Report: Kaelen FW13 at MBFW New York

In all honesty: Kaelen was the presentation we were looking forward to the most. The previous collections were beautiful: structured, sophisticated and very powerful. So, were our expectations met at today's presentation at Pier 59? Absolutely.

Not only did the location -and its fashionable visitors - at a studio in the Chelsea Piers create an amazing atmosphere, the clothes were simply breathtaking. The color palette was kept rather neutral with blacks, greys and whites as a base to the accent colors deep purple and burgundy. The New York-based designer Kaelen Haworth incorporated a lot of different textures: laser-cut lace, knits, leathers and beautiful shiny jacquard. The highlight of the collection was definitely the flower print on satin and chiffon that gave a little bit of a whimsy to the strong collection. One of our favorite pieces (and trust me, it was hard to pick just one!) was the blush leather vest with fur details - very sophisticated and feminine!

Hands down, Kaelen has been our favorite FW13 collection so far and so worth skipping class for (oops!). Kaelen Haworth is definitely a designer to watch!

P.S. Just discovered: If you want to get to know the designer and have a tour around her apartment, click here! It is beautiful and definitely worth a watch!
