KAELEN Spring / Summer 2016: Designer Kaelen Haworth introduces versatile ties, trimmings and suedes

Returning from an inspiration trip through the southern USA with the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) {FASHION INCUBATOR}, Canadian designer Kaelen Haworth envisioned her Spring / Summer 2016 collection to reflect the beauty and fundamental simplicity of the region’s landscapes. Stops in New Orleans, Austin, Marfa and Dallas in partnership with W Hotels brought sights both harsh and captivating – particularly the Texan desert. This is reflected in this season’s color palette, pale neutrals with pops of pink, navy and a bright chartreuse. Recently, KAELEN designs have been seen on singer/actress Zosia Mamet and comedian Ilana Glazer.

For Spring / Summer 2016, Haworth kept shapes simple with a focus on trimmings. Easy silhouettes with adorned ties and belts allow for pieces to be worn in subtle, different ways.

This October, Haworth will return home for Toronto Fashion Week for a special presentation of the Spring / Summer 2016 collection


KAELEN Spring / Summer 2016 will be available internationally at kaelennyc.com starting March 2016.
