Rebecca Taylor, known for her feminine, modern, and refined cool designs, was inspired by the work of Parisian street artist Philippe Baudelocque, for her Fall/Winter collection. The use of dimensional layering of textures and patterns can be seen throughout the collection; playing with the idea of fragile work in an urban environment and the complexity of unexpected pairings of colors, techniques and fabrics.
Key styles this season include rounded coats with sheer cut-work dresses, boxy jackets and lofty sweaters, as well as tailored cropped pants. Matelassé orgaza is applied over technical mesh, as Taylor experiments with dimension, while incorporating metallic glazed jacquards and chain sequence detailing giving an overall feel of modern edge in a controlled way. The collection boasts high-shine metallic, grounded by muted shades of neutrals in shades of gray, blue, lavender and ecru, creating a scene of simplicity and streetwise chic.
On a personal note Rebecca Taylors show was one of my favorites during Fashion Week. The reason for featuring her here is because I can truly envision myself in practically every outfit. Go to www.style.com to see the full show.
