Kenneth Cole Collection: High Price, Higher Design

I was very aware of the Kenneth Cole Line as a matter of fact I’m pretty sure every American is very aware of the Kenneth Cole Line. It is what I consider perfect workwear. It just blends seamlessly into your daywear wardrobe for great office looks. I know I keep saying office but to be honest I always envision his main line as geared towards working professionals like Liz Clairborne back in their heyday.

Upwards and onwards for the KC brand it seems for the philanthropic designer is coming out with a new higher priced line made in super luxury fabrics. Black is still the DNA of the brand but a few splotches of blue and marron have found themselves into the mix. Prices start at 400USD and it pretty much climbs from there.

Here is a look of my faves from the offering of both womenswear and menswear with a few accessories sprinkled in. Enjoy.

My Pick of Places to be FNOnyc (Fashion’s Night Out) Sept. 10

OK….orignally I’d decided upon 30 events but according to the cute and handy map on the FNOnyc website they were just so far apart. I then made the decision to break into nice tidy packages which worked out much better.

LOL, I’m not superwoman and neither are you. My suggestion is if it is not an invite only event…try to hit up at least 4 spots. It may be fashion night but wear comfortable Stylish shoes….be prepared to walk! I’m gonna fix up a cute little outfit for FNOnyc in a bit using my fave High Street retailer ASOS and my favourite designer online retailer TheOutnet.

What is beautiful about is that there will be soo much giveaways and many shopping incentives as well as the amazing FNO NYC Fashion Show to start it all on the 7th of Sept.
