This fall Reed Krakoff created more body conscious garments which is shows an evolution to his signature minimalist style. This is his fifth season and this time around he discovered the waist. A brown polished leather coat nipped in the midsection and falling in an A-line shape to the knee and a black python bandeau that gave shape to a chiffon blouse and trousers were a couple of perfect examples. White, black and red were the main colors mixed in with ivory, grey and brown. Krakoff did not exclusively offer hourglass silhouettes.
He offered crisp pantsuits some of which could have worked on their own without the bulk of the cropped, hooded vests he showed with some of them. Knits were good looking and were great basics put together with some ensembles and perfectly so since it is a part of his burgeoning business. Fur patches on the sleeves of one and a front panel leather on another upped the special factor. What was missing were cocktail and evening which he entirely opted out and he only showed three bags in 30 looks. No matter because all of his looks really kept up the cleanliness and the quality of his collection.
