Tracy Reese gets playful in bold color, prints
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - Tracy Reese is feeling optimistic, if not downright festive, for fall.
Bold juniper green, lame in gold and violet and a tomato orange lit up her runway Sunday at New York Fashion Week in a mix for just about every occasion in pants, dresses, skirts, sweaters and coats long and short.
Reese heavily embellished sleeveless and short-sleeve cocktail dresses with metallic beading front and back. She put feminine fringe on loose, cozy sweaters and combination bowler-baseball caps on the heads of her models.
Much of her outerwear was a crowd pleaser, including a shimmery gold coat belted at the waist. She did another in lemon yellow and a third was cropped with a feminine peplum.
Reese had fun with jacquards, enlarging one in black and white in a cropped jacket and mini skirt. She used colored jacquards and leaf motifs throughout.
The collection, she said in her notes, is intended as "colorful, confident attire for navigating the urban landscape."
