“Easing silhouettes and relaxing a little bit” were Billy Reid’s goals for spring, the designer said backstage before the show. Mission accomplished. He delivered a strong collection of comfortable, uberchic outfits done in lightweight, textured fabrics.
These included beautiful silk-and-linen elongated blazers in subdued checkered and striped patterns paired with fluid short pants and oversize T-shirts for a fresh, cool look. Even the outerwear had an airy feel, with flowy trenchcoats and cotton bomber jackets.
