I will always think of Rebecca Turbow as the Teal Girl. Instantly recognizable walking down the street or in the darkened corridors of Misshapes, I first saw Rebecca in 2005, wearing her own designs, which were almost uniformly constructed in bright teal and sparkling white, and looked like something straight out of The Jetsons. Apparently Ms. Turbow wore teal and white exclusively for eight years (!!!). She has since moved on from her teal phase, but maintained her modish style, and her unorthodox approach to color. For her Spring 09 collection of Safe by Rebecca Turbow, Turbow sticks to a 2-color palette of silver grey and yellow in place of the teal and white, while maintaining the same 60's spin, taking inspiration from films like Who Are You Polly Magoo? as well as the styling of Andres Courreges. Still, as the name implies, this collection is a little "safer" than previous ones, focusing on making pieces that are wearable for everyday, all at a very reasonable young designer price, with most pieces available on her web shop. Here are some pieces from her latest collection.
A playful pleat pocketed dress, $250.
The designer herself, wearing one of her instantly recognizable turquoise and white jackets from her Fall 2004 collection. I love this look!!!
