Rebecca Minkoff Spring '13 Collection

Intern LCogs observes the Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2013 collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

Rebecca Minkoff's Spring 2013 collection was inspired by 60's and 70's iconic photographer Slim Aarons and the feeling conveyed in his photos: "Sun-faded canopy stripes, upholstery, tropical wallpapers and fringed hammocks..."

The majority of the collection was tailored loosely to match the relaxed spring/summer feel of the pieces. I thought the best parts of the collection were the colors and patterns. I'm loving Minkoff's theme of combining blues, blacks, and whites throughout most of the ensembles.

I was delighted to see Minkoff's famous handbags on the runway as well. Here's a shot from the show that the designer created as a desktop calendar on her blog.

My personal show experience? This was the first show I attended in the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Theatre venue, and was thrilled by the whole thing, probably because I was so excited about seeing so many celebrities. Here's a photo I took of the front row across from me... I brushed past Bryan Greenberg on my way out after the show and almost died.
