Toronto Native Launches Edgy yet Work-Appropriate Collection

Kaelen Collection Launches

kaelen collection launches!

Gone are the days when scrunchy socks, high-tops, and telephone-thick shoulder pads announced you were worthy of holding a 9-to-5.

Now that’s what you wear when you go out dancing.

But on occasion, we’d like to look like gainfully employed grown-ups (even if we swear to never act like them), and for that we’ll turn to Toronto native Kaelen Farncombe’s elegant eponymous line.

A bomber jacket-inspired blazer, leather-trimmed skirt, and luxe dress with sexy cowl swagger in the back are perfectly work appropriate yet still have personality. The simple black, white, and gray palette with pops of Yves Klein blue and ballet pink makes precaffeination coordinating possible.

Rethink the suit: Make an effortless, modern uniform by pairing wool ankle-tie pants with a feminine layered silk tank. Stow your gangsterish pinstripe suit, though. Unless it’s a performance review, you don’t want to appear to be working too hard.

Available at Intermix, 98 Prince Street, at Mercer Street (212-966-5303); 1003 Madison Avenue, between 77th and 78th Streets (212-249-7858). To see styles, go to kaelennyc.com.

Win it! One lucky reader will win a Kaelen Godet twill jacket. To enter, e-mail kaelendailycandy@kaelennyc.com with your full name, size (XS-L), and mailing address. A winner will be drawn at random.
