BILLY REID

during northerngrade this weekend, i came across a vendor booth for billy reid. for those of you who are unfamiliar with northerngrade - it's a (mostly) mens pop-up market that hits major u.s. cities with vendors selling goods made in the USA. 

designer willam "billy" reid has won several prestigious awards in the past few years, including the cfda/vogue fashion fund award and cfda's best menswear designer of the year 2012. why has it taken me this long to find this brand? the menswear is great, and the womenswear is AMAZING.

 

his fall 2013 collection is exactly what i want in my wardrobe (check out the video for the show on vimeo). i love the menswear influence that's present in this collection. and a red lip? i'm sold. can't wait to see what this brand will release in the upcoming seasons.
