Versatile separates, boxy coats, flirty dresses and crumpled leather stomped the runway at Rebecca Taylor’s Fall 2014 collection at NYFW. Inspired by graffiti artist Philipe Baudelocque, Taylor brought texture and print to the runway for the ultimate ready-to-wear collection.
Taylor is known for her romantic flair, but this collection had touches of masculinity thanks to structured vests, slouchy pants and oversized coats. Flirty dresses in romantic prints were used to balance the edgy separates for a collection that's full of wardrobe staples.
Muted pastels, icy blues, navy and black were used for a refreshing take on fall, when color can still shine despite the cooler weather.
IBTIMESTV was able to chat with the New Zealand–born designer an hour before the show. Taylor spoke of her excitement about the collection and what inspired her creative process, and she was able to shed light on her brand expansion into the European market.
Overall, the presentation was beautiful and cohesive. The separates were powerful and her boxy coats ended up stealing the show. Known for her prints and textures, Taylor stayed true to her brand as well as her customers.
Whether it's for a romantic date, a day at the office or a cocktail party, the pieces in this collection have all the staples one would need.
Rebecca Taylor does it again, proving once again that she can -- and will -- dress every woman who is strong, powerful and modern.
