Katie Holmes is channeling former First Lady Jackie O for the cover of New York Magazine’s Fall Fashion issue.
In the issue, which has Mrs. Tom Cruise looking easy breezy fashionable, Holmes talks about designing for her luxury clothing line, Holmes & Yang, with Korean American stylist Jeanne Yang, which debuted in Fall 2009. Holmes’ inception to fashion design began after she became a mom. Holmes tells New York, “I started making clothes for Suri when she was born, designing dresses, and then having seamstresses sew them, because I don’t sew very well. As a child, I was always drawing clothes, and I’ve always loved fabrics, and when Suri was born, I wanted to have certain things be from me and created just by me for her. And so that kind of got me into it, and then one day, Jeanne and I were getting ready for something and we thought, men have such beautiful tailored shirts, they have such a uniform, and we thought it would be nice to make things that are simple that you can have forever.”
Holmes, 31, and Yang, 40, met six years ago at a shoot and decided to collaborate on a classic and functional collection four years later. Parts of the Fall 2010 pieces were debuted in Elle Magazine late June, where creams, pinks and blacks ruled the color palette, inspired by the timeless, simple beauty of ballet dancers.
The Holmes & Yang collection also includes Mommy & Me designs for little girls to match their mothers, a trend Katie and her super-stylist tot, Suri has been regenerating as of late. Yang’s 7-year-old twin daughters are also fans.
And they’re not the only ones embracing Holmes & Yang’s collection. Barney’s New York has agreed to extend sales of the line for another 8 month, a contract that reportedly net Holmes and Yang a cool $5 million.
