It was the name of her flagship handbag, "The Morning After," which first grabbed our attention back in 2006. Now nearly four years later, Rebecca Minkoff, who we had once referred to as an "up-and-comer worth watching," has taken center stage, proving to be a favorite among today's fashion-forward set.
Quick to recognize the quality and overall design aesthetic, I, being the self-proclaimed handbag snob that I am, snatched up my first Rebecca Minkoff: an oversized Royal Tote with gold hardware.
And while I am always partial to handbags, I have to say that when the designer introduced her new line of apparel and accessories, I had extremely high expectations.
Well, I'm happy to report that Rebecca has exceeded my expectations. The designer's Spring 2011 collection features a playful line of women's ready-to-wear and footwear, a sophisticated array of men's carryalls and wallets, and of course, a stunning assortment of leather handbags and accessories.
