    It was announced by WWD back in August, and here are the 2 sneak peek photos.

    WWD piece:
    "After a few months of modeling teaser pieces, Katie Holmes, who’s clearly intent on proving she’s not a one-trick pony (Broadway, “So You Think You Can Dance?”), is ready to unveil Holmes & Yang, the collection she’s been designing with her stylist, Jeanne Yang. The duo’s “premium designer” line, which includes women’s and children’s wear — presumably inspired by Suri Cruise — and is said to be full of classic fare, will launch exclusively at Maxfield in Los Angeles for fall."


    Everything is navy or white with black accents.

    I don't think it looks ugly... just very unoriginal.

    Neither of the "designers" of Holmes & Yang are actually designers.

    So unoriginality is what one would expect.

    yeah sure the jumpsuit was "commented on":rolleyes:..it was almost universally derided in the tabloids when she showed up in that monstrosity...

    the black and cream chevron long tank dress is OK.

    so... the elle article is a sugarcoating of the fact that:
    - they have no formal training
    - they unapologetically copy existing garments

    you know, I can try to live with another fauxlebrity line but NOT openly knowing that I'm being sold a $950 blouse made by two people whose fashion cred begins and stops at their "trouser lining" anecdote.

    Homegirls have just boarded the Balmain crazy train.

    was it so hard to say they hired a team of designers?! even the Olsens said they worked with patternmakers and seamstresses for The Row.

    I found the most funny part is where they began about how both learned to sew at an early age. As if they ever did any sewing in the past let's say 10/20 years or ever did it seriously and besides that fact they learned how to home-sew from their mothers, they wouldn't know one bit on how to properly deal with the luxury fabrics that they're working with.

    The line sold well at Barney's here when they made a personal appearance. I did not take off work to go :innocent: The pieces look well-made, I like that they're made in the US ... but I've not been tempted to try anything on. The pieces seem to be a bit too basic, and not crazy about their choice of accent colors. I do like the basic idea though of things that are not so memorable that people clock you wearing them again. Not crazy about the leather trim. I do find the built-in Spanx interesting ...

    Katie Holmes hires stepdaughter Bella as her new fashion apprentice



    By Daily Mail Reporter


    Talk about keeping it in the family.
    Actress-turned-fashion designer Katie Holmes has enlisted some help with her blossoming clothing line Holmes & Yang from someone close-to-home.

    She has hired her 18-year-old stepdaughter Bella Cruise, the adopted daughter of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, as an intern at the company, the actor has revealed

    'Kate’s designing and [Bella] is just working her way up,' Mission: Impossible star Tom told People magazine at the Simon Wiesenthal Center and Museum of Tolerance National Tribute Dinner in Beverly Hills last week.
    "She’s an artist, Bella, so it’s really great that she gets to work with it,' he added. 'She’s loving it.'
    The young budding designer just returned from a trip to New York, where she was being shown the ropes of the growing company.
    'This is my wife’s company, so you talk about movie sets with me, I can tell you [about] that,' he joked with a laugh.
    'You’ve got to go to all these different factories and verify and make sure you get the correct clothes,' he said. When asked if he was proud of his daughters talents and aspirations, he responded: 'I am! It’s wonderful!'
    Katie Holmes' clothing line was launched in May 2011 in collaboration with designer Jeanne Yang.

    'We just wanted to do comfortable clothes that you can wear going from a meeting to being a mom to going on a date,' Katie said of the collection at the time admitting that her daughter and Jeanne's two daughters had been a large inspiration. (dailymail.co.uk)

    Beyoooond boring. Id only pay that much $$$ if twas the best quality and still I dont think the silhouette is too flattering. It looks like something people over 60 would wear.

    PS Fashionista-ta! OMFG! Beee-haave!
