Menswear designer Billy Reid is quite the collaborator, and on Tuesday, April 19th, only a bit after his J. Crew line was released, he celebrated the launch of his new K-Swiss line. Featuring musical guests The Drive-By Truckers, the launch was held at Reid’s Wholesale Showroom, which is across the street from his New York flagship store. The CFDA winner was inspired by his own tattered K-Swiss sneakers when creating the collection, and infused the worn-down style in his washed trio of men’s and women’s shoes.
