Rebecca Taylor La Vie: New Affordable Line from the Designer

Who doesn’t need a new, affordable haute couture-esque clothing line to revamp her style? New York-based designer Rebecca Taylor is about to officially debut her newest Rebecca Taylor La Vie clothing line, to the pleasure of those who can’t get enough of her cool, refined aesthetics that are always one of the most sophisticated during the New York Fashion Week.

Rebecca Taylor La Vie Fall 2016 Collection

The news that the New Zealander designer was about to unveil a new, affordable fashion line hit the headlines earlier this year, in February, with the pieces announced to available in August, 2016. Although we still have to wait for a few days to get our hands on the garments, we now finally can have a first look at the most signature proposals, which won’t disappoint you for sure.

Rebecca Taylor La Vie is complementary to the designer’s main RTW line, which usually takes bon-ton floral prints, velvet blazers and cute dresses to the catwalk. The newest line takes thus the designer’s RTW motifs and translates them to more affordable items (both in terms of style and price tags), which we could easily take from day to night.

Creating pieces suitable for day-to-day looks is apparently one of Taylor’s main purposes, as she truly wishes we could all benefit from her creations and aesthetics in a more casual way.

“Everyone always tells me they buy my clothes for parties. But I really want them to wear Rebecca Taylor during the day, too. I live in jeans and vintage Victorian shirts, so I wanted to start offering new pieces that felt more personal to me,” she exclusively told Vogue.

What’s even better is that we’ll get the same quality of Taylor’s designs in this collection, yet available at way more affordable price tags. Rebecca Taylor La Vie’s prices range from $95.00 for a t-shirt to $595 for a dress (which is not that cheap but, considering the creative mind behind it and the quality of the staples, it is not that much, either).

As for the other pieces, the Rebecca Taylor La Vie fall 2016 collection features a lot of denim, as well as frilled details. Sometimes preppy and at times boho-chic, the clothing line alternates navy sweaters with stripes with cozy, furry jackets dipped into a delicate, creamy color that, as seen in the exclusive previews the designer unveiled with Vogue, are meant to be paired with vivid white laced midi dresses.

Peplum tops, patchwork motifs and floral prints recall the designer’s main line’s signature characteristics, while cropped jeans, trench coats and layered, frilled blouses embrace the main fall/ winter 2016-2017 fashion trends.

A few pairs of athleisure-inspired pants create an appealing contrast with the collection’s more conventionally feminine proposals, while the workwear-inspired garments give us the impression (and hope) Rebecca Taylor will eventually evolve La Vie into something more visionary and experimental.

Aside from a few pairs of ankle boots, no other accessories are in sight, and we truly hope things will change as soon as the whole collection is available (or at least in the near future).

Rebecca Taylor La Vie is available for purchase on RebeccaTaylor.com, Shopbob.com and at Nordstrom stating from August 11th.
