NYFW: Rebecca Taylor - Feminine, Contemporary and Ethereal

According to the designer, "The Spring 2012 muse is contemporary, fresh, and ethereal. The collection emphasizes cut and color with unexpected cut-outs in silhouettes. Shades of oyster are highlighted by bold citrus colors of lemon, lime and tangerine. Cropped slouchy embellished sweaters, long skirts and voluminous outerwear in technical fabrics add edge while apron back dresses mixed with bone colored snake leather bibs inject a paired down cool attitude which sets the tone for the Spring 2012 collection."

The result: a sleek yet girly mixture of asymmetrical cuts, sheer dresses, sequinned tops, tapered pants, peplum tops, floaty florals, cropped slouchy embellished sweaters, long skirts, embellished tank tops and handkerchief skirts. Fabulous use of tone-on-tone with pops of color in juicy shades of citrus. My favorite accessory: the cross-body pearl necklaces with bright tassels!
