Kaelen Haworth has plenty of reasons to celebrate: The young designer is just about ready to give birth and she presented a charming fall 2016 Kaelen collection. The concept originated with a wool crepe floral print — Haworth wanted to take the romance of the pattern and reinterpret it in a new way, she said. “It’s romantic, sporty and punk, with graphic elements that tie it all together,” she noted.
Somehow the mash-up worked in a cool yet feminine way — florals are not too precious on a wool crepe slipdress worn over check wide-leg pants. Outerwear was strong, with bold statement coats that ranged from an oversize plaid-check trench to a floral double-breasted blazer. Other key looks included a striped shirtdress with bell sleeves and a pleated lame floral midi gown.
