|Jeanne Yang and Katie Holmes of Holmes & Yang|
I have the pleasure to know and to work with Jeanne Yang for quite some time (who is one of the most genuine and nicest of L.A. stylists) and I'm beyond thrilled to see her coming into her own with the latest collection of Holmes & Yang, her collaboration with Katie Holmes that began in 2009. I must say, Katie is one smart style cookie to team up with the likes of (her long time personal stylist) Jeanne, who has a sharp and well-honed eye for simple and stylish pieces to pair together to create sleek, effortless looks for today's "It" girl.

I am also a firm believer in the notion that it is much harder to look "together" in a casual sense than it is to "dress up", which is a credo for the design duo. Really, it is a fine line to do such a thing as "stylish casual" but if its done correctly, it has amazing results. The key to this is wearing well crafted pieces that are simple in boldness and heavy in the subtle, refined details. Holmes & Yang was born out of this idea and has created the right pieces to bring it forward, I believe. By sourcing top-of-the line fabrics and using the best craftspeople to make their collection right here in Los Angeles and New York, Holmes & Yang are bringing forward into the closets of us stylish denizens of the world the keys to easy dressing, stylishly, one great piece at a time.
