Get dressed, layer up, and then do it all over again. That’s how Rebecca Taylor did it, and it was spot on chic. Pleated blouses were paired with onyx shearling hooded vests, herringbone coats covered leather bomber jackets, fringe sweaters fell over printed dresses…and it all looked flawless. The “wow-factor” came in via glitter, beads, velvet and leather pieced or charcoal nail head leggings. We will fantasize about those leggings until they’re in our closet, and then we’ll rock them, Rebecca Taylor style,with mini skirts and dresses on top. Beyond fashion, let’s just say we’ll all be imitating that undone beautiful fishtail braid the models rocked hard.
I’m obsessed with Rebecca Minkoff’s inspiration—a girl with moxie—but the obsession doesn’t stop there. How about the way she knows just how to glorify the modern woman by empowering her independence? Represented through bold jewel tones and menswear inspired pieces, Minkoff paired courageous ancestral prints and brocade touches to create confident looks. The pants and trousers were utterly to die for, as were the jackets and coats. Blanket coats, lamb bombers, overcoats and tweeds will be topping everyone’s lists for Fall 2012.
