Caitlin: Rebecca Taylor delivers multi-faceted collection for Spring 2012

Owing to the production and casting team at ACW Worldwide, the entire event ran smoothly. Helpful staff members directed guests to their seats, make-up teams and crew members kept models on point—I was even handed an ice cold water the second I walked in backstage, which was much needed after jogging around the circumference of Lincoln Center in 3-inch high heels.

And let me tell you, the blisters were worth it.

Taylor’s initial color palate included shades of moonlight, blush, pearl, and limeade. Mixed materials, like Alabaster snake leather, pearls, cotton mesh, and chiffon were sewn together in some garments or layered as separates to make up individual looks. Taylor’s most successful looks were loose-fit and feminine, like her pieced t-shirt dress, pointelle dress, and snake leather bomber jacket.

Later, Taylor integrated wild rose patterns, sky-like textile prints, and colors like moonlight and black. While some of these looks were sophisticated and beautiful, others—like her gunmetal multi-pieced halter back dress—seemed too patched together and adjustable, like an apron dress made for a camping and music festival.




Yet Taylor’s overall collection was original and cohesive, a collection with so many mixed-materials, colors, and textures—one that could only be pulled off by the talented designer herself.
