Kevan Hall dazzled attendees with his Fall 2023 collection, titled FACETED, which drew inspiration from the timeless standard “Diamonds Are Forever” and the glamorous rise of Dame Shirley Bassey in the 1950s. The designer’s gemstone palette featured a range of hues, from emerald and sapphire to ruby and amethyst, which provided a striking contrast to the luxurious velvets and buttery crepes used throughout the collection. Hall utilized crystalline structured materials to achieve a prismatic effect on many fabrics, producing a colorful spectacle for the eyes.
The collection included high-gloss metal accents, which grounded the Parisian classics and modern sleekness aesthetics in the present day. Additionally, Kevan Hall’s signature incomparable tailoring and sensuous draping silhouettes were showcased in the collection, along with hand-carved fur coats and matelassé, sculpted into images of roses, and unique tri-colored guipure laces woven from dyed threads.
Diamonds from Jeffrey Daniels Unique Designs for Gem Platinum were used to create high-style jewelry that adorned almost every look, including the shadow fox poncho and cut-out evening dresses. Award-winning journalist Constance White noted that Kevan Hall’s work reflected the energy and vibrancy of American fashion, adding to the designer’s well-established reputation in the industry.
Hall, who knew he wanted to be a fashion designer from the age of seven, stepped into the role of Design and Creative Director at the house of Halston in the Fall of 1998. He launched his signature Kevan Hall Collection in 2002, emphasizing the purity of style and his signature incomparable tailoring. The designer also founded The Novus Forum, a fashion destination for global buyers during the New York fashion market, and the Black Design Collective, which provides support and opportunities for young costume and fashion designers.
Overall, Kevan Hall’s Fall 2023 collection showcased his dedication to impactful simplicity, with luxurious fabrics and high-style jewelry combined to create a fantastic display of modern glamour. The designer’s innovative approach to incorporating gemstone hues and prismatic materials proved to be a stunning success. The show was a testament to the designer’s ongoing influence and legacy within the fashion industry.
