MATCHESFASHION.COM have just relaunched their womenswear collection Raey, and it’s so good! There are a lot of wardrobe building-blocks, like white shirts, tailored trousers and cashmere jumpers, my standard go-tos and the pieces that I think are worth spending a bit of money on, as you want them to be made of good fabrics that will last. The look of the collection is fairly minimal but don’t read as boring. The palette is predominantly blue, grey and white but there are some beautiful highlights of colour throughout with bright pink, coral and lemon yellow.
Creative Director Rachael Proud, previously of Christopher Kane and Topshop, led the in-house creative team. Together, they’ve designed a collection that covers your wardrobe needs both smart and casual. As a graphic designer, it’s not unusual for me to dress in tailored trousers and white leather trainers without raising any eyebrows and I think a lot more companies are relaxing their expectations of their staff when it comes to clothing. I think the Raey collection provides some great options for the new business woman which she can also wear out of the office without feeling too formal.
