New York’s go-to designer for dressed-down chic, Rebecca Taylor, is launching her first ever eveningwear collection. Called the ‘Rebecca Taylor Black Tie Collection’, the range comprises of delicately detailed dresses with more elaborate embellishments and luxurious fabrications than ever before, something that Taylor says her cosmopolitan customer needs.
“We’re already dressing the busy woman who needs pieces to take her from work to night, so it’s exciting to offer her options for event dressing that feels modern,” the designer told British Vogue. “The pieces are more elevated with richer fabrics and couture-like beading. With this collection I was really able to let go creatively.“
Taylor‘s main line has undergone a subtle makeover in recent seasons, moving away from the colourful party dresses that made her name to include cooler separates and outerwear that bring her closer to New York contemporaries like Alexander Wang and Prabal Gurung. And while a number of celebrities will probably have their eyes on a piece or two, Taylor herself has a few stars in mind that she’d be happy to dress.
“I think Rashida Jones and Kirsten Dunst would look amazing in the dresses,” the designer said. “They are able to wear gowns and still maintain a cool factor.“
Priced from £395.00, the collection will be available from Rebeccataylor.com, as well as from selected UK stockists.
