Kenneth Cole Collection

October 26, 2012 by  
Filed under Fashion News

Kenneth Cole has always struck a balance with clothes and accessories that are down-to-earth yet ready to rise to an occasion. Last season, he upped the ante by launching a higher-end “Collection” line targeted at a more discerning customer, and for Spring, the designer pushed things forward by bringing in consulting creative director Kobi Halperin.

The new lineup has a nomadic theme, and you could detect a North African influence in artisanal embellishments like hand-painted studs and burnished metalwork. Earthy materials including damask, raffia, and linen underscored the vibe. But this being street-savvy Kenneth Cole, the aforementioned linen was coated to look and feel like leather, with results that were more city than Sahara.

Cole adhered to a primarily black and white color palette with flashes of gold mixed in. “I’ve always been more comfortable in black, in the shadows,” he told Style.com. Still, he maintained a lightness with asymmetric, sheer chiffon pieces, and promoted a more unstructured, layered silhouette with soft leather vests that spilled open and long shorts paired with on-trend, to-the-knee sandals. Other accessories like iPad shoulder bags and metallic python-print clutches kept the message modern.

On the boys’ side, hand-painted moto jackets and relaxed Bermuda pants maintained the lineup’s overall lived-in, utilitarian feel. Cole is planning to upgrade to a runway show in February, and judging by this strong outing, we’d say the Collection is ready for the main stage.

Banana Republic

October 24, 2012 by

The dominant theme at the Spring shows was a return to simplicity following a Fall season of opulent brocades and printed suits. Banana Republic creative director Simon Kneen tapped into the cleaned-up mood with his new collection for the brand. Guests at today’s presentation were greeted by models in graphic striped patio dresses that hinted at the French Riviera, worn with mid-heel stacked leather sandals. The IAC building’s atrium was divided into four different tableaux, and it was the “fifty shades of white—or rather, one hundred shades of white”—moment, as Kneen put it, that felt the freshest. Noteworthy here was a sharp, single-button tuxedo vest paired with pleated trousers, piled up with chunky gold chain necklaces. There was also a vibrant monochromatic section that incorporated what Kneen called “colors from my salad,” like heirloom tomato red, spring mix green, and bell pepper orange and yellow. For the boys, tailored shorts suits and chambray jackets offered updates for the wardrobe, emphasizing basics with a twist.
