There are certain designers I gravitate towards for their unique sense of style, ability to deliver something new and exciting each season, and when the designer themself feels relateable. Rebecca Minkoff is one of those designers (maybe it’s her cute tweets?). I’ve written about her maybe more than any other designer here on WIT & Whimsy and have had to miss her press presentations in New York so many times (damn geographical challenges) so I was thrilled when I was able to get in to see what she has in store for Spring 2011.
The presentation in The Box was packed, but showcased a collection that was fresh and modern, but did not stray from Rebecca’s signature aesthetic of hardware details, pretty neutrals and luxurious fabrics.
P.S- I must apologize for the grainy photos at the end as sadly my camera died just a few minutes into the show. Lame!

Dreamy leather jackets
Pretty bags with interesting detail
Fabulous shoes that will debut next Spring

Loving this little floral skirt number
Rebecca Minkoff is not a designer I would normally think to go to for work wear, but this dress was my favorite piece of apparel she showed. Other pieces of hers also would pair beautifully with a pencil skirt.
What a great satchel, right? Also, it’s paired with my favorite pair of shoes from the upcoming debut shoe collection from Rebecca.
Actresses Michelle Trachtenberg and Shenea Grimes (who has been a guest blogger on the RM site, Minkette) came out to support Rebecca at the show
Rebecca (who is nothing short of gorgeous) chats with the gals about the pieces she showcased.
