“Force Feeding Myself” NYFW: Billy Reid

18 Feb

Billy Reid FW15

There is something about this season’s New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2015 that just don’t pack the punch as previous seasons. Maybe because it’s the coldest temperatures New York has seen in a while or the anticipation from the upcoming Men’s week debuting this summer but I’m not getting much from the men’s collection I’ve view but grays, blacks, jumbo portions and two-ply fabrics. Albeit, I still managed to get thinspired by a few collection from the week.

Billy Reid down home southern comfort transported to the city fashions are always perfect for this freezing season. Just like comfort food we all seek during the winter months this collection is cozy, plush and appealing. Also, weight gain forgiving!

I’m all for luxury knits and dynamic coats, the suits and coat in this collection are abstract in construction for the modern fashion male but heavy with premium textiles for the country bumpkin trying to look great while staying warm. This is a very rich collection, the strong color palette helps bring home the grand theme of the garments. Its a perfect blend of overindulgent of fabric, hue and structure that is edited down to its bare bones.
