#NYFW: 60 Seconds with Rebecca Taylor
In what felt like the blink of an eye, New York Fashion Week is upon us again! We got up close and personal with today’s established and emerging designers alike. See what Rebecca Taylor had to say when we asked her about Spring 2015, in this season’s “60 Seconds” Q&A.
The Fabulous Report (TFR): What can we expect from your spring collection?
Rebecca Taylor (RT): I was really inspired by imagining the Rolling Stones traveling to India, and the dreamy ideal an Indian pilgrimage conjures – so it’s got a very languid, easy vibe in vibrant colors, with a bit of a rock & roll edge.
TFR: Speaking of designs–if you could only wear one outfit for the rest of your life, what would it be?
RT: I have a pair of Italian cargo pants that I can’t get rid of and am forever patching up, so probably those with a striped tee. It’s sort of my uniform.
TFR: What is the one beauty product you can’t live without?
RT: Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation. Lasts all day!
TFR: Your favorite song of the moment?
RT: I don’t have a particular song right now, but I really enjoy Robyn in the showroom while I’m designing.
TFR: Red or white wine?
TFR: How do you take your coffee?
RT: I don’t – tea, please!
TFR: What’s your guilty pleasure?
RT: Crispy chicken sandwiches from Schnippers (right near the office – it’s a problem!)
TFR: Did you take a vacation this summer? If so where did you go?
RT: I spent most weekends at my home on Shelter Island, so relaxing.
TFR: If you could design for a Disney character– which one would you choose?
RT: Probably one of the characters from “Frozen” because my children would be ecstatic.
TFR: What’s your favorite way to unwind?
RT: Either a glass of wine when I get home from the office, or my post fashion week ritual – a facial or a massage from Soho Sanctuary.
TFR: What’s your favorite restaurant?
RT: My husband and I love the Waverly Inn – such an old school New York charm.
TFR: How will you celebrate the completion of the show?
RT: My staff and I have drinks together right after the show, and then it’s pretty much right back to work, designing the next collection!
Rebecca Taylor will showcase her Spring 2015 collection on Saturday, September 6.
