Rebecca Turbow's 'Safe Clothes' are what design should be about. Turbow came up with the concept for her mod, space-age clothing line while still in school and has followed her fancy with a passion ever since. She designs clothes that will protect the wearer both physically and emotionally from the outside world with circles covering vital organs and the use of durable, extra soft fabrics.
Her early focus on turquoise and white has evolved to include more muted tones in the Fall 2006 collection (along with the addition of some great coats), but the rules of safety and strong geometric forms have remained the same. Here's hoping the future will bring more from our Great Protector - I for one would like a Safe Sofa and maybe a necklace or two.
