Only a few days in to Fashion Week I felt confident enough to proclaim that this spring will be about showing some skin. Cutouts and perforated patterns were a factor at every single show. I obsessed over the mod chic take at Carmen Marc Valvo and now I’m also hopelessly devoted to Rebecca Taylor’s take: the sleek and sporty biker girl with the sugary twist of sorbet hues.
I wanted everything that went past me at this show. I wish you could shop straight from the runway. The typically tough leather biker jacket and vest were revamped with the most perfect pastels. Dresses, sweaters and skirts were sharply and expertly perforated. Outfits were layered but never bulky. The idea of a hoodie under a leather vest was so quintessentially classic downtown and yet looked high-fashion and new in the lighter colors and with the subtle details added. The Rebecca Taylor SS14 girl is so comfortable in her own skin, she’s tough in leather and animal print but has no qualms about hiding her girlish side that loves the color pink and A-line skirts. And I have no qualms saying I want to be the Rebecca Taylor girl.
Handbags and Hugs,
