Katie Holmes and Jeanne Yang at their presentation for Holmes & Yang.
We were super stoked for Katie Holmes when we heard that Holmes & Yang, the collection that she designs with friend Jeanne Yang, would show at New York Fashion Week for the first time. Well, today was the day, and although the line’s presentation was super intimate–only 150 people were permitted into the Box at Lincoln Center–the excitement was palpable in the lobby of fashion week HQ. We were walking backstage just before the presentation let out, and had to wade through a decently sized knot of photographers patiently awaiting the designer. As for the clothes themselves, (because that’s what we’re all here for, right?), they were prim without being stuff, clean without being sterile. Composed mostly of solid colored separates, Holmes & Yang is a completely wearable, modern line. Our one sadface about the presentation, however? Where was Suri?
Katie’s daughter, who just started school, is already famous for her shoe collection at just 6 years old, so we thought it natural that she would be in attendance at her mom’s first Fashion Week presentation. It is a school day, though, so we applaud Katie for keeping Suri in school. We also suspect that the little girl is going to be no stranger to the fashion world when she’s older (just a hunch), so we can wait.
What do you think of Holmes & Yang’s new collection?
