With a combination of storybook charm and alluring mystery, designer Tanya Taylor enticed viewers last Friday with her fall/winter 2016 collection. Shown at the Swiss Institute in SoHo, the collection was presented against textured backgrounds designed to interact with the pieces. Toeing the line between indoor and outdoor, artificial and organic, Taylor’s collection played with the idea of a girl flowering beyond the confines of her entrapments.
Velvet vinework wrapped around leather and pleated chiffon, accompanied by lace and embroidered Swarovski crystals, to create an ornate floral fantasy. Matching leggings complimented a black-and-red double slit skirt, which later reappeared as tailored pants; tiny bouquets dappled matching dresses and a pair of leather gloves; and lightweight dresses drew inspiration from origami patterns, shown alongside a mountain of paper cranes.
