New York City – This September 12, Kevan Hall made a triumphant return to New York Fashion Week with his collection for Spring/Summer 2022, “Brushstrokes”. The new collection is evocative of the Parisian multi-culture of the 1930s while remaining true to Hall’s signature style and Hollywood glamour.
Drawing inspiration from painter Christian Berard, sculptor Alberto Giacometti, and interior designer Jean Michel-Frank, Hall combines these art forms into streamlined designs. These translate into sophisticated details and silhouettes throughout the collection: collar and pocket details reflect accents found within a French interior, and brushstrokes are present throughout the collection, whether on hand-painted jacquards or evoked through textured wovens.
Hall chose an elegant and delicate fusion of lavender, celadon, fuchsia, alabaster, and coral shades for the color palette. This thoughtful selection of colors and hues allows some of these garments to remain of choice throughout all seasons.
Many legendary figures from the fashion industry were in attendance at the show, including Teri Agins, Constance White, and Harriette Cole. Fellow designers Byron Lars, Sheila Gray, Sergio Hudson, Epperson, and many from Hall’s organization, the Black Design Collective, were also in attendance with Steven Kolb and CaSandra from the CFDA. – GM
