What makes Rebecca Minkoff’s S/S ’15 collection especially intriguing isn’t just this hat that looks like it’s melting or the occasional appearance of fringe, but the fact that it was inspired by one of the greatest fashion photographers, Deborah Turbeville.
For those unfamiliar, Turbeville is one who transformed the fashion photography industry. What was merely pictures of people in stylish clothes were turned into art with new perspectives, angles, and other artistic techniques that were normally not used in photography. She appreciated the natural process of aging and destruction of images however small or large they were; she also let the subjects be themselves instead of focusing on clothes themselves, which is what made her work more fine art than commercial. Result was an entirely new world of fashion photography which has had a huge influence ever since her debut in the 70′s. Turbeville’s work has soul, and for that, it’s more than photography. It’s an intimate moment drawn from interactions between humans and clothes captured at the highest point.
Turbeville’s unique approach to subjects is reinterpreted in this collection through feminine, breezy dresses in soft pastels complemented with romantic silhouettes.
Among the sea of eye catching accessories which were a crucial part of the collection, indisputable standout was the hat, which we can all appreciate as women who seek both style and functionality. Because after all, who doesn’t want freedom from sunblock?
And this pale pastel blue (or call it lavender) is so handsome looking next to that bright red. A must-try combination for the coming season.
This, I need. Anything in mint is coverable for spring but a one-shoulder-anything is looking mighty trendy at the moment.
Jumpsuit is cooler (literally, too) with built-in A/C.
