Voyager and vagabond inspirations are a dime a dozen in fashion, but Tracy Reese
's muse was a traveler of both time and space: She channeled the 1970's, an era when globe-trotting women put more of an effort into what they packed. The pages of this chic sightseer's passport must have been jammed with stamps, judging by the broad spectrum of prints Reese used. An island-orchid sundress was updated with a leather bodice and au courant cutout back; tribal waves and an abstract ikat on silky tunics were picked up somewhere in Africa or Asia. The saddle brown flares and floppy leather hats were too retro, but the color scheme of cool blues, lilacs, and tans—punctuated by shots of coral—gave this gadabout collection a surprising cohesiveness.
