12 Things Billy Reid Can't Live Without

Stepping into a Billy Reid store is a lot like walking into his cozy, curio-filled home in Florence, Alabama. The Louisiana-born fashion designer, who divides his time between the South and New York City, now has 10 boutiques around the country. Each shop features an atmospheric mix of salvaged materials and flea-market finds, high lighting his women's- and menswear, which combine classic Southern tailoring with modern urban flair. This fall, the award-winning designer will debut an accessories collection for Coach. Inspired by Americana, it will include a guitar case and alligator-wrapped flasks. "We're based in Alabama and work in New York," he says. "It's the balance of those two worlds that our aesthetic is about."

11 / MY LEVI'S CANVAS TOTE
