Reed Krakoff Pre-Fall 2013

TEXTURED SIMPLICITY
New York: Rubberized lace, plush fur, slick leather, pony skin printed with a snake motif. These were among the sensuous materials Reed Krakoff used for his Pre-Fall collection. He wisely opted for simple separates, in keeping with his minimalist aesthetic, which allowed the luxe fabrics to have the attention they deserved. There were variations on the split hem skirt, which Krakoff has played with over the past few seasons. He also offered elegant menswear-inspired coats, woven raglan-sleeved tees, and sporty blouson jackets. In an interview about the collection, the designer spoke about uniforms. The offering did have the repetitious quality associated with uniform dressing, but the compelling textures made every piece feel exciting and new.
