Designer: Billy Reid

The Vibe: This Alabama bred designer won the "GQ" Menswear Designer of the Year award and a coveted Levi's collaboration. At his presentation at Milk Studios, Reid told The Cut, "I make the clothes we wanna wear and we wanna put in our closet. And build them to last, not just from a durability standpoint, but from a style standpoint. You want things that are going to age like furniture, to be heirloom garments to pass down to the next generation." The layered looks and rugged props at the presentation echoed that sentiment.
