Runway Review: Loaded with layering separates, clean lines and chic faux furs that were right in step with the seasons emergent trends
For her Fall 2010 Collection Rebecca Taylor traded out her favored florals, floaty, flirty shapes, dresses and candy floss colors for a slightly more modern, refined feeling line-up of animal prints, tailored tweeds, sweater knits and earth tones.
The result was loaded with layering separates, clean lines and chic faux furs that were right in step with the seasons emergent trends.
One such look featured a bum grazing buttonless cardigan with a ruffled lapel over a button down “grandad shirt” in oyster and ecru respectively and a simple camel a-line mini.

A sage wool boucle mini dress came without embellishment of any kind but for graphic seaming, structured shoulders and killer boots in charcoal stretch suede so high that there wasn’t a peek of flesh anywhere.
These boots, (which appeared in a majority of the looks) had the look skinnies and anchored easy to love wardrobe go-tos like clean-lined faux leopard and jaguar dusters over crisp button downs long enough for the young-ones to forgo bottoms of any kind.

All in all it was a strong showing and Taylor’s decision to slightly pare down some of the prettiness worked in her favor.
The restrained point-of-view for fall 2010 was just enough of a change of pace to refresh and entice her loyalists and most likely lure in a new pack of fans. –Andrea Perini, VagabondNYC
