Sneak Peek: Tracy Reese Spring 2013

As we bid farewell to summer's tank tops, shorts and sandals, designers are already deciding what we'll be dying to wear next spring. I've asked Tracy Reese what she'll be sending down the runway in just a few short days at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City. Here's what to expect:

"For Spring 2013, Reese combines a variety of textures, patterns and details for an effortless collection of versatile silhouettes. Inspired by the rich range of hues found in David Hockney landscapes, Reese's palette focuses on foliage-inspired greens, complimented by cool blues, lilacs, tangerines and neutrals.

'I played with the juxtaposition of organic and technical, soft and structured and sporty and feminine for an unexpected and refreshing collection,' said Reese. 'A quilted silk jacket in pert layered over a black burnout gauze shirt and a mentholescence stretch linen trouser, and paired with fringed sandal and clutch, creates an effortless look that is sophisticated yet relaxed.'"
