Summary: The Brian Reyes 2010 Collection was light and airy and simple in presentation, yet bold and rich in the designer's use of color and fabrics. The first look was a white Japanese cotton bodysuit, folded around the hips diaper style, and I am not sure who besides the model can wear it, but it was a wonderful and innovative design. Besides simple white cottons rich colors like indigo, sepia, wasabi and red came into play on the runway. A sepia print pocket t-shirt with deep red shorts was such an easy look yet very rich in color and pattern. He played with layers and sheerness. A red jersey bra under a white ruffle blouse, very short white boy shorts under a jacket and black jersey performance pants under coats. A bold and colorful bleeding heart print and a large black skeletal print motif was strong and a signature of Brian Reyes – the use of his powerful textiles. Missing from the show but on the line sheet was a red Japanese jersey tiered gown, which would have ended the show with more of a punch.
