Throughout Rebecca Taylor’s fall collection, a 1960s energy emerges in a “mod for now,” idea. Committed to broadening the label thoughtfully, creative director Steven Cateron took to the season to find the Rebecca Taylor language in knits and outerwear.
The look: “Romanticism redefined.”
Quote of note: “There’s a real focus on the detail; luxury moments [that] are fun and exciting; expressive individuality and indulgence of texture. The other big thing is continuing to broaden the category bases — playing a lot with knitwear and sweaters, beautiful outerwear pieces.”
Key looks: Luxe knits with intriguing, and sometimes playful, details: a sweater with soutache braided appliqué sleeves, a hand-embroidered cardigan made in Peru with exaggerated pom-pom decoration (styled with a reversible shearling bucket hat), a boucle wool stitch sweater with removable cotton plissé tie (an ode to an old Chanel moment). Intriguing outerwear in leather (a croc stamped, boxy dark chocolate jacket with covered buttons or a cognac trench), blonde shearling or long brushed Italian wool peacoat. Graphic, retro Deco floral embroideries and prints hand-painted in house and rendered on a silk pajama or silk chiffon dress; an avocado colored dress with starburst pleats and long, fluid silhouette.
The takeaway: Cateron continues to redefine who Rebecca Taylor is as a brand in a fashionable, modern way, balancing the label’s signature sweetness and romance with rich textures, special details and luxe appeal.
