(Capsule) NY Women's Interviews: Spencer Singer

February 20, 2011 BY CAPSULESNEWS

What is your official position within Billy Reid?

I am the New York Store Director.

What are some key personal items you like to wear during F/W?

I'm big on texture so I love tweed, boiled wool, denim and camel hair.

What is your favorite piece from Billy's F/W 2011 women's collection?

It's got to be the trench coat. It works for everyone. A trench coat is a staple piece and this one is super feminine and consistent with current trends, but will definitely last you a lifetime.

What was Billy's inspiration for his F/W 2011 women's collection?

Billy took the men's collection, tailored it down and refined it so it's menswear inspired. It's sleeker, contemporary and more feminine than past collections.

I know this is your first time at (capsule), but what have you enjoyed about your experience so far?

The intimate environment is great especially for smaller designers who don't want to get lost at the bigger shows.

Would you rather own a hamster sized rhino or a rhino sized hamster?

I'll take the mini rhino. There would be way less poop patrol and less creepy than having a giant fat hamster.
