New Rachel Riley for Eloise collection

New York hotel The Plaza is debuting a new collection of girlswear by British childrenswear designer Rachel Riley, as part of a year-long celebration of the 60th anniversary of Kay Thomason’s Eloise at The Plaza storybooks. 
 
The Plaza features a one-of-a-kind Eloise suite designed by fashion designer Betsey Johnson, which is inspired by the fictional heroine of Kay Thomspon’s classic book – Eloise Located on the 18th floor, the Eloise suite features a pink and black colour palette including candy striped wall panels, a zebra-print carpet and a sparkly pink headboard. The suite is also equipped with a child’s size Eloise robe, a tea-set, Eloise DVDs and books and a wall-mounted TV and DVD player.
 
“It has been a delight to work with The Plaza on this collaboration”, says Rachel Riley. “The Eloise story was written in 1955, an era that I love, so I have really tried to celebrate the glamour of the 50s with fabrics from the book’s vibrant illustrations. It is exciting to recreate outfits that reflect the irrepressible spirit of Kay Thompson’s most famous six-year-old in a way that is relevant for children today.”
 
The Rachel Riley for Eloise childrenswear collection offers a variety of pieces such as dresses, pyjamas and outerwear in sizes 12 months to 10 years. Each item in the collection is inspired by the whimsical illustrations of Hilary Knight and capture the mischievous personality of one of the world’s most beloved characters in children’s literature.
 
The collection is available to buy exclusively at the Eloise at The Plaza shop as of today, and also online at www.rachelriley.com. In addition to the Eloise line, The Plaza stocks Rachel Riley apparel including print dresses and matching cardigans.
