"Safe" is coming

Fashion designer Rebecca Turbow to send new standard clothes to from Brooklyn.

We've been fans of Brooklyn-based conceptual fashion designer Rebecca Turbow for years. Known for her space-age, mod-influenced designs and her signature look (she dressed in a palette of exclusively turquoise and white for over six years), Turbow recently transitioned into a new colorway of sleek grey and silver. Her Fall 2008 collection, available now at her online store, features sophisticated basics like a Button Up Swing Coat ($398) and versatile bags accented with her new custom gumdrop print. Men shouldn't feel left out either, they'll love the visual pun of the Safety in Numbers T-Shirt ($28).

And there are more good things to come from Safe. We recently caught an advance peek at the Spring 2009 lookbook and were blown away by the gorgeous (and at times humorous) images shot by Tom Hines. Turbow's modern designs make for a striking contrast with the furnishings of a classically sumptuous-looking Upper East Side apartment and satisfy both our fashion addiction as well as our penchant for "real estate porn." With luxurious fabrics and exquisite construction, the collection's little pops of yellow punctuate her renowned grey and silver colors — like sunshine through the clouds. - www.coolhunting.com text by Letizia Rossi
