Holmes & Yang Fall/Winter 2013-2014 RTW – New York Fashion Week
Ever since stunning Katie Holmes joined hands with Jeanne Yang to launch a new brand, we have all been more than sure to always see stunning creations, as she always knows how to look gorgeous and how to create unique looks. The Homes & Yang brand was then officially presented for the first time during the last season’s New York Fashion Week, where Katie created a pleasant casual atmosphere by offering tea and coffee to her guests and inviting them to take off their shoes, if they wanted. As for the new season, the young designer duo unveiled the Holmes & Yang fall/winter 2013-2014 collection during New York Fashion Week in a more modest manner, reasoning that it’s February and it’s more pleasant to cozy up in warm clothing pieces and spend more time with editors.
Talking about the newest Holmes & Yang fall/winter 2013-2014 collection, Jeanne Yang said: “Our clothing is quiet. We go back and forth — make a splash, make it known that we are here, but we also go back and say, ‘Do we have the time to talk to [the editors]?”
The 15-look Holmes & Yang fall/winter 2013-2014 collection draws inspiration from the Forties, more precisely from Katherine Hepburn, and brings timeless classics that always manages to attract a generous amount of attention. Simplicity, elegance, femininity and a nice retro allure are the keywords for these evening gowns, casual dresses and smart suits. Black, navy blue, red, white and camel are the shades for the new Holmes & Yang clothing pieces. while most of the looks are monochromatic and minimalist, there is wool bustier coming with matching skinny trousers that feature checkered patterns.
From ground-skimming evening gowns and elegant dresses to chambray shirtdresses, pants, coats and tops, the new Holmes & Yang fall/winter 2013-2014 collection has every type of item for any occasion and style. And although all the pieces radiate a high dose of retro allure and seem to target middle-aged women, Yang hurried up to mention that it still is a young brand. “We know that we are a younger line, but we come from a heritage of parents that are self-made,” she said. “They taught us not to be afraid of customizing something and being confident. ‘Go ahead and make this dress your own.’”
