“Fluidity against structure” is how Reed Krakoff described this collection. The designer has played with and evolved the concept for several seasons and here he contrasted strong mannish shoulders on jacquard tweed coats with ruching and python taping on dresses, often with asymmetric hems. One dress came in an abstract feather print with side-pleating for movement, while lightweight sweatshirts, some with surface elements like a hand-painted ponyskin front panel, added to the men’s wear feel.
The accessories ranged from snakeskin Chelsea boots to a new perforated version of Krakoff’s Bionic bag. He also previewed looks from an upcoming collaboration with J.M. Weston, including some cool chunky-heel loafers that come in either leather or python.
