A Rebecca Taylor piece (or a few) always seem to make it onto our must-have wish list season after season. Something about the way she magically turns her flirty feminine designs into fresh modern ones always results in the perfect balance–never too cutesy, never too much edge, the design scale stays level. For example, check out this drool-worthy bag from her Resort collection. Talk about perfecting the study of contrasts and juxtaposing elements. The old school shape and soft ice blue-grey color seems to act as the perfect compliment to that in-your-face-acid green whip stitch detail. And that fabulously flirty bow? Well, it’s just another reason we swoon.
