suze080731-3.jpgAs the count down to Fashion Week begins and Summer’s end draws closer, I can’t help but anticipate next spring’s fashions. For those of you who are like me and love a sneak peek of just about anything, you’re in for a treat. But before we proceed I suggest you fill a flute with your drink of choice, turn on something smooth and melodic and wrap your self in the serene ambiance of spring.

The fashions of spring and summer were filled with bright colors, bold statements, and sex. The trend, create the thought of the act as well as the anticipation, giving the illusion of a nude woman. In most cases the idea was tastefully executed, showing illusions that were more illustrious than vulgar. Sex a deliciously human act is apart of us all, but I couldn’t help but miss the romance of innocent spring kisses in the park being translated onto the runway.

Luckily, spring 2009 seems to be getting back to basics starting with the newest collection from esteemed designer and Detroit native Tracy Reese.

Much different from her 2008 spring collection, which seemed to be inspired by the eras of the 30’s and 40’s, her new pieces are soft, adorned, refreshing and strong.

For starters, the collection focuses on watercolors like Aegean blue, apricot and Monet floral. The pieces continue to exude femininity with airy structures and sexy silhouettes. Like most Tracy Reese originals each piece makes a statement and tells the story of a beautiful woman. From the power-suit to the tea dress the each look can complement any women’s wardrobe.
