Designer Tracy Reese debuted her fall 2014 collection with notables such as Condola Rashad (Romeo & Juliet), Rhonda Ross (Actress), Denise Vasi (“Single Ladies”), Lauren Scala (“Today in New York”), June Ambrose (Stylist) and more in attendance. The Tracy Reese fall 2014 collection draws inspiration from juxtapositions, playing the loud and ecstatic against the pragmatic and quietly complex to create classically modern silhouettes in commanding cloths. The collection takes an intimate look at self-expression, intermixing utility pieces with unique elements that provide pops of personality and spirit. Collection highlights include menswear inspired silhouettes, oversized embroidered sweaters, fringe detailing, gold and gunmetal beading and lamé and heathered tweet knits, anchored by a palette of playful colors that are tempered by neutral, muted tones. A metallic anorak paired with a sexy slip creates an unexpected look that is undeniably modern. Self-expression is perpetuated by collection accents in metallic leathers, ostrich trims and jeweled and feather details.
For the fall 2014 season, Tracy Reese partnered with Tide Pods and the CFDA’s Washable Fashion initiative, which seeks to inspire more designers to create garments using washable fabrics, to design two completely washable looks (looks 8 & 25 in the show)!
