Rebecca Minkoff drew on inspiration she found while visiting the desert Baja California desert specifically, architect Luis Barragán’s “poetic use of color”— rust, sand, dusty rose and light blue. The collection itself was heavy on prints, mainly abstract that were mixed and layered in the flowing chiffon pieces. Flyaway handkerchief hems and uneven front-to-back hemlines were prevalent on loose flowing skirts and dresses. But there were also plenty of shorts — leather and high-waisted — and Seventies-style pants, plus slinky knits with pops of neon, solid jackets and skinny jeans. And therein lies the problem. Minkoff, who is usually so focused on the direction of her brand, could use a bit of editing here to deliver a clear fashion message.
