Backstage before her show, Tracy Reese told Fashion Bomb TV, “[For Fall 2013] I’m celebrating New York women as I see them. I wanted to celebrate individuality on the runway. So there are a lot of looks that are just that mood, that feeling, where you’re like just walking home in the middle of the night and you know, cool outfit, in your own world. Strong and confident.” Fittingly, Reese’s latest foray vibrated with urban cool, with coats, pants, and jackets in loose, effortlessly chic silhouettes.
Reese’s typical pretty frocks were given a bit of edge by mixing romantic details with animal prints.
Tracy admitted to always designing a few pieces with brand fan Michelle Obama in mind. To whit, Reese offered a slew of perfectly prim frocks, fit for a First Lady.
My personal favorites included her more feral prints, along with her all black looks and scintillating shifts:
