Holmes & Yang Made a Smooth Entrance at New York Fashion Week 2012

Looks like the New York Fashion Week has been rather friendly to newcomers Katie Holmes and her longtime stylist, Jeanne Yang with their label “Holmes & Yang.” The duo’s presentation has been low-key, due to the fact that Holmes’ fame could serve as a double-edged sword. Her decision about keeping things on the quiet side gained her a new level of respect from fashion editors.

Holmes & Yang’s presentation consisted of 15 looks, which traditionally is too small to be called a full-fledged collection. However, the intention was indeed to feature individual looks and not a collective vision. In Holmes’ words:

“They’re luxury items, so they’re kind of what we want and what we wish for—it’s not total necessities. But for a certain woman, it is a necessity. We’re trying to create looks that fit into a woman’s closet.”

Holmes & Yang’s collection included an array of different translations of the word ‘chic’: Charming black evening jumpsuit with jet beads fringe, stylish motorcycle jackets, and tea dresses that scream “Katie Holmes would wear this!.”

So it looks like Katie Holmes and Jeanne Yang started off quite well. Let’s see how the brand grows from here.
