Offsite: Canvas Comes To Jenni Kayne

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

It was our first big presentation of the Fashion Week, and already it was starting late. Granted, Jenni Kayne's Spring/Summer 2010 show was squeezed into a small retail space on Mercer in Soho, but with all the parties that happened last night, we had hoped things would have been snappier.

Once inside, Jenni's designs showed on a set of several models, who began in cream canvas ensembles, then changed to a bright canary, and finally concluded in blacks and greys for the non-California crowd. Speaking of the west coast, we have a feeling that these looks would do best there, what with the bare midriffs and bustier top paired with pleated shorts. On the other hand, that slouchy black boyfriend blazer positively reeks of downtown NYC, only now, not in spring.

And, if we can, a prediction for the rest of Fashion Week: we bet those round-framed glasses will pop up frequently, and you can thank Lady Gaga.
