DOUGLAS REKER’S ART

I first saw Douglas Recker’s work back in Miami during the Arts of Fashion Debut Series, showcasing new American designers.  His website is up now and his debut collection, the ‘Picnic Collection’ is showcased better by his lookbook than the flurry of a catwalk show.  Taking the woven surface of a picnic basket and the seamless qualities of a picnic blanket, Reker has conjured up sillhouettes that rely on folding and overlapping and incorporate a subtle picnic imagery of flora and fauna.  I plan many picnic outings but now I’ll definitely have Douglas’ collection in mind…

He has told me he’s slowly working on his new collection ‘Ting Things’ and perhaps some selling points will be in order soon… (you’ll have to contact Douglas directly and see what he can do for your picnic needs…he’s as nice as they come!)

Still, it’s a bit of a delight starting off with the very first roots of a designer and seeing the progress…
