LA based designer Jenni Kayne showed a youthful, sophisticated collection that lacked punch. Also, the palette was the moody black, greys and tans we've been seeing and I kept waiting for some color cameos, to no avail.
There were definitely some interesting mentions however. Dresses, both long and short, were pretty pretty with touches like round gold sequin collars and trickling disc sequins. I can definitely picture Nicole Richie in the one shouldered black fringe mini dress. Cream pieces were strong; coats and a really cute high waisted, only slightly tulip, skirt were standouts. Kayne obviously favors the vest-over-dress look with several short and long versions. The overall silhouette was slim and flattering, and her playing with proportions was impressive.
