The Collection’s Best Look: To the beats of a three piece Cuban band, Tracy Reese sent a flurry of color, energy, and sensuality down the runway for spring. Like a painted scene straight from 1950’s Cuba, beautiful women drenched in bold hues, wearing crop tops and flared midi-skirts, cropped trousers, and ultra-feminine dresses danced down the catwalk. The patterns, prints, and shapes that Reese has always been known for were obviously present, along with a strong side dish of Afro-Cuban inspiration.
