NY FASHION WEEK: Rebecca Minkoff Fall 2013

Some grunge, some futuristic chic. Rebecca Minkoff's Fall 2013 show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week was a collection for the "modern girl's manifesto".  The show opened with a great musical performance by Wild Cub.

This was a smorgasbord of high tech fabrics, leather, quilting and tailoring.  There was a mix of graphic prints mixed with color blocked jackets and pieces with leather contrast trim.  The last few dresses were super bright in color, with space age silhouettes.
Handbags are Rebecca's big claim to fame.  Her first fan was actress Jenna Elfman who still has that first bag today (she personally tweeted me confirmation of this).  For fall 2013, there was a noticeable reduction of the famous Mini-Mac bag and a large mix of new styles.  There were three-toned saddle bag styles, big bags to accommodate laptops and some fun purses with a holographic finish.

I think I always love Minkoff's collection because she designs for the lifestyles of women like herself. She is a new mother, and her business is a full family project.  This kind of support is something any designer would dream of.  Click here to see the full collection.
