Fashion Week: Rebecca Minkoff
What: Easy elegance - style worthy collection perfect for a summer vacation.
Take away: Summer is all about white, cotton and breezy fabrics. Minkoff certainly embraced this fact by opening the show in an all white cotton number (white jeans paired with a boxy jacket.) The clothes have a sense of ease and nonchalance, with a nod to American sportswear of the 60s and 70s. (Lauren Hutton would've approved.) Embroideries, floral prints and fringed hems added complexity to the collection. Yet in its most decorated form, the separates go together as if the wearer just throw on an incredibly put-together outfit without much thoughts. And who would blame this carefree attitude during the hot summer months?
What we love: the white cotton shirt jumpsuit, bralette mixed with pencil skirt with fringes.
