After a triumphant return to New York Fashion Week in February, Rebecca Minkoff ditched the traditional runway show in favor of a presentation held at Pier 59. Logistics were a challenge, Thankfully the Luxury Next Season team arrived early as, by the time the LNS team departed, the line for the presentation was several hundred people long, The presentation featured rooms each housing a number of models wearing Minkoff’s latest and greatest.
Perhaps a result of founding the Female Founder Collective (Of which our founder Penny Karabey is proudly a member), Minkoff was clearly inspired by the modern women of today and their individual interpretations of dressing. From the edgy executive to the modern mother (the presentation featured a mother breastfeeding in a dress from the collection) any woman could find a piece to be desired in the collection.
Oversized blazers were paired with cropped pants or placed over metallic dresses were perfect for the office or to transition from day to night. Colored Zebra and Leopard print silks were also prevalent throughout the collection, whether in playful dresses or skirts paired with cardigans and coats, all were the perfect mix of fresh and professional. As always, leather and metallics were everywhere in the collection, red and black leather wrap skirts were dressed down with chunky knits while metallics were featured in everything from pleated skirts to outerwear, the standout being a distressed gold leather jacket that belongs in every edgy woman's wardrobe.
Minkoff also debuted her new extended size range in collaboration with StitchFix, A welcome addition to the plus-size market, all women will now be able to indulge in Minkoff’s vision.
