Southern Folk Meets Eastern Influences at Billy Reid

New York: Billy Reid’s Southern aesthetic experienced Eastern influences this season in the form of Japanese-inspired florals, indigo colour ways, and elongated silhouettes. The designer continued a similar look as last spring/summer such as tunic-inspired button-ups underneath soft blazers, while emphasizing fresher styles like wide-leg skate shorts and workwear-inspired jackets. However, material still played a crucial role in Reid’s collection with a focus on soft and textural fabrics like cotton toweling and linen-silk blends. –Matt Feniger
