"She knows where she's going this season," Tracy Reese said backstage of her customers after her Fall show. From the opening beats of Azealia Banks' high-octane hit "212" (we've got a hunch that this designer has known about fashion's new It-girl rapper longer than Karl Lagerfeld), it was clear that Reese and her girls are feeling confident lately. Shrunken peplum jackets, draped silk "cocoon" blouses, and sparkly lamé party frocks came in traffic-stopping bright colors ranging from tomato red to juniper green to ultraviolet.

You'd certainly turn heads in the printed jacquard pants with side tuxedo stripes and graphic hourglass coat. Styling is always key at a Tracy Reese show, and each look here was accessorized with a felted-wool trucker hat and futuristic sunglasses, which underscored the bold energy of this collection.
