Rebecca Taylor fall 2013
Inspired by traditional British-punk milieu and American architect/interior designer extraordinaire Frank Lloyd Wright, Rebecca Taylor took a turn away from her previous girly collections adorned in poetic pastels and delicate florals, and oscillated to “the rebel beneath” in her Fall 2013 collection- right up our alley. Shailene Woodley joined Man Repeller (Leandra Medine) front row in a quaint Meatpacking District venue on February 9th, 2013 to see the Rebecca Taylor FW13 show.
The looks consisted of leather enveloped pencil skirts, kilts and biker jackets, all structurally and stylistically distinctive from the flowy collections she has created past seasons. Taylor took a “Lloyd Wright” approach this season, which called for the immaculate structuring of her peplum-tops, tailored jackets and coats, and symmetrical lining of her trousers and denim. She incorporated the “Brit-Punk” look though various frocks, as she dressed and lined her collection with grey/black nuanced tweed and black-leather trim. Her punk-palette didn’t break rebel tradition and stood within the lines of traditional royal blue, riot red, combat black, and added splashes of mauve, olive, and grey.
The collection was abundant in the skinny-cargo pant which was embellished through out with a handful zippers and buckles. The bottoms were paired with none other than a traditionally “punk-inspired” crop top, that resided rebelliously above the midriff; after all nothing says “rebel” like showing off a little skin. It was exciting to see Taylor step out of her comfort zone this season, and create a collection that brought a fresh and modern feel to her traditional aesthetic. Our style for sure.
