Heads up, I’m a Rebecca Minkoff stan. After all, she is my fashion mentor (in my head). So, I’m super excited to recap her S/S 2013 collection for you guys!
One sentence: She’s done it AGAIN! Eleven years after the debut of her iconic “I Love New York” tee, Rebecca Minkoff still has it. Whatever that magic is that allows her to produce collections like this, we need some of it.
Rebecca Minkoff’s Spring 2013 Collection is loud. Vibrant, even. She used a hue scheme reminiscent of the classic Crayola box. There were fire hydrant reds, rich greens, smooth grays and bright indigos. I would pack her entire collection into a travel bag for an island vacation. Seriously. It has a “jetsetting in the tropics” vibe. Chic floral prints, tropical patterns and even moto vests raged down the runway to Jay-Z tracks.
Olympian Ryan Lochte – sans his colorful grill – gawked at premiere fashion from the first row. He was joined by Lauren Conrad and Tika Sumpter, who both looked gorg! I’m jealous.
Rebecca took special time to craft the electric details of these pieces. She described it as “sexy tomboy with a bit of bon vivant” to Style.com. I agree. There was clearly an element of menswear in the silhouettes – everything flowed loosely – but the accessories and details had a preppy, feminine edge.
One of the only blazers in the show was combined with a graphic tee and comfy white shorts. Bizarre, but somehow, it worked. I’m noticing a trend in runway makeup this season. It’s all very minimal, which makes the clothes the focal point. It’s interesting, but it definitely worked for BCBGMaxAzria on Thursday morning and for Rebecca Minkoff tonight.
So lovelies, what can we take away from another fab collection from Rebecca? Spring is in the distance, but look forward to lots of playful prints that can be paired together. For inspiration, just look at Christina’s choice for her first day of NYFW S/S 2013!
