Style.com: Jenni Kayne Spring 2013 Review
NEW YORK, SEPTEMBER 6, 2012
By Alison Baenen
Jenni Kayne carried over her Resort collection’s loosely surf-inspired vibe into Spring. Prints, color-blocking, and a strong palette were the key messages here. A blue and rust ethnic pattern, developed in house, was shown neck to knee on a snug cropped top and slim pencil skirt. You could wear the pieces apart, but the prints looked chic pulled together. Kayne also made a statement with her signature four-ply suiting, done this season in hard-to-ignore pops of fuchsia and daffodil yellow. Despite being highlighter bright, a short yellow suit paired with a worn-in, painted baseball tee—a casual first for Kayne—had the refined ease the designer has cultivated over the years. Also easy: a dark, oversize poncho and matching flat-front pants. Part of the collection’s first delivery, they’ll make smart transition pieces when winter thaws into spring.
