First Looks


Beautiful backstage photographs of a few of the first looks from the Spring 2015 Runway show from photographer Carlotta Manaigo. I love the ethereal quality her photographs capture, the love of light, the beauty of fragility.

Shiny and New

To celebrate our 10-year anniversary in a neighborhood we love, Nolita, NYC, we decided to refresh the store with a modern makeover.  Designer Serge Becker worked closely with Rebecca to create the original charming space with a cozy, neighborhood feel — a place to pop by with the dog or gaze out to the garden in back — for the redesign, Visual Manager Erin Ryder made magic happen:

The intention with the design of the store was to strip down the space, creating a chic, modern ‘blank slate’ more or less, which allows each piece of clothing to shine. Our clothing is quite detailed, and intricate, so I didn’t want to detract from this element — this is what makes our pieces special.

With this considered, the store still needed to feel warm, and have the personality of the neighborhood, with a certain direction that makes it obvious you are in a Rebecca Taylor store as soon as you walk in. To imbue the essence of our brand into the space, I worked with a local Brooklyn-based artist to create custom display pieces, made of cement and crystalized rock salt. The first time I saw other works by these artists at a show early this year, I knew they would be perfect for our stores. The subdued intricacy and shimmer, paired with the a natural, yet bold materiality made for an ideal fit at Nolita in particular.

Boerum House & Home

Pop on over to a pop-up shop celebrating Brooklyn designers and artists, including - if I may boast - my husband Wayne Pate. His art is featured on the gallery wall, and the entire shop is wonderfully curated.  An oasis of tasteful design.

Philippe Baudelocque

While working on the Fall 2014 Collection, I was on an inspirational holiday in Paris and came across the work of graffiti artist Philippe Baudelocque. I love the beautiful mix of graphic patterns and the appearance of multi-dimensional textures.

I had known of his work before and considered it fate and destiny that I’d happen to come across it in its natural habitat, the street — actually quite lucky as the work is created with chalk so it is transient. This is lovely, the thought of creating something temporary, and being able to let go.

Lucien Clergue

I love the light and shadows, the tension and tanquility, in these high-contrast black and white photos by French photographer Lucien Clergue.

Reflections

I really love this photo series by Austrian couple Verena Michelitsch and Tobias Van Schneider—- beautiful, fragile yet strong. They compose these photographs from found plastics, foil, plexiglass. I admire their creativity and resourcefulness!
