Katie Holmes Dishes on Her 'Classics With a Twist' Clothing Line

It’s not just Katie Holmes‘s jeans that get fashionistas talking. The star has been slowly unveiling designs from her two-year-old Holmes & Yang line, co-designed by her stylist and friend Jeanne Yang, by wearing them to great acclaim on the red carpet. The two first had the idea for the label while going through Katie’s own closet four years ago as they both agreed that women, like men, needed wardrobe staple-based uniforms for everyday wear. “We want to create pieces a woman can wear over and over, and people won’t necessarily say, ‘Oh, you wore that last week,'” Holmes says. The two have since based their collection on what Yang–whose clients include Brad Pitt, George Clooney, and Eva Mendes–calls “classics with a twist,” which includes basics like blouses, trousers, jumpsuits, skirts, and cocktail dresses that retail on the much higher end ($945 for a blouse, for example). And lest one of Hollywood’s favorite rising fashion stars, Katie’s 4-year-old daughter Suri, be left out, Holmes & Yang is turning out a few matching styles for the pint-size set. “They love matching Mom,” Holmes says of her daughter and other sartorially minded girls. “And it’s a limited time during which they really want to.” To hear more from Katie and Jeanne, check out ELLE.com or pick up their current issue, on newsstands now. –Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

I’m confused. Is the price suggestion a typo like, opps… for “exapmle”? The clothing looks like something I would tend to buy. However, it seems that stars turn designers have price points that are not over the top, or the other extreme, something sold a Walmart. I would love to find something that the star/designer would actually consider to wear, found in a higher end store, with a midline price. I know, wishful thinking.

$945 for a blouse??? WTF are they thinking? The clothes are not even that great of designs to be $100 a blouse.

When you have more money than brains $945 for a blouse is cheap ! I find it pathetic that these people think that just because they are “designers” they can charge an arm and a leg for clothing that is nothing special – I can find similar styles (they are very basic) elsewhere for $20 !!! YOU ARE PAYING FOR THE NAME – free advertising for the designer all the way ! No thanks – not me !!!

during these tough economic times it’s ridiculous that a celebrity puts out a clothing line that only the well-to-do can afford! She would get much more support if she put out something that non-celebrities could afford – not to mention it doesn’t even look worth the price!

This is what happens when a person has to much time on their hands and doesn’t get out much!

For $945 it better lift, suck and tuck everything into place and make me look amazing and I doubt that will ever happen so she an keep her OVERPRICED clothing line!!!!!!

Boring. Just because you wear expensive clothes doesn’t mean you can design them! Why does she get to be so lucky as to just get her own line? Regular, and far more talented people, study the art of fashion design and then work their way up to this. Americans are so celebrity driven. Some would eat dog doodoo if a celebrity sold it!
Pitiful. And the rich just get richer! Disgusting!

I’ve seen her wear some of the pieces on red carpets and there isn’t anything great about them
