LA Designer Kevan Hall Rocks NYFW for Spring 2022
It’s been 20 years since Los Angeles Designer Kevan Hall rocked New York Fashion Week. It’s was wonderful to see his return to the runway with a new collection for Spring/Summer 2022 called Brushstrokes. Mr. Hall is a favorite of many Hollywood wives and celebrities. Celine Dion, Sharon Stone, Charlize Theron, Salma Hayek and Irena Medavoy have all worn Kevan Hall designs. His evening gowns regularly appear on the red carpet at Los Angeles entertainment industry events. His recent New York Fashion Week Show was full of elegant dresses and gowns that were Oscar worthy.
Kevan Hall’s Spring 2022 collection, “Brushstrokes,” is homage to the elegance of a 1930’s Parisian multi-culture. By referencing Christian Berard’s signature painting style, Hall draws upon the influences of Berard’s contemporaries– including Swiss sculptor, Alberto Giacometti, and interior designer, Jean Michel-Frank. Hall’s collection translates trompe l’oeil details and architectural paneling into streamlined silhouettes for the modern woman. Collar and pocket details mirror accents found within a French interior.
The “Brushstrokes “are present throughout the collection, whether on hand-painted jacquards or evoked through textured wovens. The color palette is a thoughtful and precise mixture of coral shades, alabaster, lavender, celadon, and fuchsia.
Hall’s Spring collection is marked by artistic touches with elegant restraint–there’s nothing over the top in this collection. These are dresses that will be in fashion for many seasons.
