After snapping up a custom floral print designed by a printmaking student at Parsons The New School for Design, Rebecca Taylor set to work on her latest collection, one she described as having an element of fragility with a dash of the decrepit, à la “Grey Gardens.” The result was a perfect blend of sweet and moody. The designer used patched-together panels of the floral and black silk chiffon for a mididress with pleating at its skirt for a little volume and texture, while her favored biker jacket was also done in the print, here rendered on a matelassé fabric.

Basics with a twist rounded things out, such as a T-shirt trimmed with lace and a sweatshirt with whipstitching at its seams.
