Fashion 2011 Trend: REBECCA MINKOFF RESORT 2012Young designers looking to build theirbusinesses could learn a thing or two fromRebecca Minkoff. One can see the focus put intothe brand. The collection was full of go-tosummery pieces over which the loyal Minkoffcustomer can toss a leather jacket whentemperatures drop; there’s a cool bomber inlaser-cut suede(not pictured) that should fit thebill. A sienna orange striped wrap dress thatlooks like a modern sari cinched with a utilitarianleather belt was among the highlights, but thedesigner’s personal faves were the allover lacelooks, specifically an aqua minidress paired witha matching silk shawl-lapel blazer (not pictured).The challenge for Minkoff was how to makethe lace less girly. Then her luxury handbagsincluding clutches, shoulder bags and totes, were
toughened up this time around with gold spikesand studs.Pictured above are two Rebecca Minkoff dressfrom the 2012 Resort show.
