We think that menswear designer Billy Reid and his Southern accent are both majorly adorbs. But when we heard that his upcoming holiday collection for eBay would include stuff for women, we loved him even more.
The collection--which includes jewelry, bags, home decor, and clothes for men and women--drops on November
14 12 and will range in price from $20 to $100. The inspiration was travel, so expect utilitarian tailoring and practicality. At the designer's request, everything in the collection was made and produced in the US.
As for Reid's own relationship with eBay, he uses the site to find deals on vintage denim from Levi's. He tells eBay's tumblr, The Inside Source, that he replenishes his stash about once a year.
