Out of a smokey fog on Sunday afternoon at ArtBeam, complete with oversized sunglasses, Monster headphones and platform oxfords came the most glorious sight. A Tracy Reese coat with bolero style fur gracing the upper portion, a black and cream patterned bodice and extra wide cream fur at the bottom with a black dye pattern coming up the front to a symmetrical point near the natural waist. Just breathtaking.
The theme for this Fall Winter 2015 collection from Tracy Reese focused on the urban woman or “urban warrior princesses’ as Tracy herself told us, hence the Monster Headphones to serenade you as you practically stomp down the streets of New York. With each passing look the energy in the room increased tremendously as Tracy took us through an all too familiar day for many urban women here in New York City where a number of looks or outfits are all needed on the same day.
From formal evening wear, to outwear, to everything in between Tracy left no stone unturned. Fabric and detail choices varied and because of this fact we loved everything she put together in this collection. Like the black vegan leather trench with studded accents on both shoulders, or the black vegan letter dress and especially the elaborate gold ball gown towards the end of the show. Tracy’s attention to our fashion needs as women in the big apple was obvious throughout the show, which we can all appreciate, leaving us extra time to stop wondering about what we are going to wear on our frenzied days, allowing us to keep calm and enjoy a private moment drooling all over these amazing coats from her collection.
Check out a few of our favorites from the collection.
