First off, why, thank you, Ms. Reese, for the golden bag of chocolate hearts you left on our seat. And for the Valentine of a show that makes us look forward to next fall.

The juxtaposition of texture and shape was a key element in Reese’s very good afternoon show which featured chunky cable knit sweaters (oh, they were so great) over wispy maxi skirts.

And although maxis are a trend this season, some our favorite looks here were all about Reese’s minis which looked so fresh worn with outerwear. One, a graphic silver cable sequin shift was smashing with a charcoal chunky cape. Another mixed-up beaded number, looked swell with a twill storm coat.

There were loads of pleats, some lacy looks and, natch, a few sugary dresses. Delicious!
