Gorgeous Rachel Roy, the designer of high-end clothes that we always confuse with TV cook Rachael Ray, is launching a less pricey line on HSN on July 7, the home shopping channel said Thursday,
Debuting during HSN’s 35th birthday celebration, the new label Rachel Roy “capsule” collection includes clothing, jewelry, handbags and shoes, all available exclusively on HSN.
“I love how HSN has become such a trusted voice in fashion and my label Rachel Roy collection feels like the perfect complement,” Roy said in a canned statement. “We all strive to find things that make us feel and look stylish and chic and my new line makes it so effortless.”
Who told you to say that, Rachel? Mindy Grossman?
The HSN collection includes print satin and jersey dresses; a round-toe wedge pump available in five different colors and patterns; a clutch, satchel bag and tote in the season’s best pop colors; and statement jewelry.
“Rachel Roy has become one of the most watched American designers in fashion today, designing for luminary figures like Michelle Obama,” said John Bosco, HSN’s senior vice president of apparel, accessories and jewelry. “HSN has become a fashion destination for millions of women across the country and we are excited to give them insider access to yet another high-profile designer with the debut of label Rachel Roy.”
The capsule collection of apparel and accessories ranges in price from $36 to $148.
