Think Reese / Los Angeles

 I was an instant fan of the brand Reese. An admirer of the fact that the designer is self taught. I love the simplistically sexy aesthetic of everything she touches, I think she has the midas touch. The Reese Instagram feed showcases the beautiful designer, Sherise Cromwell, in selfies that will make you envious of her perfect skin and jeweled toned eyes. Behind all this beauty is a talented designer, creating a collection that is part feminine, part bad ass bitch. Arriving in LA for fashion week, the Reese show was at the top of my radar. Confident that by the end of the show I'd be wanting to empty my pockets for the entire collection.... I was right.


The model casting consisted of models that made you want to drop everything and run for the gym post haste. Oiled down flawlessly toned models marched barefoot down the runway. Video projected palm trees swayed in the background, you could almost smell the summer scent of hawaiian tropics sunscreen in the air. Slicked back hair glistened, giving off the look of a fresh dip in the ocean. Bikinis cut in geometric shapes accentuated curves in just the right places, proving that Reese is a know-it-all when it comes to highlighting a woman's body. Grid cutout bikini tops were paired with high waist bikini bottoms, complete with black surfboard in tow.

It's never to early to be thinking about swimwear... It's summer somewhere!  The Reese collection kicked the summer bikini plan in gear, both in what to wear and inspiration for how to look while Thinking Reese.
p.s. time to chase the sun in a Reese piece.
