ABOUT THE SPRING/SUMMER 2022 ‘BRUSHSTROKES’ COLLECTION
The Spring/Summer 2022 “Brushstrokes” collection draws the elegance of 1930’s Parisian culture. By referencing Christian Bérard’s signature painting style, Kevan Hall draws on the influences of Bérard’s contemporaries – including Swiss sculptor Giacometti, Coco Chanel, interior designer Jean Michel-Frank, and Elsa Schiaparelli. This legendary time in history birthed a new intersection for fashion, theater, and interior design. By merging these disciplines, 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 cozy French interior. 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, celadon, turquoise and fuschia. Halls’s Spring collection captures a sense of painterly wit, paired with a refined and elegant restraint.
