Rebecca Taylor might be known for ultra-feminine clothes, but she really wants to keep pushing things forward. "The customer has followed me every step of the way," the designer said. "She's getting more experimental." For Resort, Taylor is liking the look of updated leisurewear and showed on-trend items such as sporty bombers and sweatshirts cut from a quilted matelassé, as well as easy leather track pants. She toughened up some of her signature girly-ness with graphic lace shift dresses worn over cool bandeaux and snug tweed jackets decked out in nailhead studs. Other pretty-but-not-too-precious standouts were painted leather floral biker jackets and vests (lined in soft jersey) paired with matching silk separates. The total look, as Taylor pointed out, "was like camouflage—if you're hanging out in the botanical gardens."
