For Billy Reid’s collection collection shown at ArtBeam, Reid features hand-knit jacquard sweaters and other knits, wide knee-length shorts, polyester trenches and more loose, relaxed styles in a palette of neutrals. It was a sea of earth tones such as oatmeal, cream, bronze and bone, and a few pieces with blue and black. I interviewed the Alabamian designer for AskMen.com, for which Reid said he and his design team wanted to keep things extremely soft and uncluttered.

Outfit: Fall Casuals + Accessory Pattern Clashing

fall-casual-menswear-pattern-clashing-7

Fall is a great time to layer, and a simple way to do for a casual look is with a denim jacket and statement accessories. This fall has already been such a crazy time for me that I haven’t been posting as much as I usually do–sorry! Just got back from traveling Europe (so excited to share about that soon) and am now in Vancouver. Have had to keep styles rather casual so thought would be a good time to post about that.

For his upcoming spring collection Billy Reid presented with a runway show at the Refectory in the Highline Hotel, New York once again. I got a chance to be backstage, but first, the clothes.

The spring 2015 collection is said to be built from the concept of easing silhouettes and softening the structure and fabrics of the garments to create a modern, urban take on unstructured soft dressing. This resulted in comfortable outfits with light tailoring for a relaxed-chic looks as show by the above. Patterns played a role of course, as did oversized T-shirts, airy outwear, and long shorts and cropped pants paired tassel loafers, Espadrilles, K-SWISS leather sneakers or other footwear.

I’ll be sharing my favorites from the collection once NYFW wraps up, but in the meantime here’s my photo diary of being backstage at Billy Reid spring 2015. My favorite photo has to be the model selfie I stumbled upon when they were getting ready to rehearse, and possibly also Billy cooling off the models before the show by pressing iced cold cans on their necks. See those, grooming, dressing and more moments below:  Read the rest of this entry
