Tracy Reese - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2008
(NEW YORK) The Spring 2008 collection exuded the girlish playfulness which Reese is known for. Full, striped skirts, glossy dresses, and purple bathing suits worn with fringed umbrellas were a little too saccharine sweet and Great Gatsby-esque but the feminine sequins, ruching, and bows looked just right on blue and red cropped jackets worn with high waisted, wide-leg pants and knee-length cocktail skirts. In the end Reese shone best with the more grown-up pieces to which she added her romantic signature touches without seeming overdone- a white poet’s blouse underneath black pants with (a very) high waist and delicate white buttons, an acid orange, low-neck cropped shirt worn with a pastel blue, geometric cocktail skirt, and green cut-out pumps.
