RAQUEL ALLEGRA FALL COLLECTION 2021

“LOVE LETTER FROM THE FUTURE”

There is a renaissance coming
Can you feel it?

For those of us fortunate enough to have ‘cocooned' during this global slowdown,
meditating on Life’s priorities,
perhaps the quiet brought you back to your Heart’s deep longings...
A voice that can be drowned out by the noise of a metropolitan world.

HUMAN NATURE… We are OF nature, not separate. Simply the ‘human’ part.

One of the most fruitful experiences for me personally has been spending time in my little garden.
She is full of gifts.
I’m always struck by and a little bit envious of the unapologetic way flowers bloom.
With such ease and grace
In full acceptance of their singular purpose

I love to imagine that each person is a one-of-a-kind flower. An ever-changing kaleidoscope of chosen adornments

This collection is a love letter from the future.
Just being alive feels like a great promise!
We each have a purpose here.
How will i show my gratitude for this gifted life when i’m able to walk down the street again, mask free?
How will i honor my singular purpose?
No hiding
Simply SHINING

I can see the dance party in my mind’s eye
Celebrating the freedom of life, and death
Dancing ourselves into the work that wants to be done
A revival of the Heart

Someone in California ❤️ 's you
A pronouncement of LOVE from US + California
To The WORLD


SWITCHING GEARS
This collection is nearly all MACHINE WASHABLE.
Now more than ever, being able to forgo the dry-cleaners for machine washing is important to us.
Not just the convenience but the choice it gives us - to be mindful of the detergents we put against our bodies
With so many of us working from home and generally spending more time in clothing that suits our home environment, these choices are important.
Our garment care labels will be shifting to reflect this change.
We’ve also acknowledged this shift in the naming of relevant groups within the collection.

HOME ZONE
We shot this look book in my Topanga home.
And garden. For a closeup and intimate share.
LETS DANCE 

When is the next RA New Moon?
