Interview With Jenni Kayne

Fab Exclusive! Jenni Kayne Speaks Equestrian Chic For Fall

Jenni Kayne is a quite force at New York Fashion Week. Her sharp cuts, feminine silhouettes, and cool girl aesthetic are always on my radar. For Fall, the LA-based designer brought equestrian chic to her sportswear. Striped blankets, mud cloth, and aged leather were reworked for the city. Utility played a big role — jodhpur shorts and boxy coats rocked my world. The sleek suede platforms were also designed by Jenni, and leather gloves added the final sporty touch. I caught up with the designer, and she told me about her inspirations, challenges, the difference between East and West Coast style, and what she wears to keep warm. Listen up.

Let's talk Fall 2010 inspirations.

Equestrian culture was a major inspiration. Ochre, British racing green, and mud brown feel like Fall in the English countryside.

What was the biggest challenge with this collection?

Timing is always a challenge.

Proudest piece from this collection?

The Mud Cloth Anorak. I love the versatility of it and the weightless quality of the silk.

To read the rest,


What kind of woman wears your clothes?

Modern women who value practical fashion.

What's the main difference between West Coast and East Coast style?

Style on the West Coast tends to be less buttoned up than on the East Coast.

What are your favorite clothes to help keep you warm?

My husband's socks and a Jenni Kayne fox fur vest.

What are your snow shoes?

Sorel Boots
