Tanya Taylor presents sophomore collection at NYFW Spring 2013

I first met Tanya Taylor in Paris last season when she presented her debut collectionto Europe’s most discerning fashion editors.  Since then, her instant success comes as no surprise. We couldn’t wait to see her sophomore collection.

taged at the Museum of Modern Art, the Tanya Taylor Spring Summer 2013 presentation brought billowy, crisp separates in punchy pastels, which are sure to be a staple come next summer.  Models bedecked in head scarves showcased peek-a-boo cutouts, separates in sequined florals, and crisp white suiting.  Bralette crop tops were abundant, effortlessly styled with flouncy circle skirts and wide trousers.  Tanya Taylor offered pieces for both day and night, combining tailored suits with feminine frocks and elongated, sophisticated skirts.  Color blocking was still a prominent trend, but Taylor interpreted and updated it with a unique dot print.  Her use of coral seemed to be the most striking out of the saturated color palette employed, a vibrant peachy-orange presented in both swingy silhouettes and oversized, boxy suiting.  The venue was a perfect backdrop to Taylor’s Spring presentation, complementing her latest collection.
