Katie Holmes’ acting career might have taken a wee bit of a bashing recently (*ahem*) but her fashion empire is just getting started. Holmes & Yang, the collection Katie has created with her long-time stylist Jeanne Yang launched yesterday in the UK at that bastion of all things fabulous: Harvey Nichols.
Holmes & Yang offers super-luxe versions of American sportswear classics with a modern twist. Basically, the look is rather like Katie’s own wardrobe - not much of a shock when you consider that the range was borne out of necessity, with the twosome constantly looking for pieces which could take them from ‘day to night, casual to cocktail [and] work to weekend’. Well, isn’t that what we’re all searching for?
Kate looked slightly to be veering more towards ‘casual’ than ‘cocktail’, as she turned out in some skinny indigo jeans, a loose cut blouse and a mushroom jacket from her own label. But we’ll forgive her for looking a bit casual, since the weather was so dreadful in London yesterday she had probably fallen into a state of shock – especially as she’d arrived straight from sun-drenched Paris, where she attended the Armani Prive couture show.
