Rebecca Taylor Resort 2022

·1 min read

Steven Cateron’s resort collection for Rebecca Taylor, or as the brand refers to itself now, “Rebecca,” once again displayed pretty-but-not-cutesy, refined fashions. Diving deeper into the brand’s redefined romanticism, the creative director continued to infuse ’60s nods in both daywear and occasionwear (or as Cateron described it, “moments of decadence” for holiday) while building out the label’s growing assortment of novelty separates (once again strong in outerwear and knits).

The look: A slight nod to equestrian style for day and romantic moments for evening; knubby, artisanal knitwear continued to bridge both categories. In addition, the collection’s (mostly) warm palette was influenced by the colors of vintage makeup advertisements.

Quote of note: “A small nostalgia found in ’60s fabrics — wool sateen, dense crepe, leather, ornate sweaters — transforms into a cinematic interpretation of futurism, she nods once at the driver, they push forward into a new, more decadent era,” collection notes read.

Key pieces: Evening “moments of decadence,” i.e.: a black netted tulle frock styled with a plush, cropped shearling and leather jacket with artisanal details or airy tank dress and capelet with hand-embroidered ostrich feathers; buttery leather dresses and trousers; new floral printed mesh separates, which Cateron described as channeling a bit of ’90s Gaultier; knubby “3D” knits (a cream sleeveless vest or cabernet-tone sweater with blush tulle skirt), and airy, sheer blouses.

The takeaway: Overall, the collection offered a cohesive wardrobe built from modern, refreshing brand codes which Cateron has built into the label over the past year (and a few months).
