Spring ’13 Inspiration
Tuesday, February 19, 2013
The Rebecca Minkoff Spring/Summer 2013 collection is inspired by the work of quintessential American photographer of the late 60s and early 70s, Slim Aarons, and the women he photographed. His iconic, glamorous poolside and beach club imagery influence both the overarching themes and minute details of the collection: sun-bleached floral prints, acid-colored summer tweeds and fringe-embellished hems with metal beading. Channeling Aaron’s trademark mélange of faded and saturated hues, the collection hosts a colorful palette of pastels and bolds: soft greens and dove grays are contrasted with mustang reds and rich indigos.
The collection speaks to a girl who is confident, fearless and effortless in both her style and sensibility. There is irony in the coexistence of her pared-back presence and the decadence of her surroundings. With a lightness and ease, she exudes a boyish, sexy cool, taking on the form of traditional men’s shapes and pieces juxtaposed with feminine details. Shop the collection now on rebeccaminkoff.com.
