collection images: reed krakoff, pre-fall

by Jeremy Danté

hushed tones normally seen for the spring were seen in the refreshingly minimal reed krakoff pre-fall collection for 2011. reed krakoff is actually the creative director of coach & designs for both companies simultaneously. his approach to design, free from the heavy logoing we most commmonly see at coach, is astoundingly beautiful & understated elegance. use of suede, leather & metallic snakeskin were all seen throughout the collection, which proved to be a fresh take on the fall pre-season. relaxed silhouettes, layering & slices of color blocking were seen- which i really loved. overall, the set is strong granted the current direction of many major fashion houses of the current time. a progressive set with strong direction.
