Designer Highlight: Reed Krakoff
Reed Krakoff’s woman is a strong woman. She works hard, walks with a purpose and enjoys the sort of lunches you have at the Modern or STK in midtown. While always full, her handbag never is messy. She shops the third floor (obviously) but you also may find her mixing in pieces from the sixth floor and 5F (think ALC, Peter Som or Helmut Lang). She prefers a low pony, parted down the middle…but it’s ok if her hair is a bit rumpled — she’s busy, industrious. You’ll find fresh flowers in her entryway, always.
This Spring Reed dresses his modern woman in modern silhouettes that are polished and crisp. While continuing his signature piping details (like in his sun-kissed layered silk dress, 212 872 2592) and modernist silhouettes, the designer explored Prints Gone Wild through a dynamic falcon print (seen above) inspired by John James Audubon’s Birds of America. This fierce print found itself on thin blouses and box-pleat skirts. Complete Krakoff’s Upper East Side meets Sports Max feel with leather tees (think Rag & Bone’s perforated, cut-out Bailey Tee), textured clutches and modernist jewelry.
Join us today as we celebrate the designer’s Spring Collection on the Third Floor — complete with Laduree macarons — from 2-4pm. Call 212 872 2592 for more details.
