LINED WITH SPRING

Three of my favourite pieces from the Rebecca Minkoff Spring/Summer 2013 collection from New York Fashion Week for my 'fashundolls' to wear. 〜(・▽・〜)(〜・▽・)〜

  • I'd wear all of the first look, accessories and model's face included (shoes: get in mah closet! ε=ε=ε=ε=ε=ε=┌( ̄ー ̄)┘)
  • The shape of the second dress is fabulous - large, breezy sleeves and minimalist, creamy white. Looks amazing with the model's skin tone
  • I definitely don't have the broad shoulders required to pull the third look off (the model is gorgeous *^*) but it's a brilliant one. That vest and the shirt underneath become prettier the more you stare at it. Loving the subtle gradient of the print and pastels~

The collection is full of bright prints, clean shapes and breezy fabrics, but manages to also feature statement pieces that can be worn as separates in so many ways. The floral theme of the prints may initially feel a bit predictable for a spring/summer collection, but they actually register as abstract patterns until you look a bit closer, which I appreciate. I definitely preferred the looks where white was used to tone down and balance the explosion of colour, but there were some beautiful, eye-catching pieces like the long, patterned red dress. So many of the looks had this rare quality where the more you look at the pieces, the more details you notice, which made it really fun to sketch as well!

Can we also talk about how cutely upbeat and evocative the live music was? It matched the vibe of the fashion so well.

Listening to it while watching the show, I was just thinking of lazy summer afternoons maybe on the rooftop of a tall building with a couple of friends, just looking out at the lights and removed from everything. Or in a vast country field in rural Australia: heads tilting back, soaking in the last of the daylight or driving along an open highway with the wind in your hair.
