Rebecca Minkoff: The New Minkette For Spring ’13

You may be wondering…why is Rebecca Minkoff’s latest collection about the NEW Minkette? It could be the fact that she’s sportier, perhaps even somewhat of a tomboy (or as Rebecca says, a “sexy tomboy”), or it’s possible that the new Minkette is Ryan Lochte….because he was at the show Friday afternoon.

It was a PACKED house for Rebecca Minkoff Spring ’13, complete with live music from Tennis mixed with DJ Cassidy. Her collection had a lot of great separates in light colors, floral trim and some pops of bold blue. I loved the idea of a motorcycle vest or a bomber jacket in a pastel or floral print (especially because I personally stick to black with zippers). It gives the silhouette a softer edge that’s perfect for a Minkette (if you haven’t figured this out by now, a “Minkette” is what Rebecca Minkoff calls her customers/followers).

Some looks I wouldn’t mind sporting next Spring: the grey star t-shirt with the blush plaid jacket and white shorts + the blue hoodie with printed shorts….and if I’m feeling daring, the snake print overalls.

As an FYI…I’m trying something different this year and only using professional photos from the shows. I will only write about the ones I attend (unless noted otherwise) but since my pictures always turn out shitty (the models walk a lot faster than you think…and I don’t sit in the photo pit) I think this a much better route. Will include some iPhone photos here and there if deemed worthy.
