It's been a fertile year for Rachel Zoe, who gives today's WWD a look at both her new clothing collection and her seven-months-pregnant belly. The collection, done in partnership with global supply group Li & Fung, has the '70's vibe we've all come to expect from Zoe, but it's more tailored than blousy or bohemian. WWD reports that prices will fall "at the contemporary level"—think $250 for a day dress and $700 for a full suit. And while it's still unclear what stores will carry the line, Li & Fung would like to see it sharing the retail floor with DVF and Marc by Marc Jacobs.
As for Zoe's other collaborative project for 2011: He's a boy, and his imminent arrival will keep Zoe from flying for the next few months, which means that she's skipping February's Fashion Week. Expect season four of The Rachel Zoe Project to fill the runway-show void with baby drama (and, intriguingly, to fill the void left by Brad with "a leggy brunette" who goes by the very drag queen name Mandana.)
