After trudging through the rainy and chilly NYC weather today, I made it to the Rebecca Minkoff S/S 2011 presentation, which brought some sunshine to my spirit. It was held in The Box at Lincoln Center. Each of the four sides of central platform in the middle of the room were lined by models, and guests were invited to circle the platform snapping photos and taking in the new styles. Rebecca has certainly moved beyond the bags we all love, and also showcased a large # of apparel styles and her new shoe collection!
Here are some highlights:
Themes included tan/snakeskin colored clothing and bags, vibrant red looks splashed in amongst largely a sea of neutrals, and black/white graphic ensembles.
The shoes were unique and many actually looked comfortable! From booties to wedges to strappy heels, quite a variety could be worn not only in the spring/summer season, but year-round.
In terms of bags, in addition to the snakeskin and other animal-esque styles, there were a few varieties with piping on the edges (also seen in some of the brand’s recent advertisements). A plethora of new silhouttes too — even the reincarnation of the morning-after bag felt like a new twist!
Rebecca herself seemed just delightful (and delighted)!
All in all, Rebecca’s fans seemed to really enjoy the presentation, with quite an impressive # of women attending in RM clothing and handbags from previous seasons.
