Meet the next high-end ready to wear collection to lust over. Launching in February 2015, up and comer RACHELALEX has already piqued our attention.

Born by designer siblings Rachel and Alexandra Sims, their eponymous label is still in its infancy. Yet despite being newcomers, their designs are far from rookie. The pair has worked with fashion heavyweights Peter Pilotto and Mary Katrantzou, whose design influence is evident throughout the line. Similarly to their high-end mentors, the duo develop original prints from their own illustration and photography, before abstracting these to create contours and shape.

Despite its euphoric palette, their collection is entirely wearable, with clean feminine shapes, high quality fabrics and a consistent mix of relaxed and tailored pieces.

RACHELALEX’s debut AW15 collection Glass will be available in stores February 2015.
