Rebecca Minkoff shows sophisticated style for the Fall 2013 fashion show during Fashion Week, Friday, Feb. 8, 2013, in New York. She shows all the colors for her new collection with some in sky-high heels and chunky platform boots. And fabulous furry hats!
The first model on Minkoff’s runway likely wasn’t headed outside in her winter-white (dubbed “Saturn”-colored) leather moto-cross jacket and green, slim Bermuda shorts. The “Eclipse” duffel coat in caramel-colored leather might have fared better.
Others wore skinny striped pants paired with cropped leather jackets, and tweed coats over dresses.
Minkoff put a twist on the color-blocking trend that has been around now a few seasons by mixing chunks of different textures instead of contrasting hues. That technique was also seen on the runways of Jason Wu and Nicole Miller.
Minkoff’s soft-line exaggerated shoulder, instead of the aggressive ones that were so popular on the runways a few years ago (and in the 1980s), also turned up elsewhere.
“embarks on a voyage to the future, marrying modern, spacesuit-like construction details and a new sophisticated grunge attitude,” Minkoff wrote in her notes.”
