Summery: Tracy Reese said "Post-Impressionist portraits, namely by Vuillard, Van Gogh and Modiglian" were the inspiration for her Fall '09 collection. For her legions of fans this translated into to hot for teacher adult school girl clothes. At least the accessories were reminiscent of prep-school replete with knee socks, knit caps and geek chic glasses. But let's talk about the clothes. The Tracy Reese signature beautifully patterned frocks were aplenty, many paired with chunky sweaters or menswear style jackets. There were also a few as were a few beautifully draped knit dresses. Was there anything really new? No, but why mess with a sure thing. This isn't the time if you want your clothes to sell. Her fans will be pleased. Pretty always sells.
