Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2012
Rebecca Minkoff debuted a Spring collection today that will surely be sought after by a bevy of downtown girls. As DJ Mia Moretti mixed the soundtrack, the crowd — which included guests Sophia Bush, Chris Pine, Jessica Szohr, Alexis Bledel, and Michelle Trachtenberg — seemed mesmerized by Minkoff's "Desert-Love" collection featuring a sun-drenched color palette. Romantic billowy blouses, louche print trousers, sheer maxi dresses, and lace tops showed Minkoff's signature romantic touch, while leather separates and cutout dresses added edge. Minkoff's accessories collection was also in full force as the models held on to colorful clutches and chain bags. Down below, we spied a range of cutout booties and sweet lace-up sandals. However, the icing on the cake came when the crowd went crazy for the Man Repeller's Leandra Medine as she walked down the runway wearing a pair of black leather shorts and silk blouse. All while filming the moment on her own camera phone, of course. More details from the collection below.
