Any article about style maven Rachel Zoe catches my eye! Here’s her take on the Fall trends from an interview in the September issue of Gotham Magazine.

Seasons Change

Celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe knows what constitutes a killer fall wardrobe. And the star of the upcoming Bravo show The Rachel Zoe Project (debuting September 9) lets us know how to put it all together, one designer piece at a time.


Definitely anything and everything Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs. Sky-high platforms, the higher the better, And a goldy metallic tunic and wide-leg pant with this amazing headband around the top for Marc’s fall runway-loved that. The Alexander McQueen collection: I want those ivory tulle goddessy dresses. I’ve already ordered my YSL platforms. I Want the black platform ankle boots and the round-toe pump, the super high platform. Gucci as well. There’s the amazing tapestry bag. I love the accessories for all and I like the whole bohemian quality about the collection with all the prints. Very seventies motif and silhouettes, which i love.

I think there are very few trends you have to let go of. We’re still seeing so much of the wide corset belts and skinny belts, and the platforms are just getting higher and higher and higher. The accessories are bolder and bolder. Designers like Balenciaga, Lanvin, Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton: They all did unbelievable costume jewelry necklaces, huge, huge pieces for around the neck, which I love. I’ve been doing that since I was 15!

We’re also still seeing a lot of plaids, prints, and paisleys. Bold, bold florals, but the tones are obviously much darker for fall. Tights, tons of tights-opaque and white. Alexander McQueen showed a lot of white tights, if I remember correctly. And I think we’re seeing a lot of clutches. There’s a big movement into clutches. day bags even. like oversized clutches, envelopes, and messenger bags.


There isn’t much Karl Lagerfeld has done in his career that I wouldn’t wear. I think when you’re buying a piece of Chanel, you’re never, ever going to regret it. You’re going to be able to wear it for a very, very long time, and I wear my vintage Chanel pieces like I wear my new Chanel pieces, I own at least 100 Chanel bags and at least seven jackets and dresses. I collect vintage Chanel bags, new Chanel bags, vintage Hermes bags, new Hermes bags. And I never, ever get rid of anything Tom Ford ever did. That will be in my possession forever. I will die with my Tom Ford collection.


I would say a coat in a bold color-a real statement coat with a very strong neckline., like a great sixties collar. Narciso Rodriguez did a beautiful orange one for fall. There was a coat I loved that Matthew Williamson did with patchwork fur-it was leather and suede with caramel color fur. And J.Mendel-oh my god, his furs were just off the charts.

I would also say shoes. Louis Vuitton: The shoes were crazy-high platforms, like crazy high. Amazing. And the Lanvin fall collection was absolutely extraordinary. He [Alber Elbaz] did a slew of dresses that were just so amazing, but there were two particular that had beading and gold embroidery. They’re both short, they’re spectacular. So good.
