Even if you’ve paid us a visit at The Hive recently, we bet you failed to notice the new Rachel Pally dresses. We can’t blame you. They are rather subdued, in black and nude, and can’t compete on our racks with the other prints and colors we have hanging next to them. But we feel this is a disservice to the designer, her brand, and her dresses…so we’re writing this blog post!
Rachel Pally’s style has been distinguished by her ability to blend the “easy and elegant” with the “chic and classic.” Her strength in fusing simplicity with glamour has consistently resulted in a collection that looks beautiful on everyone.
From childhood, Rachel had a natural eye for design and a keen sense of personal style. Her designs have been particularly influenced by the time she spent working in the costume shop while studying cultural geography and dance at UC Berkeley. “Dance has always played an important part in my life and served as a source of inspiration for the way I design. I love how fabric can be used to beautifully accentuate certain parts of the body while it can also be draped to hide others.”
Post college, she ventured back to her roots in Southern California to create her first capsule collection which she sold door-to-door to notable LA brick and mortars. Her Rachel Pally label was launched in 2002, embodying the essentials of style and comfort for every woman.
We will have additional Rachel Pally designs trickle into our store over the next few months, but we started out with her classic caftan dresses in the softest jersey. It is flattering on all body types and although the dresses are made to be quite long they are easily altered. Whether you’re looking for something to wear to a special event or you are looking for pieces for a post-baby body, Rachel Pally’s dresses will make you look AND feel good!
These dresses range in price from $211 to $242.
