Katie Calls It Quits

-------

Katie Holmes and Jeanne YangPerhaps a long time coming, Katie Holmes and stylist Jeanne Yang have dissolved their fashion label, Holmes & Yang, which was absent from the New York fashion week calendar this season. Launched in 2009, the range received less-than-positive reviews from critics and has reportedly been dropped from retailers like Barneys New York and Harvey Nichols. No official reason was given for the split, but Holmes is said to be focusing on her film career, and the fact that Yang is based in L.A. while the actress is based in New York was apparently causing strain on the relationship.

Fashion Week Countdown: Before They Were On The Schedule…

-------

Ready or not, here it comes. New York fashion week is just over two and a half weeks away, and while the non-fashion world enjoys the last gasps of summer, we at Style.com are busy ramping up for the Spring ’13 shows. For the next few weeks, we’ll look forward by looking back—at our favorite moments from fashion weeks past.

Back in 2006, these two were just household names, tabloid fixtures, and front-row attendees: Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes. Now? They’re designers—and what’s more, competitors. Beckham has been showing in New York since 2008, and this season, Katie Holmes and her stylist, Jeanne Yang, will bring their Holmes & Yang collection to the New York runway for the first time. We’ll be looking forward to both on September 9.

Holmes & Yang Channel Farrah And Jaclyn

-------

Ever since the Oscars, power stylists have been the talk of Tinseltown. On the short list of influential names is Jeanne Yang, who was in town yesterday with her client and business partner Katie Holmes to preview the Fall collection from their co-designed Holmes & Yang line. On the sixth floor of Barneys, the duo talked textiles, which for Fall included buttery leathers, soft suedes, and silk chiffons. “The feel of the clothing is important to us,” Holmes told Style.com. “It’s for women to be comfortable in their outfits, but also we both have daughters and their hands are always touching our clothing.” Ergo, dinner jackets and trousers are fully lined in four-ply silk (including a standout cream pantsuit with caramel leather accents, $2,950 for the jacket and $995 for the pant), a black trench in notoriously difficult gazar ($3,480) was elegantly rendered with leather piping and elongated elbow patches (a line signature), all handmade in Brooklyn. “We were looking for quality and we came across this amazing factory,” Yang said. “We looked at Italian manufacturers too, but the Brooklyn company blew us away with their workmanship.”

The collection also had Charlie’s Angels in mind, although with a French twist, and dabbled in bright color and transparency. A backless cropped black suede vest ($960) recalled Jaclyn Smith, Yang’s favorite, while a see-through fuchsia silk blouse with red cuffs and collar ($945) might have been more Farrah Fawcett, Holmes’ preferred Angel. Naturally, there were also a few red-carpet offerings, including a backless black gown with cap sleeves and crisscross pleating on the bodice. “You see this shape?” Holmes asked, pointing to where the pleating formed a V at the waist. “It makes your waist appear super-slim. We’re all about highlighting the best parts about women, not subtracting from them.”

Katie Holmes, Designer

-------

The time has come. Katie Holmes has been very hush-hush about the “premium designer” line she’s been working on with her stylist, Jeanne Yang, but reports today confirm that Holmes & Yang will be available this fall. Holmes has been snapped in two of her co-creations—a jumpsuit with lace sleeves and a dress with a leather bustier—and even sparked rumors of a New York fashion week runway show. The line features looks for women and children (sans leather bustiers, we hope) and will be available at Maxfield in Los Angeles. Clothes do not come with paparazzi. [WWD]
