Fashion blended with art as Kimora Lee Simmons transformed her showroom into her own little gallery — with the artwork displayed on the walls “my prints in the collection that are blown up and distorted.”
Inspired by “The Thomas Crown Affair” — both the Sixties original and the Nineties remake — Simmons looked to channel a strong, confident woman. In a nod to men’s wear, she showed chic, tailored tweed suits; a sexy tuxedo jumpsuit, and a flattering ombré chevron sheath. Tying in the art reference were Rothko-inspired hues of burgundy, ink, forest and magenta.
No Kimora Lee Simmons collection would be complete without her signature body-skimming dresses, and she offered plenty, ranging from a sheath with shoulder cutouts to a chevron-beaded gown. The highlight of the lineup was the outerwear, most notably shearling pieces that included a cozy coat and a modern moto-inspired jacket.
