Tracy Reese Spring 2016 made a rainbow connection at Art Beam gallery on Sept. 13. — the explosion of color and patterns bowled the audience over. See the looks right here!
At Tracy Reese, colorful silks and huge florals popped and silver sequins had us ready to party. Fashion Week just got even more crazy cool — check out all of the designs in the gallery!
Talk about a fun collection: on Tracy’s runway, floral patterned shifts mingled with funky translucent rain ponchos, and silver glitter and sequins appeared everywhere from high-heeled boots to sheer minidresses. I can always count on Tracy to deliver a show that’s not just cool to watch, but to design a collection that also seems relatively accessible.
Spring is always pretty to look at, and this show was no different — flowing silks in hues of turquoise, and sports bras in black and lime green paraded down the runways and had me already dreaming about next spring and summer. The best part is that Tracy’s clothes look great on both the celeb set and us mere mortals — they’re versatile designs that will work everywhere, from the poolside to an al fresco dinner. Her clothes know how to have fun — just like real humans — and they moved with the models rather than constricting them.
The front row was, as always, well-attended by the fashion elite including Sarah Jessica Parker, who designed all of the shoes for the show and didn’t linger when the show ended (“I have to go backstage and work!”). Saturday Night Live‘s Sasheer Zamata was spotted, as well as 90210M‘s Jessica Lowndes.
Tracy Reese’s Spring 2016 collection is luxe and lust-worthy, but ultimately very wearable. Most of the boots and shoes had a comfortable, chunky heel, and the fabrics were never constricting. While we’d all be so lucky to jet away to a resort and relax in head-to-toe silk, Tracy’s designs at least inspire us to mix a little bit of color into our very dark New York wardrobes. Lesson learned!
