Rachel Roy who just debuted her fall collection for NYFW last month will not be produced, what should be a celebration of being in the game for 10 years is now bitter sweet. The company that produces her clother “Jones Company” has discontinued Rachel Roy Collection, a rep for Jones Group confirmed to us Tuesday morning. A source says the collection was not in line with Jones’s overall strategy.
Jones is being sold Jones, which is currently being sold to Sycamore Partners, has held a 50 percent stake in Rachel Roy’s business since 2008. It will “continue to support” contemporary label Rachel Rachel Roy, which is sold exclusively Fashionista.com.
This may not be the very end of Rachel Roy Collection, which was sold in doors like Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s and Saks. There were reports just last month that brand management firm Bluestar Alliance had been looking to acquire Rachel Roy. Roy told WWD that she plans to produce the collection somehow herself. A rep for Roy could not immediately be reached for comment.
