Holmes & Yang Spring 2013
If Katie Holmes and Jeanne Yang are intent on winning the affections of New York's hard-lined fashion types, than it's safe to say that they're off to pretty good start. Their intimate Spring 2013 presentation — the duo's first official outing on the New York fashion calendar — certainly offered up plenty of chic, downtown-tinged options.
The focus here was on basics, but there was nothing boring about these clean-lined looks. One speckle-print shorts suit, for example, was the kind of thing that someone could easily make a statement in at night, but its individual pieces were relaxed enough that they could just as easily be paired with more casual pieces for day. Likewise, a sexy V-neck tank in slick black leather with skinny spaghetti straps looked right at home paired with an olive silk maxi skirt, while one strapless jumpsuit in breezy silk had black lace insets running down the leg for a hint of romantic appeal. If this is the kind of elevated versatility Holmes & Hang is capable of, then it will be fun to see what else the pair can do.
