket.
