Jenni Kayne’s collection aimed to serve a purpose: “I focused on creating clothes for strong, confident women with a need for effortlessly glamorous pieces to help them navigate their busy Holiday schedules,” she explained. The designer also looked at style icon Lauren Bacall for her statement pieces — men’s shirting, high-waist pants and gingham. In Kayne’s hand, shirts were either done in cozy flannel or in a silky polka-dotted pattern — which she also rendered in tunics, layered over pants. Elsewhere, corduroy pants, oversize turtlenecks and gingham T-shirt dresses added a campy chic vibe.
This season, Kayne is also introducing home items such as Peruvian knitted throws, scented candles, bedding and pillows.
