Citing Photographs of the great Master Fashion Photographer, Deborah Turbeville, Rebecca Minkoff's Spring 2015 collection took the less sultry, disturbing elements of Turbeville's work out of the Equation and created a Lighthearted and Playful Collection full of Colour and Saucy Attitude. The First Act of this Steamy play (when Turbeville is invoked, there's gonna be some steam!) was a little Wan and a bit too Cutesy Girlish to resonate with any real force, by Exit No. 10 though, things were beginning to take shape. From that point on, The looks grew stronger. They never really solidified into anything more than Fluff, but it was Pretty Fluff.
Minkoff showed Fresh Stripes and Denim looks as well as playful Colour combinations that gave the the collection a Slightly 70's Boho vibe and with the Floppy Jodie Foster "Taxi Driver" hats and Floaty dresses, that vibe was Further reinforced. The throwaway Gimmick of the 3-D Floral Finale was notable not for it being effective but more so for being quite a Yawn Inducing Trick that only inspired Minkoff Acolytes and was approached with about as much seriousness as a J-Pop song! Much more interesting were the White Lace pieces that appeared beforehand, especially the long Lace Halter gown that was a True Beauty.
Minkoff's show didn't do much to get the juices flowing, one could say it was a Pleasant Distraction. Saving that, it lacked any sense of Force or real memorable interest. These clothes will appease her loyalists, but in most circles will be quickly forgotten and discarded.
