We've seen celebrated designer Tracy Reese offer everything from punk-rock princess with her Fall 2010 collection to 70's laidback luxe with her Spring 2011 collection, all to critical acclaim. For Fall 2011, she returns to her ladylike roots with graphic and floral prints. What's new? She introduces new structured silhouettes in neutral, understated tones characterized by pops of metallic and rich color. Take a look at her inspiration sketch above and a quote below.
“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 3-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,” says designer Tracy Reese.
