Rebecca de Ravenel Plots Further Expansion

Rebecca de Ravenel, she of the tri-ball “Bon Bon” statement earring that set off a global trend and inspired innumerous knock-offs, is moving onward and upward from the spherical style.
The designer first introduced ready-to-wear last season — an outing that proved successful, with the clothing category growing to become half her business. All but one of her stockists picked up the ready-to-wear offering for spring. Come this month, the clothes will hit the racks of stores including Barneys New York, Fivestory, The Webster, Kirna Zabête and Matchesfashion.com.
This season she will expand upon on that collection — offering a new season’s worth of wares inspired by the concept of a confident woman sitting in The Carlyle Hotel’s library, awaiting an evening’s date at the opera. The collection will be shown to press tomorrow.
“When I start designing something, I always think about where a woman is sitting in a specific room. She is smart, she knows who she is, she is very in touch with her femininity — everything is quite covered because I like long things, but with shapes to accentuate the waist. The pants have boning in [them], owning to a certain sophistication,” de Ravenel said.
For the collection, de Ravenel
