Rebecca Taylor’s Resort 2017 Line Celebrates Floral Prints and Feminine Designs

If haute couture usually showcases what onlookers want from fashion as a form of art, it is the resort collections that treat us to something that we can’t wait to wear. Such an approach is at the core of the Rebecca Taylor resort 2017 collection, as the fashion designer took some time to actually study what women are expecting and looking for from high fashion.

Starting from there, she designed a resort collection that is all about wearable, covetable pieces that are just about to enter the fashion world with a blaze in the next six months. Her latest designs focus on a polished yet fresh glamour that is basically meant to suit anyone.

Her mission? As she herself said backstage, “it’s all about giving [the client] more options in the things she loves,” which means that those who are familiar with and love her feminine style will surely find something to add to their new season wardrobes.

While releasing notes about this collection, Rebecca Taylor also (probably) inadvertently categorized herself as one of those fashion designers that prefer delivering familiar styles, which are actually versatile and meant for every day, rather than focusing on innovative and eccentric proposals.

“I feel like fashion and life are moving so quickly now that I really try to have consistency and continuity in the collection, rather than starting something different every time,” she said.

For these reasons the Rebecca Taylor cruise 2017 collection is strong not only on holiday-ready silhouettes, romantically refined with floral embroideries and printed patterns, but also day-to-day ensembles that have been skillfully filtered through a youthful, yet always elegant lens.

This consequently leads to an uber-feminine color palette filled with pastel colors and bright combinations of hues, lightened up with denim fabrics and spiced up with cascades of shimmery sequins. Macramé touches and loads of pleats, along with some clean-cut geometric lines, reinforce the duality of styles, which however manages to keep everything always flirty and romantic.

As for the common figures, Taylor alternates oversized, billowy silhouettes with more curve-hugging, elongating ones, as seen within the high-waisted denim pants and the structured jumpsuits. Although usually the most elegant ensembles, skirts, shirts and jackets were re-interpreted with a new take on the modern, urban, active lifestyle.

Taylor knows what women really want to wear on a daily basis, and as a result brings in pieces that are suitable both for a long day at the office/university or an outdoor date with friends.

A subtle flamenco-inspired appeal transports the collection to a more haute couture-esque dimension, which balances the more conventional pieces with something that could sensually transition any outfit from day to night.
