Billy Reid

Billy Reid was named the 2010 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Winner tonight, taking home the $300,000 prize along with a bronze statue made by artist Rachel Feinstein, whose work I love. Eddie Borgo and Prabal Gurung were named runners-up, each collecting $100,000 and trophies in the shape of bronze eggs also created by Rachel. Reid’s designs are classical and bespoke but with a great downtown vibe. I love the way he dresses guys, especially if there are suspenders involved. His collections remind me of the way we used to dress in high school and college, this sort of effortless combination of used (vintage) and new clothes, whatever worked and looked great for the moment without trying too hard. Sexy librarian chic.
