THAT 70s SHOW
New York: Rebecca Taylor took a nostalgic trip back to the 1970s this spring and the result was a chic exploration of long and languid silhouettes. Inspired by “the effortless combination of mood and colors in Elizabeth Peyton’s portraits,” the clothes echoed this easy, yet bold sentiment. While the opening look, an all-over floral printed jumpsuit set a somewhat underwhelming first statement, the clothes quickly progressed to show new explorations in both shape and color. Micro-minis of past seasons gave way to calf and floor length sheer skirts and colors moved from grey and nude based neutrals into rich tangerine and deep turquoise with a dab of mustard and deep royal blue. Printed chiffon tops and and trenches with quirky twists emerged as must-haves, as did an expertly tailored pair of flared denim jeans that brought just the right dose of casual cool to the collection.
