Billy Reid S/S 11 ( gents fashion )

Reid, who was named Menswear Designer of the Year by GQ in February, showed his rugged yet urbane looks against a stage set of collapsed columns and withered doors, an image evocative of flood-ravaged New Orleans homes post-Katrina. Each model portrayed a specific character with a name and a backstory, a tradition of Reid’s, like Sunny Beatty, the “squirrel-eating black sheep,” and T.J. Goutreaux, the “quirky environmentalist who surveys and assesses wetland techniques; currently stationed in Venice, Lousiana.” The accessories, as usual, were standouts, from the Stetson hats and K-Swiss canvas tennis shoes to the totes filled with oyster shells. Pants were loose and easy, suits were tailored and old-fashioned, and jackets were casual and worn-in. It was exactly what we’ve come to expect from Reid—paragons of Southern refinement in timeless looks that are fresh for today.
