Kaelen S/S 2011 was the last show I saw during New York Fashion Week. It was held in a different location in Chelsea, NY. The presentation was impressive: the models would pose on these platforms or on the floor, and when the background lights would change color, the models would rotate until the presentation was over. I think this collection was my second favorite out of the six that I saw.
The designer, Kaelen Farncombe, was inspired by a recent tornado chasing trip, which can be seen through the effortless drapery and the colors that ranged from light peach to charcoal gray. She also used a range of fabrics from knits to leather to twill. This collection is definitely one of the more wearable ones, which is probably why I loved it so much. It's just so minimalistic and simple to wear out. The make up and styling were impeccable as well. I love it when designers use the same shoe and make-up on all the models because it's one less thing to look at. Aren't the shoes amazing?! I need to learn how to tie a turban like that. My favorite look is definitely the jumper dress layered over the long-sleeve t-shirt. I've been looking for a jumper dress everywhere so hopefully one will pop up soon so I can recreate that look!
Until next post,
