Watching Rebecca Taylor's Fall 2014 collection, it's hard to believe that she used to design the frivolous cocktail dress for little miss New York socialite. This collection was everything but that, exuding a cool almost nonchalant chic vibe boasting tonal separates tailored to perfection. Opening the show in a look of winter pastels, you instantly got the real, raw grunge feel of the Fall 2014, a trend which has hit New York Fashion Week by storm.
Not quite midi, not quite maxi this silky warm blue number layered with a mesh rugged knit, was an absolute showstopper. Certainly a new length for Fall and an absolute must by on my list.
Unlike many other Fall collections, Rebecca opted for icey blues and marbled petrol hues rather than the typical black/brown combo, which was rather refreshing change sight this show season so far.
Every ensemble was perfecty interchangeable for that ideal day-to-night transition, with the ideal combination of cool dressed down separates for the somewhat edgier downtown girl. Stylish asymmetric hems and layered sumptuous silks and chiffons poked out under popover sweatshirts stamped with that lustworthy metallic foiling detail.
The make-up was kept simple to complement the effortless feel of the collection. Mac focused on bold brows with matte berry lips using Gigalo and Hearts a Flame, no doubt being added to every fashionista's list of the new must have lip colour.
Despite a rather spring like feel to the collection, the light floating layers were topped with masculine style outwear adding that unique twist. For those New York It girls, looking to stand out of the cocktail dress wearing crowd, this Fall 2014 collection has hit the nail on the head.
