New York: Rebecca Taylor’s sweetly dotted and floral printed collection was a hit with buyers last season for its flirty mix-and-match feel, and for F/W 10 the designer didn’t stray too far from her recipe for success. With an opening look that featured a leopard coat (an item seen on many attendees in New York this season) paired with a demure high-necked top, it was clear that Taylor would pull out all her signature moves. More animal prints were present, as were subtle florals, scattered over button-front tops and a refreshingly simple long-sleeved dress. Jackets stood out more than ever for Taylor, who explored a variety of shapes, including capes, blazers, trenches, fur vests and even a mild foray into activewear with a few leopard-printed quilted down pieces. The looks may have bordered a bit on the insipid side if it weren’t for accessories like sassy bowler hats and gorgeous thigh-high suede boots, which, combined with tough-girl heavy eyeliner, kept the mood vivacious.
