Tanya Taylor Pre-Fall 2019

“Lisbon is the coolest, it’s like a melting pot of all of your different cities.…It doesn’t feel like it’s fully finalized its identity, which I love, because you’re still discovering and it’s not like every tourist is at the same place,” designer Tanya Taylor said of her first trip to Portugal in August. From her travels, Taylor brought back the breezy, coastal spirit and infused it into her latest pre-fall collection.
Shapes felt clean and fresh, cut slimmer with flirty open-back details or slightly puffed sleeves in place of the anticipated abundance of ruffles. “Everything just felt so easy and soft and kind of feminine,” Tanya described of Portugal, which she infused into her line à la a palette of classic blues (from navy to “minty-turquoise”) and purples in various artful floral prints, as well as black-and-white polka dots, on easy dresses and flowy skirts. Newness came through knits: electric lime pointelle and chunky, striped terry-cloth-matching cardigans and little cropped sweaters, sporty knit dresses.
Taylor rounded out the collection with a group of red and blue surfer étoile printed pieces inspired by her time at Gigi’s Beach Bar in the Portuguese Algarve region. The collection embodied Taylor description of her girl:

Tanya Taylor RTW Resort 2019

Designer Tanya Taylor is well-known for her use of color and painterly prints, so it is easy to see how her resort collection was inspired by two recent exhibitions, one by David Hockney at MoMA and one by Josef Albers at the Guggenheim. Color and graphic prints are home base for Taylor, but for resort she wanted to zero in on the idea of “key pieces” for her customer.
Taylor’s “key pieces” are anything but basic and come in the form of a deep purple mohair sweater with boatneck collar; a pony skin leopard print sheath dress; a printed long-sleeve pajama-style button-up dress with white piping; soft hammered satin dresses and skirts in saturated green and purple prints, and gray cashmere sweaters with sheer black lace cutout details.
Taylor sees these clothes as seasonless — meant to be mixed and matched, and to her point, she blended in easy flowy blouses and dresses in neutral black and cream prints and a few denim pieces like overalls that felt like a fresh way to cut all the color.

Tanya Taylor Pre-Fall 2017

Vivid hand-painted prints are essential to Tanya Taylor’s design process but lately she’s been expanding into more textural surface treatments, such as embroidery and crystal embellishments, as well as knits. For her vibrant, cheery pre-fall collection she channeled her exuberant color into bird embroideries on voluminous summer dresses, an embroidered leather dress and striped knit tanks layered over embroidered men’s shirts. “We did a lot of layering men’s shirts and dresses,” Taylor said. “I’ve been wearing it a lot and it’s so easy to separate the pieces.” Speaking of separates, pants are a big part of her business. Here, a wide-leg Army green style, slashed up the leg with embroidered trim offered a slightly masculine counterpoint to all of her feminine blouses.
