After a 20 year absence from showing in New York, Rebecca Moses returns with a bang. "I love to tell a story...fashion is such a colorful tale", states Ms. Moses and telling a story is exactly what she did. Models posed in front of whimsically illustrated sets that told the story of a fantastical trip through Paris and its environs. This mode of presentation highlighted quite nicely the chicness of the line and gave it a playful quality that reminded us that fashion should be fun. Ms. Moses' philosophy is that we should be "celebrating dressing".
Emphasizing femininity, the line mixes animal prints with dots, florals and stripes in colors ranging from warm opalescent ivories and terra cotta desert tones to peonies, jades, citron, warm mauves, blushes and a touch of black. The collection is a wonderful grouping of mix and match separates and a nice selection of dresses. Wn element of sexiness is also apparent in the line as noted in a sleek black gown with a gorgeous deep exposed back. Silhouettes are as varied as the hemlines, giving a lot of choice to the individual in creating their own style. Ms. Moses' collection is most certainly about lifestyle dressing, with looks that can take you easily from morning through evening.
Above all, the heart of this collection is about being super chic and it delivers on its mission to make fashion a vehicle for self expression.
