REBECCA MINKOFF SPRING/SUMMER 2013

GOOD VIBRATIONS MEETS THE MODERN WOMAN IN THIS ULTRA-COOL COLLECTION

Rebecca MinkoffRebecca Minkoff is one of those designers who finds a clear vision, sticks with it, and knows how to turn it from vague idea to fabulous fashion.  That’s not as easy as it sounds.  Often, you read the designer’s notes and, if you can figure out what that inspiration statement means, you’re then tasked with trying to figure out how that’s expressed in the clothes.  Not with Minkoff.

For spring/sumer 2013, she took her inspiration from the photographs of Slim Aarons.  But, rather than stick her girl on a never-ending trip to the ‘60s and ‘70s, she livened it up with a chic feel that’s a little bit bohemian and a lot of right now.

Floral print pants were topped with a slick, ¾ sleeve jacket.  A paisley, spaghetti-strapped sundress had a trendy, asymmetrical hemline.  There was a pink snakeskin-looking overall that was filled with imagination, but executed so that you could actually wear it.

The prints were bold and retro, but never throwbacks.  Sexy bustiers were paired with fringed skirts.  Pops of color came in cool blues and bright oranges.  Whites were always crisp and clean.  Shorts were made for a weekend in the Hamptons.

There was nothing formal about this collection.  All of it was sporty, beachy, truly made for fun.  The beautiful lines mixed with whimsical touches are Minkoff’s stock and trade.  Originality mixed with comfort is something so many of us cry out for, especially in a summer collection.  Minkoff, as ever, delivered on all counts.

  1. I am so happy for the large amount of the color white appearing in her collection. I think white is the ultimate color for summer and always looks fresh and crispy. Thanks for sharing. Sara
