After his debut eponymous RTW collection was panned by the critics—WWD called it "heavy" and "clunky" and Suzy Menkes called it a "work in progress"—designer Reed Krakoff is dusting himself off and forging ahead. "I love that I’m now past my first reviews and I have a past to react to,” Krakoff told Cathy Horyn at the NY Times. “Design is so organic that you need the interplay with the critics. It was kind of cathartic.” He told Horyn that his collection was bought by Saks Fifth Avenue and international retailers including Lane Crawford, 10 Corso Como, Colette, and Isetan. [On the Runway]
