What’s even more exciting is that the new shoe line will offer sizes 5 – 12 in medium AND wide widths. Talk about a major expansion. Thank you Rachel Roy!
We only get a sneak peek via a sketch but it has us excited to see what’s to come:
Roy explained in the official press release what she envisions her shoe line to represent:
“When designing shoes, I lean toward a beautifully balanced approach of crafting footwear that blends classic and whimsical, refined and relaxed, sexy and strong. On my off days, you will find me shopping for shoes, so designing them again is a dream come true. Shoes are the frame that hold our outfits together. Tall, short, narrow, wide, a beautifully designed shoe is universal.”
According to the press release:
“The approach to the collection is design driven with a focus on the style and comfort a woman needs to navigate her busy life. Focused attention is paid to the padding in the forefoot to offer cushioning while still maintaining a streamlined and style driven approach.”
The RACHEL Rachel Roy Spring 2018 collection will include sandals, pumps, booties, loafers, and slides. Retail price points will range from $59 to $129.
We already love Roy for not only designing for plus sizes but also featuring plus models and bloggers on her social media channels. By offering larger shoe sizes and widths, she just proves even more than she wants to design for a variety of women of many shapes and sizes.
