HE SAID, SHE SAID

Krystal Hoffacker, the Brooklyn designer behind Dress Reform, believes clothes should be shared and shared alike. The unisex silhouettes that dominated her Spring/Summer 2011 presentation at New York Fashion Week were completely intentional. “I like to construct garments that work for both men and women,” she tells Ecouterre. “This approach leaves a lot up to the wearer at the end of the day. The wearer brings life to each piece.”

“I like to construct garments that work for both men and women,” Hoffacker says.

Hoffacker’s favorite looks include a button-down denim jumpsuit, the oversize printed T-shirt, her drop-crotch pant, and the versatile sack dress, all of which were rendered in a blend of organic cotton and hemp. “I wanted to create an androgynous collection, emphasizing the beauty of natural materials,” she says.”
