LifestyleStyle Rebecca Taylor Navajo collection launches By Melissa Kravitz email@example.com Updated January 19, 2016 5:57 PM Print Share fbShare Tweet Email Rebecca Taylor has a new, somewhat questionable collection out for pre-spring. The Navajo collection, said to be inspired by artist Simon Beck, who uses snow as his canvas to make artwork in nature, is not made out of snow, but rather dry clean-only silk, cotton and tencel. Conversations about cultural appropriation in fashion have been ongoing, as international brands like Topshop and H&M have been criticized and even pulled merchandise after being called out. The Navajo Nation filed a lawsuit against Urban Outfitters in 2012 after the retailer branded garments and accessories using the Navajo name without permission. Was Navajo really the way to go for New Zealand born, New York based designer Rebecca Taylor? Check out some of the collection, now available.
