Reed Krakoff F/W 2013
A DARKER SHADE OF MINIMALISM
New York: For fall, Reed Krakoff stuck with his winning minimalist formula, but the murky olives, inky blues, anthracite greys, and black tones suggested a more somber mood than in seasons past. The sense of luxuriousness, however, was strong as ever. Plush velvet, lustrous leather, liquid satin, and croc skin were among the materials Krakoff employed this season. Where snakeskin was the motif of the designer’s Pre-Fall collection, croc was the pattern for fall. Photorealistic images of the luxe skin were printed on slim pants, zip-up sweaters, and his signature split-hem skirts. A pair of standout shearling jackets and a handful of sporty, raglan-sleeved sweaters were casual enough to make it all feel approachable, yet sophisticated enough to be of a piece with the other looks. –Joanna Manganaro
