Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in NY is already beginning to unfold – yeeps!! We’re already squealing at all of the invites coming our way, and Tracy Reese is hands down one of our favorites. Last season’s runway show in September left us speechless. Just when we thought it couldn’t get any more beautiful, we received word on inspiration for this fall’s collection (we’re glad to see metallics stick around…). Here it is straight from the designer’s mouth (er, fingertips?)!
“Fall 2011 unfolds in rich hues, sculptural shapes and interesting textural combinations. Each look has some point of brilliance – a shot of metallic, antique copper and silver, or a vibrant pop of raspberry, aqua or amber – breathing new life into muted neutral tones of toffee, black, brown and gray. Tactile pairings and more voluminous silhouettes enhance three-dimensionality; a scarf-cape is paired with a pleated maxi skirt in rich curry, with a jade clutch for a color burst. Graphic and floral prints remain strong for the season, adding a spark of individuality to fall ensembles.” — designer Tracy Reese
