Rebecca Minkoff Fall 2012

When & where: Friday, February 10 at 3 p.m., the Theatre, Lincoln Center
Runway recap: There are designers who feel the need to make a Big Statement about fashion every season, and then there are designers like Rebecca Minkoff who just want to give their loyal clientele some good clothes to wear. So her collection didn't entirely reinvent the wheel, but I'm okay with that, because there was so much good stuff coming down the runway: bright red, orange, yellow, blue, and purple pants and dresses, generously shaped coats (some with sequined sleeves), and a printed maxi shirtdress that I absolutely must have. (Finding oneself shopping from the runway is almost always a good thing.) And in case you were wondering, yes, the bags and shoes look stellar as well, with brightly colored booties and interesting new treatments for her ever-popular Morning After Bag. 
Bonus points: Rapper Theophilus London performed during the show and cavorted with the models, reminding us that fashion doesn't always have to be so serious.
