designs for a strong woman, whether she reigns over the Upper East Side or calls downtown home. The reference points for his latest collection were suitably powerful. Reyes looked at stone quarries the world over to turn out what he labeled "a sharp collection full of classic shapes with graphic elements." Some beautiful prints, derived from images of marble and limestone distorted to the point that they resembled snakeskin, adorned sleeveless dresses and little skirts. These pieces were then intricately pleated and folded until they came to resemble a cross section of one of those quarries. If there was a fault, it was that the collection didn't exactly scream "Fall." Bare legs and lightweight silk might work for winter in Reyes' hometown of Bogotá, but the rest of us, however strong, need something more substantial.
