The Show: Rebecca Taylor Fall 2013
The Theme: Tomboy with a 70’s British punk edge
The Color Palette: Black, oxblood, midnight blue, rose, camel, charcoal and violet.
The Collection’s Motif: Rebecca deviated from previous seasons’ super-girly aesthetic and drew inspiration instead from glam rock, David Bowie, and the ‘70’s Brit punk movement. The collection incorporated structured silhouettes and various textures including leather, tweed, wool and silk, perfecting the balance of soft femininity and tough masculinity in a tweed peplum tee with leather sleeves and a skinny olive pencil skirt. Another stand out was a twill zip blazer and a studded silk shell paired with a rose camel punk-inspired trouser adorned with faux suspenders and zipper details was markedly tomboyish while the lighter shades gave it a feminine flare.
