New Zealand-born designer Rebecca Taylor brings downtown style uptown with her store on Madison Ave. Bare stone floors give the space a warehouse feel, while whitewashed plumbing pipes serve as clothes rails and super-8 footage of the latest runway show plays on a flat screen opposite the register. The outpost, the designer’s third in the city, highlights the edgier side of the line—instead of Rebecca Taylor’s traditionally more floral, feminine focus, there are soft python tunics, tweed dresses with leather detailing and sharply tailored silk shirts. Shoppers in need of some stylistic direction can talk to staff members with an eye for strong pairings before heading to the circular changing room tucked in the back, which features soft couches, rugs, bright lights, floor-to-ceiling pine doors and mirrors reminiscent of a dance studio.
