New York Fashion Week officially starts tomorrow, but we got a smart and sartorially impeccable headstart this morning at Rachel Comey's spring 2010 show. Comey opted to present her Rain or Shine collection way above the madness on a rooftop, and it literally felt like the heavens were about to pour down on Chelsea with every passing model. A partially cloudy sky was actually the perfect backdrop for the collection—Comey layered flirty, printed blouses and dresses under patterned cardigans and rain coats. These were definitely outfits that lent themselves to sunshine and/or showers, and let's not forget the awesome all-weather Grace Coddington-inspired hair! In fact we counted at least four feminine reinventions of the rain coat (cropped, draped, wasp-waisted etc), which was strangely kind of a bummer, since these are the practical, lovely, rain or shine clothes we've been longing for all summer.
