Monday Muse: Rebecca Minkoff Goes to Marfa for Resort 2017

Before Marfa, Texas, became something of a brand of its own, spanning everything from new-age sojourns and boutique hotels to bath and body products with an artsy Texas lean, it was a stop on a road trip that that Cali-born Rebecca Minkoff took for some inspiration. Along with L.A.-based stylist Ilaria Urbinati, the duo took a stop in Marfa 10 years ago — and the spirit of the town has stuck with Minkoff.

Think of it as a laid-back take on Coachella-style festival dressing. After all, boho styles and gauzy fabrics don’t ever go out when you’re talking about desert environs. But prairie dresses, eyelet accents and a color palette that leaned towards sun-faded hues were definite nods to Marfa and its one-of-a-kind style and attitude.

Minkoff didn’t have a resort show or a presentation. The fashion press got a first look at the collection through a lookbook, because as a designer that’s definitely embraced the digital age and the see-now, buy-now attitudes towards shopping, she’s got so much on offer that she could only show a sampling of her resort goods. So, while the lookbook showcased standout pieces like a bell-sleeved frock and plenty of accessories, there are over 200 more pieces that’ll be revealed in-season.

And while the snap-front miniskirts, ditzy-floral blouses and sarape-inspired tunics are sure to inspire plenty of #OOTD snaps, it’s news to no one that bags and accessories are what the Minkoff label is built on. In those categories, shoppers will find plenty of tassels, Southwestern studs and detailing and retro appliqués. And with each bag available in plenty of on-trend shades, multiple sizes and each bearing a wallet-friendly price, it’s easy to snag a piece (or two) even if you’re not a devoted Minkette. A Western boot looked made for pairing with just about everything — and it’s certainly in the runnings for the very first thing that’ll sell out.
