Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear
February 12, 2018
Tanya Taylor looked to Hannah Höch and Suzanne Duchamp—two female artists from the Dada movement—for inspiration this season. “They were really redefining femininity at that time,” she said. “I think there’s something beautiful and brave about that and parallel to what I want to do now.” Taylor’s Fall offering was at once sophisticated and fun, imbued with her signature girlishness and mixture of prints, colors, and patterns. Taylor’s a new mom, so she wanted to emphasize ease. “I made things a little sharper and a bit more minimal—nothing’s fussy,” she said. “Having a four-month-old makes me want to wear clothes I don’t have to think too hard about but still make me feel powerful.” Menswear patterns on pants and coats felt posh, while polka dots and vibrant floral prints lent the collection a whimsical quality, especially when presented among tall orange sticks that resembled a colorful, abstract forest.
