NYFW Spring 2014: Rebecca Taylor, Red Valentino & more

rebt

Everything’s light and ethereal at Rebecca Taylor this season: mesh, washed-out florals, metallics and pastels. It all blends together into a floaty, romantic look, but the construction of some pieces (like the cropped jackets and motorcycle pants) keep everything grounded… you’re left with a sort of “urban fairy” thing going on. Cool.

I’ve been loving Red Valentino‘s collections, and how can you not? Everything about it is darling – which actually, would be the biggest issue if that’s not your style. This is not a collection for people wanting edge – this is for people who revel in fantasy, those of us who love fairy tales, the people who want to feel like a princess.

Of note: Sugary, not saccharine, style; bows, straps, embroidery, and other detailing on footwear, very short skirts reminiscent of a child’s party dress – think The Nutcracker?

This was definitely the weirdest collection of NYFW, in my opinion. I don’t mean that as an insult, though – I’m pretty sure this was intentional. From the model’s slicked back hair and deep-set eyes, to the sharply cut clothes and the elemental prints, I get an eerie feeling, like these are clothes from another planet. I’m a sucker for sharp, architectural structuring in clothing and I definitely love strange prints, so this was right up my alley.

Of note: No superfluity, strappy heels (either simple or complex, but never cluttered), unexpected cutouts, high hemlines, marble print.

I got WAY too excited when I saw that pink patent leather (rubber?) jacket. I don’t even like baby pink, but in such an edgy fabric, it looks too cool.  I’m definitely a fan of Sally LaPointe and her sexy take on femininity. I look forward to seeing more in the coming years.
