The work of Parisian street artist Philippe Baudelocque informed much of Rebecca Taylor’s latest collection in both obvious and subtle ways.

A black and white “storm” print, for example, was a clear nod to the artist’s tenuous chalk drawings on black backgrounds throughout the city. But Taylor’s mix of delicate fabrics and soft colors juxtaposed against tougher fare spoke to the idea of fragility in an urban environment. A winning example was a soft pink coat accented with a hardy chain detail on its collar, worn over a crisp dress stamped with painterly rose gold blotches and a dainty chiffon slip peeking out from underneath.
