BASKET CASE: Designer Tracy Reese has joined forces with Clos du Bois to create a picnic basket fit for a fashionista and a foodie.
Incorporating a classic floral print from her collection, Reese has lined the interior of the wicker basket, which holds two bottles of Clos du Bois wine, two wine glasses, two napkins matching the interior fabric, a corkscrew and a bottle stopper.

“I totally love wine but I’m not a heavy drinker,” Reese told WWD. “But who doesn’t enjoy a great picnic?”
The basket, which includes brown leather handles, brass furnishings and a pink leather patch that says: “Clos du Bois Chic Picnique by Tracy Reese,” will retail for $135 and be available at Reese’s Meatpacking District store in New York starting March 1. It can also be purchased at closdubois.com.
