One of the highly anticipated presentations of this year’s New York Fashion Week can be considered the Rebecca Minkoff spring/summer 2014 collection. The key to the uniqueness of Minkoff’s spring/summer 2014 collection is that she keeps it colorful, but simple. For this very reason, the target audience of this line is so wide that it appeals to women of different ages. Women in their twenties, thirties, and, quite surprisingly, even older women can find something interesting in the new Rebecca Minkoff collection.
The main source of inspiration for Minknoff was the character of a strong Latin American woman, such as Frida Kahlo and Bianca Jagger. The Mexican touch is pretty evident in the Rebecca Minkoff spring/summer 2014 collection. It is mainly due to the abundance of delicately embroidered floral patterns around the collars, edges and the upper parts of cropped jackets, ponchos and blouses, as well as lace that Rebecca Minkoff skillfully combined with sportswear to give the look a Mexican street touch.
To get a sportier look, Minkoff combines embroidered leather jackets with tweed shorts, or yellow lace midi pencil skirts with casual “Let’s Go To Mexico” T-shirts, all of which are worn with knee-high sandals and cut-out booties.
The emphasis is put not only on short dresses but also on the maxi ones, which give the Rebecca Minkoff spring/summer 2014 collection a one-line-fits-all look.
Mature look that appeals to the older audience is gained through the abundance of lace, embroidery, flowers, colors of dark blue and orange on a white background, as well as through the looseness of summer silk dresses in her collection. The most attracting side for the youth in their twenties is the mixture of all the above elements with sportswear.
What Minkoff does is merging elegance with street fashion, which makes her line fashionable and attractive for fashionisers of all ages.
