#NYFW Spring 2013: Rebecca Minkoff

Ombre took on new form thanks to Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2013. Inspired by 1950s and 60s California captures from iconic photographer Slim Aarons, Minkoff took us on a nostalgic journey west with laid-back, leisurely looks that played up flirty florals, plaid, and a bit of biker chic.

Minkoff returns us to the days of westward Bohemia with her fringed hemlines, retro prints in cobalt and burnt red. But the modern, uptown girl was duly represented in girly accents, summery floral tweeds a gorgeous white suit number.

And quite the interesting mix of star power peppered the front row: Lauren Conrad, Kristin Chenoweth, Leandra Medine, Shenae Grimes, Peter Brand II and apparent fashion wannabe Ryan Lochte.
