Katie Holmes spent yesterday kicking off her heels with fashion editors in a New York City hotel suite to present the latest elegant collection for her Holmes & Yang fashion line. But today, the blizzard that’s battering the East Coast caused Holmes to reprioritize. Her daughter Suri‘s school was closing early, it was explained, and she had to go pick her up.
That practical part of her life — and that of her design partner and stylist Jeanne Yang, herself a mother to twin girls — is an ever-present influence on their fashion philosophy. “Our customer is somebody who wants to be comfortable” says Yang, who walked PEOPLE through an intimate one-on-one presentation of the line. “You want to look good, but Katie and I always talk about this, it should never come at the cost of comfort.”
As Holmes herself told The New York Times, their goal is “to make high-quality pieces that are simple enough, you can wear over and over again.”
With luxe fabrics and silhouettes that show subtle peeks of skin, Holmes & Yang, produced entirely in America, was inspired this season “by the 40s by way of the 70s, Katherine Hepburn, and menswear with little touches of femininity,” says Yang.
One of Holmes’s favorite looks is a figure-flattering, shoulder exposing peplum power suit because, “Katie and I always talk about our shoulders,” says Yang. “The fact is that shoulders are always sexy, and you never lose your shoulders.”
The designers took an equally beauty-conscious yet practical approach to the Bobbi Brown makeup their models wore (Holmes is the face of the line). Get all the details on what Brown called the “dewy faces and feminine raspberry stained lips” of the makeup looks, including which products were used. You can view the sketch over at the source.
Happy Birthday, Katie!
Happy Birthday Katie!
I have put up new layouts in the gallery and main site as you can see. I used the brand new C Magazine photo shoot for the layout. If it’s still showing some of the old site, hit Refresh (F5) again and it should correct it.
Hope you like it!
I have put up a brand new layout on the site by yours truly featuring one of my favorite Katie shoots, the J Crew one from earlier this year. The Romantics opens in selected theaters tomorrow (Sept. 10) so if it’s playing in your area, be sure to go and see it!
I will be doing a much-needed content revamp on the entire site and switching all of the content over to WordPress, so the links above may not work. Thanks for your patience and hope you like the new look!

I’m working on the content so that’s why there’s a lot of ‘not found’ pages. They should be completed in the coming weeks!
