Exclusive: Rebecca Minkoff Looks to Latin Lovelies for Spring 2014


Looks like Rebecca Minkoff is heading south for the spring.

As Fashion Week approaches, the MAC maven and recent denim designer allowed Glam to get a sneak peek of what she has in store when her Spring 2014 collection hits the runway.

Inspired by Bianca Jagger’s early years, Minkoff looked to the muse’s Nicaraguan upbringing as the jumping off point to the upcoming selections. “Other influential Latin American women across all decades started coming to mind with Frida Kahlo at one end of the spectrum and contemporaries such as Carolina Issa and Alice Dellal at the other,” Minkoff revealed. “The result was American sportswear-inspired pieces with strong Latin American details: bursts of color, saturated prints, rich textures and intricate embroidery.”

As such, the designer even shared a sketch of one of the pieces, a vibrant vest featuring native prints and geometric patterns that will add a lot of pizzazz to any neutral-hued ensemble. Now that we have a peek at what’s in store, we’re already craving more!
