Hope For Flowers Spring 2023 Ready-to-Wear Collection


As mini hems, sheer textiles and crop tops sweep the Spring 2023 runways, Tracy Reese at Hope for Flowers is in a more chaste mood. His previous collection showed several silhouettes with peekaboo bellies, but on reflection, Reese says goodbye to all that (for now). “When I really looked at what was selling, it was more modest,” Reese says. “I want to create clothes that people love and will wear over and over again. I don’t want to get too caught up in trends. Part of working more responsibly is making sure I make clothes you’ll want to wear. in four or five years. I never want to lose sight of that.

As Reese explains, her core clientele comes to her for lunch and cocktail-ready blouses and dresses, and Spring 2023 offers many of these classics in an array of patterns and fabrics. Silhouettes – mostly of the trapeze, wrap and slip variety – are workhorses, but with a twist in details such as cutout embroidery or patchwork prints. The closest thing to a fashion trend are wide leg pants with cargo pockets, but they’re streamlined enough that the customer will want to keep them when the pendulum swings back to tapered styles.
