Ever since Rebecca King began showcasing her designs a few years ago at Market Collective, we knew she would be someone to watch out for. She impressed with her vision and aesthetic. Her pieces are distinct and interesting, while also retaining a classic touch – which is no easy feat.
It has now been a decade since King embarked on her fashion design career and much has changed in this time. When she first began, she couldn’t quite decide what her favourite colour was, let alone what her design inspirations were. But it’s clear now, as she gravitates towards military and equestrian looks, tailored cuts, luxe textures, and her favourite design element, the pocket.
She’s currently focusing on expanding her trademark outerwear to feature sweater coats, which not only diversify her line, but allow for versatility for the customer.
Here are five looks we love:
A beautiful pop of colour is exactly what most of us need once the fall and winter seasons comes along again. The best part is that this sweater is something that can be worn year-round, especially due to the bright hue. The black piping adds a great architectural element and much flair to the over-piece, while the length makes it versatile to pair with pants, leggings or varying skirt lengths.
This two-toned scoop neck sweater is basic yet sleek. This is the perfect piece to play with accessories, like a few strands of necklaces, or a funky scarf, to complete your look.
What stood out about King and her designs right from the start is the architectural element to her designs. She has a knack for layering and combining pieces together to form a silhouette that’s interesting and fashion-forward, while still managing to keep them perfect to wear every day and for any occasion.
King’s love of military-inspired fashion is seen throughout her collections. The button details, piping, colour and fabrication choices are all made that much better when incorporated with a cut that is distinctly and uniquely King.
This collection is full of beautiful neutrals that will translate well not only into any given wardrobe, but can also be easily taken into various seasons. The rounded front hemline, front pockets and chunky cowl neck take a classic piece to the next level of edgy and interesting. This oatmeal sweater can be worn three ways: as shown, rolled up into a collar, flipped up as a hood and placed down as a cape. It also comes in brown and charcoal black.
