The Girl Next Door
Katie Holmes, Jeanne Yang, and Suri Cruise on Dallas Fashion and Their Holmes & Yang Line
by Raya Ramsey
When Kristin and I were readying for the interview, we were told only professional photography would be allowed, but I cant NOT post a photo of Katie Holmes when she comes to Dallas. Here she is, right, showing off a Holmes & Yang suede jacket. (I left little Suri Cruise alone, but imagine her hanging out on the floor, playing. Shes a doll.) Ill upload better photography when I receive it. Yes, shes as beautiful and gracious in person as you think she might be when you see her in movies. Her partner, Jeanne Yang, is delightful, too. And what does the design duo think of Dallas? Love it, they said in unison. Katie calls Dallas women beautiful and kind, while Jeanne added that were also sharp. Thank you, ladies. Details of Kristin and my interview after the jump.
Holmes & Yang has just produced its third collection, but its just hit the floors of Dallas Barneys NorthPark for the first time today. In the collections youll find basic garments created to fit and last. Were sticklers on our sizing, Holmes says. Yang says she inspired by the thought of pieces lasting to be passed down generations rather than of-the-moment trends. Details, like lace (the same lace that Hermes uses, I should add) are added as subtle details, rather than in-your-face sexy appeal. Neutrals are at the heart of the collection, but the spring line includes army green and mauve. See the collection at Barneys, but have a little preview below.
