Minkoff named her colours after planets and other spacey things. A winter white was "Saturn'' and used for a leather motocross jacket. The colour caramel became "eclipse'' for a leather duffel coat. Minkoff put a twist on the colour-blocking trend that has been around now a few seasons by mixing chunks of different textures instead of contrasting hues. Minkoff's soft-line exaggerated shoulder, instead of the aggressive ones that were so popular on the runways a few years ago (and in the 1980s), also turned up elsewhere.
