Tracy Reese is one of my all-time favorite designers and one of the most popular and successful in the industry. As a woman of color, she is constantly inspiring me to do bigger and better and her designs are a perfect blend of femininity, whimsy and functionality. I just bought a dress from her Plenty line a couple of weeks ago and I cannot wait to wear it during Fashion Week.
Tracy is giving us a sneak peek of her Spring 2012 collection which debuts on September 11th at the tents at Lincoln Center. Beautiful feminine details, voluminous silhouettes and an array of springtime hues are what she has in store.
“A feminine yet relaxed mood is achieved through the juxtaposition of romance and sport, comfort and flattery. Subtle hues of khaki and blush mixed with pastel shades of waterfall, misty blue and aqua tears gradually intensify to deep saturated tones and neon brights, making a bold splash for the transition into summer. A drapey culotte jumpsuit in waterfall, complimented with drawstring waist and seductive neckline details, pairs with a lemon zest hat and printed platform sandals to embody the relaxed mood of the season.”
So excited to see the collection! Visit www.tracyreese.com for more information and to whet your appetite, here are some of my favorite looks from the Resort 2012 collection.
