WARMLY REFINED
New York: Billy Reid furthered his expansion into womenswear with the F/W 13 season, showing more feminine counterparts to his rugged men’s mainline than ever before. The “warmth with street toughness” Reid cited for the menswear designs spoke to the entire collection, expressed via distressed brown leathers cut into officer coats and a-line skirts as well as an excellent bonded cashmere neoprene jacket. But it wasn’t just outerwear for Fall—the presentation also featured work-appropriate long sleeve dresses cinched at the waist, rose graphic intarsia knits, and a handful of dramatic evening looks rendered in classical, reflective brocade. Centered on a mid-length silhouette and a body-skimming fit in autumnal shades, Reid’s latest had a refined poise well-suited to the fairer sex.—Nina Stotler
