Rebecca Minkoff can't seem to get enough of the Americana theme that ran through her Spring collection. For pre-fall, the designer looked to twenties and thirties workwear, with a nod to one of the era's most revolutionary women, Amelia Earhart. "She obviously loved to travel, and she was so fierce," the designer said. There was an aviator air to the clothes, particularly a leather-and-distressed-cotton jacket with gold clasps and a cropped "top gun" coat in the same material. Outerwear is a strong suit for Minkoff.
As for the pants to wear with all of those great toppers, a wide-leg silhouette in a stone-hued leather with crystal embellishments down the side will suit the designer's pal Leandra Medine, a.k.a. The Man Repeller. For the rest of the Minkettes, she had subtler styles in a graphic Earhart print and a custom jacquard. Minkoff continues to harness the power of social media. She's named a new pony-hair-and-stingray cross-body bag the Elle, after blogger Bryan Boy's grandmother. Wear-now separates like a coral pleated miniskirt and an asymmetrical button-down tank rounded out the range. Overall, Minkoff had a lot to offer.
