This is a look at Billy Reid's Spring/Summer 2011 Collection Presentation with a couple cool pieces. Also shown is his collaboration with K Swiss which I was never a fan of until I saw these. They look great with the worn canvas look and those rope laces was just the right touch to make these stand out from the rest.
BTW I went to Fashion Night Out NYC in Soho last night and it was a complete mess. I saw only about 10% of the people actually shopping and a lot of the stores including LV were closed by like 9pm. Ralph Lauren stopped letting people in after the Janelle Monae performance so no shopping for me. I stopped in Michael Kors to buy a few of the FNO T-shirts and just to get help in there was like pulling teeth so no FNO T-shirts for me or my friends. Marc Jacobs packed, BBC packed, Prada packed so altogether it was an unenjoyable experience. Last year was so much fun I guess because only a certain amount of people were hip to it. I passed by the Meatpacking District and that looked like the place the place to be. I saw a performance by Robin Thicke at Hugo Boss while sitting in traffic so that was pretty entertaining. That was probably the highlight of the night. I saw quite a few nicely put together ensembles by the women but the men not so much. I saw the guys from StreetEtiquette.com and they definitely know how to put an outfit together. I dig their style. I praise Anna Wintour for using her power in order to help the economy and it's a ground-breaking idea. I, on the other hand, am not going to Soho next year. I'll be uptown or the meatpacking district! I hope your experience last night was better than mine.
