Rebecca Taylor Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – New York Fashion Week
Finally there is something unbiased! New York based fashion designer Rebecca Taylor has just released her new spring 2016 RTW collection, which we call nothing but timeless. We have been the evidence of lineups inspired by many different time periods, containing exact recreations and style mixes of old and contemporary/modern silhouettes, but the Rebecca Taylor spring/summer 2016 collection is something very unique. Once Alexa Chang was heard saying that she never really understood fully how she could describe or tell the basis for her creations: she simply designs what feels right. Rebecca went for the same concept this time as well and created pieces that come to our liking just because they are beautiful and feminine.
However, she did mention the Bloomsbury Group (of English artists, painters and writers in 1900s) as a special source of inspiration, one that has had a huge impact on her creations. She looked through the paintings, chose some prints that she liked and brought them into life through fashion. There are amazing feminine dresses in the collection with floral patterns, webbed embroidery and details like Victorian off-the-shoulder neck. We cannot really tell why the midi length A-line, slightly flattering loose straight pants or cape sleeves with V-neck are the main features of the next season according to Rebecca, but we might go for them just because they are so nice and womanly. The gypsy kind of dresses look so pretty here that girls could rock them wearing every day: just imagine you going for a walk with friends or to a café wearing the white and yellow short cocktail dress, that has one-shoulder Victoriana neck and a cutout thin strap on the skirt. Or you might freely wear basically anything in whites or matching shades and top your outfit with the bright yellow blazer: your super youthful and trendy fresh look for the spring is ready!
You should draw much attention to the fabrics utilized throughout the Rebecca Taylor spring 2016 collection. First, they have very soft, light colors (except for the bright sky-blue in pantsuit and one of the dresses), smooth touch and loose fit. Dresses like the romantic short rosy or multi-print triangle ones, the long chiffons, white batiste A-line skirts topped with carefree loose blouses that sometimes have a flattering transparence, are things you will definitely love to wear both next year and whenever you want afterwards. So we can say, Rebecca went for designing numbers that are basic, relevant and always wearable. Like the little black dress or ballerina shoes you could have one of the white tops or high-waist straight pants that would go perfectly with literally anything.
Make sure you keep things as natural and fresh as the season’s nature itself offers. Wear minimal lightweight or no makeup at all with your smile and shining eyes being the best embellishment for your face. Let your hair loose on your shoulders the way it naturally is or style some effortless waves. This will create that fairytale softness you need when the nature awakens. With her spring collection, Rebecca Taylor advises this for you to create youthful and fresh looks!
