DALLAS, Apr 14, 2009 / FW/ — Completing her vision of the ‘RT Girl’, designer Rebecca Taylor is launching footwear and jewelry lines and thus accessorizing her ideal girl from head to toe in playful downtown chic shoes and fanciful layered jewelry.
Inspired by the European flea markets and the free spirited traveler, the Rebecca Taylor accessories lines are compatible with the signature edgy feminine with a touch of boho looks that the label is known for.
Partnering with the Peter Marcus Group to develop and produce a line of directional and sophisticated shoe targeting the contemporary market, Rebecca Taylor’s innovative and modern designs paired with the PMG’s high quality shoe fabrication and industry know-how are anticipated to make a significant impact on the accessory market.
Stand-out shoes feature perforated leather boots and sandals in a cut out style with a stacked, wood platform heel. Other groups stand to include details such as bugle beads, laser cut flowers and chunky, graphic stones in various styles and colors to mirror the ready-to-wear collection.
Consistent with the brand’s ready-to-wear line, prices will range from $300-$400 at retail.
For her new jewelry line, Rebecca Taylor collaborated with MJJ Brilliant, a renowned jewelry supplier for the past 25 years. Designing a true extension of her clothing line, the jewelry collection consists of whimsical designs available in materials such as white, yellow and rose 18K vermeil.
The capsule jewelry collection which consists of a sequin, flower, star and an organic group showcases the feminine aesthetic of the Rebecca Taylor brand. A distinctive feature developed for all necklaces is a sliding mechanism that replaces the traditional clasp making each piece adjustable in length for a perfect customized and layering fit.
The collection will retail with the contemporary market in mind ranging from $150-$500
The new shoe and jewelry collections will be sold at the Rebecca Taylor boutique, select department stores, specialty boutiques and contemporary websites nationwide.
