Pastels, perforation, and prints ruled the runway at Rebecca Taylor’s Spring 2014 Fashion Houston show. With designs so perfectly created for hot, humid weather, it’s no wonder the designer has such a large following in the Bayou City.
Taylor balanced tougher details with her trademark feminine style. From flirty floral prints (inspired by David Bowie—how cool is that?) and laminated stripes to mesh, patchwork patterns and lace, her collection was girly with an athletic edge. Nothing stood out as too conceptual or complicated, despite the array of textures and rainbow of muted colors.
The expertly tailored silhouettes of each ensemble were perhaps the collection's most notable detail. Every proportion—from the length of a blouse to the volume of the slightly-oversized pants—was exactly as it should be. The princess seams with contrasting piping on a divine yellow dress were executed so perfectly they appeared to be part of the fabric. As a seamstress and a patternmaker, Taylor knows that the construction of a garment is as important as the design.
Catch the collection at Neiman Marcus this spring.
