I recently stumbled across the New York based, Toronto raised design talent, Kaelen Farncombe. Her namesake line, Kaelen, which was launched in 2010, has a clean, architectural aesthetic that I can only describe as “new classic”. The kind of clothes that can become the building blocks of a great wardrobe. I’ve posted a few of my fave looks from Spring/Summer 2011.
Design is simple and just enough, not at all overdesigned with strong lines created through layering and asymmetry. Fortunately, the collection is not sterile and there is a softness through some of the fabrications and the soft washed out hand dyeing.
