Celebrity stylist Jeanne Yang will appear at the Holmes & Yang trunk show at Chalk tomorrow And if you want to get your hands on some Holmes & Yang, we'd suggest hightailing it over there. (The show runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.)
It was recently announced that the luxury fashion line, which was founded by actress Katie Holmes and Yang (her longtime stylist), will close. The duo whipped up one last collection for Spring 2014, and Chalk is the only store in the Chicago area that stocks the line.
Chicago Magazine described the collection as "not loud or flashy, [with a] focus on fundamental wardrobe staples—dresses, jackets, pants and jumpsuits—that endure season after season."
Chalk co-owners Carrie Kane and Sharon Watrous told Chicago that some of their favorite pieces from the new collection are the suede "Dancer" jacket ($2,499), a striped crewneck with cutout detail on the back ($475), and a sleeveless Italian sundress ($1,295.)
