Runway Report: Rebecca Minkoff SS16

With a modern-day Marianne Faithfull playing the part of muse for Rebecca Minkoff’s ensembles, she rode a fine line between naughty and nice, sweet and rebellious for her Spring 2016 collection.

Her usual influence of the 60’s/70’s was certainly prevalent; mod circular chandelier earrings, chunky bangs and simple makeup for beauty, short hemlines and fringe details (like in a lavender suede punch) but this time in particular there was a cool girl vibe to be felt (and more accurately, worn) thanks to hardware, studs, black lace and leather (as seen in a black leather jumpsuit number) that brought a bit of “badass-ness” to her typically girly consumer. But fear not, Minkoff being a queen of balance was sure not to alienate those that love the brand’s go-to aesthetic bringing about prominent amounts of airy chiffon, feminine ruffles and a delicate palette full of pale pinks, lilac and stark whites.

If this collection was all about the youth of today embracing the future ahead of them, then with Rebecca’s help, they’ll be decked out in Minkoff from top to bottom to take it all head-on.
