NEW YORK, Jan 29, 2014/ — At Rebecca Taylor, Fall/Winter 2014 references Parisian street artist Philippe Baudelocque and the use of dimensional layering of textures and patterns. The idea of fragile work in an urban environment plays on the rare complexity of unexpected pairings of colors, techniques and fabrics.
Rounded coats layered with sheer cut-work dresses, boxy jackets and lofty sweaters, paired with tailored cropped pants create an interesting balance between soft and angular.
Matelassé organza applied over technical mesh experiments with dimension, while metallic glazed jacquards and chain sequence detailing create a sense of edge in a modern and controlled way.
High-shine metallics are grounded by muted shades of neutrals in stormy gray, steel blue, lavender and ecru, for an overall feel of compelling simplicity and streetwise chic.
