When it comes to Spring, Rebecca Minkoff has always created collections that are fun, somewhat flirty and aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Minkoff can spoil her audience and clientele with this mantra. Should she decide to go dark one season, it might throw off the balance of her universe (and that might not a bad thing). This season she did not throw off the balance, she continued to do what she does: make it look effortlessly easy, while knowing that there was an incredible amount of detail and work done to put together this collection.
Take the following image as an example:
Minkoff pushes the conventional edge and goes straight through it. American designers tend to straddle that edge and teases with it, but Minkoff creates a look all her own and is successful at it. This is no easy task. Creating a suit with floral patterns edged against a pair of white pants with two blocks of color in a jacket takes a bit of a daring mind. It’s almost easy to pan it in words, until you see the execution in action.
What about a beautiful shirt dress with embroidered accents at the sleeves and hem? It’s classic with a bit of fun thrown in. Minkoff created a Spring collection that worked well for her audience and eschewed all the extra fluff.
