RACHEL COMEY launched her eponymous collection of menswear inspired by the young music scene in New York. Thanks to strong word of mouth, the collection proved a success, and she began to develop a loyal following. By 2004 Comey had added womenswear and footwear to her burgeoning business. The women's collection quickly took off and developed its own grassroots following.
Her collections became known for artful custom textiles, graceful modern silhouettes, and covetable footwear. The brand appeals to the intelligence and independence of her customers, who appreciate locally produced garments, thoughtful hand crafted details and an offbeat charm. All woven garments are made locally in midtown Manhattan while knitwear and footwear is made in Peru.
