What to expect from a Rebecca Taylor collection? Softness. Femininity. Blush pink pieces. Yes, this was all present in the Rebecca Taylor spring 2014 collection but what was not expected was the harder elements that Taylor treated girly skirts and soft trousers, like the crystal embellishments along the back of a skirt or top so there was interest as the models exited. Fabrics and texture continue to be a essential to modern trends - lazer cut leather frocks, sheer details on tops and skirts. Leather shells are on demand and in a Rebecca pink, the girly-girls will find this edge more to their sensibilities.
But at times Taylor's hand over worked a top or perhaps a zipper may not have been necessary on a pleated skirt. Some of the denim pieces were the weaker elements of the collection but the trousers with perforated details and two-tone features had editors and buyers sitting at attention in their seats. It was a stronger Rebecca Taylor collection and one we can expect to see on the street style circuit.
