Tracy Reese showed her 2014 Spring collection yesterday at Lincoln Center.
There was lively Latin-flavored music, packets of plantains on the seats, and even live conga players in a playful runway presentation.
In an interview backstage before the show she told me the African-Cuban theme is one she returns to again and again.
There was a strong masculine/feminine aesthetic. Take a look at the model pairing she started the show with.
She said of the collection, "There's a spirit of tribalism." She also said there were themes of athleticism and romanticism.
An especially pretty look Reese wanted viewers to note was the floral print in a glowing blue and red.
