New York, NY — September 12, 2023 — Renowned fashion designer Kevan Hall takes us on a journey through time and elegance with his latest collection for Spring 2024 Fashion Trends. Titled “Cote d’Azur”, the collection draws inspiration from the refined and sophisticated era of Deauville, France, during the 1930s, where the epitome of fashion was showcased along the promenade by models donning the creations of leading designers. At Deauville, we also experience high jewelry first worn with a laidback casualness by wealthy socialites.
And just 1,335 kilometers Southeast is Cannes, synonymous with the red carpet and considered the biggest European runway for fashion and jewelry. The legacy of Deauville and the continued glamour of the Cannes Film Festival today, have combined to shape Hall’s trademark aesthetic that can be seen in every detail of his Spring 2024 Collection.
Inspiration from Deauville and Cannes Legacy:
“Our journey begins with a look to a refined and elegant time in Deauville, the seaside resort in the northeast region of France. If one were in Deauville during the 1930s, they would have seen a continuous display of the best fashions,” Hall explains. “Deauville and Cannes’ rich legacy created by artists, designers, and the film industry is the inspiration for the Cote d’Azur collection.”
Standout Looks from the Collection:
Among the standout looks was the Cote d’Azur grand plaid column bustier with a side slit. This piece exuded timeless elegance with its over-sized graphic pattern, while the bustier top added a touch of modernity. The daring side slit revealed just the right amount of leg, making it a perfect choice for a sophisticated evening affair.
Elegance from Head to Toe:
Another striking ensemble was the Multi floral bouquet sequin gown. This look effortlessly combined vibrancy with sophistication, making a certain must have for the 2024 Red Carpet season. Its impeccable tailoring and flattering silhouette made it a standout piece that perfectly captured the spirit of the Kevan Hall show with every stitch. These looks, among others, showcased Kevan Hall’s masterful craftsmanship and ability to merge classic and contemporary elements into stunning fashion statements. All shoes were from Nina Shoes and elegantly elevated each ensemble, adding a final flourish of style and sophistication to the collection.
Collaborative Partnership with Chatham:
Adding to the allure of this season’s collection is a collaborative partnership with Chatham, a luxury brand renowned for its laboratory-grown gemstones and diamond jewelry. Chatham’s commitment to merging art and science has made them leaders in the industry, with a history spanning over 80 years. The brand’s innovative approach to replicating natural gem-growing conditions has resulted in a unique collection that ranges from classic to contemporary.
Timeless Elegance and Innovation:
The Spring Summer 2024 Collection: Cote d’Azur showcased the designer’s continued dedication to timeless elegance, innovation, and storied inspiration. This collection is a celebration of the rich heritage of France’s legendary Riviera, merged with the visionary creativity of Kevan Hall and the exceptional craftsmanship of Chatham jewels.
