New York: Inspired by “Just Kids” – the moving Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe autobiography – Rebecca Minkoff’s new collection celebrated the wonderful post-hippie era of the Chelsea Hotel girls. The lineup featured multiple right-on-trend, covetable pieces – leather trousers, fringed vests, boho blouses and cropped jackets exuded a bohemian sensibility that would have pleased the Chelsea Hotel cool rock chicks. Outerwear stood out – maxi trench coats came in coloured suede, capes came in different colours and materials; slim cropped jackets sported playful feather prints, putting a contemporary spin to this mostly retro-inspired collection. – Diego Sanchez
