Billy Reid Reflects on 20 Years in Fashion

NEW YORK — Billy Reid could be a case study in resilience.
Since he created the first William Reid collection in March 1998, the soft-spoken Southern designer has experienced more than his share of ups and downs.
The ups: He has built his Southern-flavored Americana designer collection into a successful wholesale business at Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom and 13 of his own Billy Reid stores. He’s also won four Council of Fashion Designers of America awards.
The downs: His initial foray into fashion, William Reid, failed following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, driving the designer and his family from New York back to his home state of Alabama.
But despite the roller coaster that has defined his career, Reid is happy to be at the helm of a $ 25 million brand as he prepares to celebrate his 20th anniversary next year.
“Failure? I’ve been there,” Reid said, sitting on a chair in his showroom on Bond Street here. “Losing everything overnight was so humbling, but it makes you realize what’s important to you and that you can recover.”
Reid’s story begins in the small town of Amite, La., where his mother owned a women’s boutique called T.J.’s for Her that operated out of

NEW FACE: Uniqlo has appointed Gordon Reid, the world’s top male professional wheelchair tennis player, as its latest global brand ambassador. Reid, a Paralympics singles gold medalist, is the first British athlete to represent the company in such a capacity.

Made for L.A.: Billy Reid Sets Up Shop at Magasin

Billy Reid will plant a flag — albeit temporary — on the West Coast today. The Alabama designer is set to kick off his monthlong pop-up shop at friend Josh Peskowitz’s Magasin concept shop in Culver City, Calif., with a made-to-measure event running through the weekend.
“We think it’s a good opportunity for them to showcase more of who they are in Los Angeles,” Peskowitz said. “It’s a nice, organic partnership certainly and I have an enormous amount of respect for him.”
The temporary installment will carry exclusives including hand-painted graphic shirts and an assortment of tailored pieces, such as shorts made from selvage chambray. This weekend, clients of the brand can come into the store for custom orders, which have about a four- to six-week turnaround.
The designer, while having done trunk shows and special installations within his own stores, has never offered the made-to-measure experience outside of those and Reid said the success of what happens at Magasin will no doubt be weighed for the possibility of doing similar events going forward.
“We do not have a shop out here on the West Coast, but we have several customers out here,” Reid said. “I think once we go through it and figure out

Billy Reid Signs Eyewear Licensing Deal With Eponym

Billy Reid is moving into eyewear with help from Eponym.
The designer has signed a multiyear licensing agreement with the start-up to produce the first Billy Reid Optical collection, which will be available in Billy Reid stores and select department stores and boutiques for fall 2017.
“I have been wearing glasses since I was 20 years old, so at this point they are a part of my identity,” Reid said. “There’s been an obvious demand from our customers requesting eyewear and it only made sense for us to find a partner to help this come to life.”
Reid said the collection, which will include sunglasses and optical lenses, will be inspired by classic American shapes and made from fine metals, brass and horn.
“The team at Eponym has long admired Billy’s dedication to craftsmanship and the rugged appeal of his brand, as well as Billy’s honest, open and collaborative approach to partnership,” said Andrew Lipovsky, Eponym’s founder and chief executive officer. “The partnership with Billy Reid cements Eponym’s status as the go-to licensing partner for contemporary brands that are seeking to expand into eyewear.”
Eponym, which recently brought on Trish Donnelly, the ceo of Urban Outfitters Inc., to be its newest board member, was founded in

Billy Reid Men’s RTW Spring 2016

Billy Reid offered up a soft color palette of different shades of neutrals in an array of textured and luxe fabrics for spring. He even dabbled in solid black, ordinarily a no-no for someone with such a Southern sensibility, but the fit and flow of the ebony trench just felt right, Reid said, and made the cut.
 
Although his mastery of textile design was evident in the jacquard sweaters, polyester trenches that looked like silk, and basket-weave shorts, nothing was over-the-top.
 
“I didn’t want things to feel fussy or overcooked,” he said. In fact, any fabrics that Reid deemed too heavy for the season, he had made into pillows that covered the benches at his show and served as parting gifts for attendees.
 
“Sometimes the heavy fabrics are too hard to wear,” the designer said.
 
Reid’s tailored clothing showed a subtle Fifties influence with fuller silhouettes in jackets and high-waist pants, indicating that the tight, slim cuts of the past few seasons are yesterday’s news.
 
The collection overall was spot on and a strong indicator of Reid’s ability to always stay one step ahead of his customer.

L.A. Reid Says It’s Not ‘Realistic’ For Mariah Carey To Make Another Number One Hit

Mariah Carey has a new compilation of her number one hits entitled, “#1 to Infinity.” Sound familiar? Yes, it’s her third. On Monday, the songstress gave fans a sneak peek of the music video for the album’s lead single, “Infinity.”

Although the single failed to crack Billboard’s Top 10 charts — it debuted at 82 earlier this month— Carey’s longtime label boss, L.A. Reid, says it’s not “realistic” to expect the Grammy Award-winning songstress to regain her previous chart-topping success in today’s music climate.

“Mariah Carey made her first hit record in 1991. To even be on the radio at this point in her career is a huge accomplishment, because radio doesn’t cater to veteran artists or legends,” he said.

But he didn’t stop there. In a new interview with Billboard, Reid explained why he feels veteran artists such as Carey, Bruce Springsteen and Prince have difficulty earning radio airplay.

“Radio caters to in-the-moment stars… Nobody that put out records 25 years ago is going to have a No. 1. Not Paul, Stevie, Bruce, Mick or Keith. Not Prince, not anyone. So if she can get on the radio, we’ve done damn good. Would we like to have a No. 1? F– yeah, I’m greedy. But it’s not realistic.”

Reid’s revealed his solution for veteran artists to the mag. “I like concept records, I like the idea of thematic, storytelling records. I love duets and the Great American Songbook. I think a great vocalist should un-cage themselves and think about things like that sometimes,” he stated.

“I mean, Frank Sinatra did it. It’s fun to sing songs you love. And let’s not forget that one of Mariah’s biggest hits, ‘I’ll Be There,’ was a cover. There are many things that Mariah can still do.”
