  • Katie Holmes and Jeanne Yang debuted a small 14-piece collection in New York

    Katie Holmes has had a lot to deal with over the past few months; a high profile divorce from Tom Cruise, her little girl Suri’s first day at school and preparing for her debut at New York Fashion Week.

    Yesterday saw Katie Holmes and Jeanne Yang introduce their spring/summer 2013 collection with a small presentation made up of just 14 key looks.

    Eschewing a catwalk, Holmes & Yang greeted editors and fashion journalists as they talked through the ideas and concepts behind their collection.

    Explaining why she’d decided to give a simple presentation rather than out on a runway show, Holmes explained to WWD that a smaller setting suits the Holmes & Yang brand.

    ‘We felt a presentation was more appropriate for the clothes we sell. It’s a little more our speed in the way we wanted to go about it, and more of a transition for us from meeting privately with buyers in a hotel room to going right to a big show,’ she said.

    The demure and simple looks – leather bomber jackets, blazers, camisoles and a hand-painted silk dress – are all made on US soil in either New York or Los Angeles and were teamed with Manolo Blahnik heels for the presentation.

    Wearing a black leather jacket, black trousers and a crème camisole from the collection, Katie worked her way with ease through the first challenge that she’s taken on post-Tom Cruise.

    Well done, Ms Holmes.
