_DSC9776Unveiling her Fall 2014 collection at the Center 548 on Sunday, February 9th, Tracy Reese went from loud to ecstatic as she juxtaposed elements from eclectic references and thus coming up with classically modern silhouettes meant for the 21st century woman.

As we approach the middle of the second decade of the new millennium, change is definitely in the air. And like most of the designers this season, a dichotomy of ideas is proposed on the runway. Tracy Reese suggests dressing that begins with the sublime and then swings to pop-culture.

In doing so, Tracy Reese urged her audience to take an intimate look at self-expression as she added unique elements that provide pops of personality and spirit to utility pieces.

The collection highlights include menswear inspired silhouettes, oversized embroidered sweaters, fringe detailing, gold and gunmetal beading and lamé and heathered tweet knits, anchored by a palette of playful colors that are tempered by neutral, muted tones.

A metallic anorak paired with a sexy slip creates an unexpected look that is undeniably modern. Self-expression is perpetuated by collection accents in metallic leathers, ostrich trims and jeweled and feather details.
