Tracy Reese Spring 2011

Where & When: Monday, September 13 at 1 p.m., the Studio, Lincoln Center
Runway Recap: On Sunday and Monday, a new trend started to emerge as a fun alternative to the rampant minimalism: 1970s. And as soon as Tracy Reese's models bounded down the runway with their center-parted hair, oversized glasses, and floppy hats, it was clear we were in for one groovy trip. Thankfully, however, Reese was restrained with the '70s references--there were ethnic prints and floor-sweeping cutout maxi dresses, but there was also a lot of black, white, and nude to temper the mix. Reese was inspired by the notion of traveling, and a lot of the prints carried a global-chic vibe, but still with her trademark femininity--and accessibility.
Standout Look: For those who turn to Reese for party frocks, there were a lot of great options, including this versatile tribal-print strapless dress that combined a worldly motif with a sweet fit-and-flare shape.
Bonus Points: With a veritable U.N. of models, Reese's show was one of the most diverse I've seen so far this week.
