New York: A subtly glamorized bohemian mood permeated Rebecca Taylor’s S/S 12 collection, which was chock-full of her quintessential girlish, pretty pieces. Hippie details like handkerchief hems, patchwork and piecing, apron backs and flutter sleeves were elevated with luxe materials and embellishments including shimmery paillettes, pearlized sequins, lurex threads and lace panels. As expected, airy dresses in silk and chiffon made up most of the offering, while leather peplum tops, slouchy Bermuda shorts, pointelle pencil skirts and weightless anoraks in glazed nylon were pleasant surprises. Print and pattern ranged from a pale tribal chevron motif to a graphic oversized floral to a Japanese shibori resembling clouds in the sky. A new take on the muted snakeskin print that sold out last season, was also present. As a final luxe-boho touch, Tibetan prayer beads, interpreted in colored pearl, were worn casually slung across the body. -Anna Jane Davis
