Designer Reece Solomon showed off her new line of handbags, Reece Hudson, in a fourth-floor private apartment overlooking Lafayette Street on Thursday. “Last year we had five styles in only one color," said the designer. "But this season, we expanded. I was inspired by Rick Owens' colorways, but I wanted it to be natural.” What is bold is the mixing of materials. “I’m really into textual contrast,” Solomon explained while detailing plans to grow the line even further. "Getting into clothes has been my intent from the start, but that will come when I’m ready.” THE DETAILS: From $800 to $1,440, Castor & Pollux, New York and Switch, Los Angeles.
