One of the predominate patterns in the Billy Reid fall/winter 2013 collection is a print based on a wallpaper that Billy particularly admires. “When we were getting ready to open our shop on Bond Street in New York, we researched some old Mylar wallpapers by Eames,” he explains. “We loved some of the detail in one particular pattern that we found – it has a herringbone effect mixed with more organized shapes - and found enough to cover a couple of key spaces in the shop. I’ve always loved that print, so this fall, we let it inspire a pattern we use throughout our collection.”
Speaking of inspiration, we think it’s fitting that our friend Carrie Morey agreed to model the Staten Dress in a gauzy silk version of Billy’s new wallpaper print for this post. Her work is most definitely inspiring - not to mention very delicious.
