Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2010 Ready to Wear – New York Fashion Week

Today was undoubtedly the highlight of my NY Fashion Week experience. Rebecca Minkoff unveiled her Spring 2010 Ready to Wear collection at Studio 360. I know, I’m a Minkette through and through, so I my opinion MAY be a little biased, but I loved everything about her spring collection.

Very rarely can a designer showcase a collection highlighting so many different trends and get it right. We saw fierce animal prints, punky leather jackets, edgy leather mini skirts, floral prints, and shoulder pads all in one show. And it was fabulous.  The animal prints and florals were flamboyant and daring, and there were also well designed basics and some super sexy cocktail dresses. Here were some of my favorite looks:

LOVE this leather skirt. The edgy fabric paired with a sweet, traditional silhouette is very good girl gone bad, and definitely more wearable (and classy) than a skintight leather mini. The ruffled top just adds to the angel/devil aesthetic, and I love it.

I.Love.This.Dress. This is the kind of thing I go nuts for. The shape is a classic, and the one shouldered is very of the moment (think: classic Phillip Lim, Prabal Gurung, etc.) And of course, it has the perfect amount of embellishment. I feel like that’s something that Rebecca Minkoff always executes perfectly — classic shapes, updated with embellishments that don’t go overboard.

Note the MAJOR shoulder pads. And sexy over-the-knee boots. Love it.

This leather jacket is perfect. A staple that is seasonless and will last for years and years. Just think of your favorite, well loved MAB as a jacket. Doesn’t get better than that….

Loving the floral and animal prints!

For the RTW collection, Rebecca drew inspiration from the early 90s runway shows, which were extravagant and colorful, to say the least. She was inspired by the dark and quirky early Tim Burton films, and Peter Lindbergh photographs of supermodels Claudia, Cindy, Helenda, Naomi, and Tatiana.  Models wore easy hairstyles like this Claudia Schiffer look from the 90s, and most of the models were also working Brooke Shields style eyebrows and minimal makeup.

This collection was all about pretty meets edgy… and it was well done. Bravo Rebecca!
