UPS Winner, Brian Reyes' spring/ summer ‘07 collection was extremely intrepid. Reyes' color palette was extremely muted and ambled down the path of black, gray and taupe only to be offset with vibrant oranges and soft golds. Reyes showed what could be in essence an entire lifestyle offering.
His collection of cocktail dresses, and elegant separates were juxtaposed by much sportier looks - leggings, gym shorts and cotton jersey tops. Reyes still maintained a sheer effect with slightly revealing separates. On many of Reyes' garments there were hints of a slightly Asian theme, as he showed an array of embellishments and softly tucked pleats and ruffles.
Prints were the key in this collection, spiraling back and forth with circles, tiny polka dots, and many others in abstract form. It is increasingly evident that Brian Reyes' years at Oscar de la Renta and Ralph Lauren were highly beneficial in more ways than one.
