When it comes to feminine and flirty design, Rebecca Taylor has got it in the bag. And lucky for us in the 305, the designer just opened her first boutique in Florida at Aventura Mall (#score).
Awash in neutral tones and warm woods, the 1,400 square foot space is brimming with the brand’s ready-to-wear women’s collection as well as exclusive products and Taylor’s new denim line, La Vie. Here, we rub elbows with Taylor who was recently in town to toast her new store.
