  • Keep Cool in Capris

    Published Apr 05 2019 in capris, design, ethical, fabric, fashion, local, Made in Canada, Preview, spring, Spring 2019, spring looks

    What do you do when the going gets hot? Maybe shorts don't really work for you? Everybody needs a hot weather option to get them through the dog days of summer. That's where the cool comfort of our beloved Capri comes in.

    Model wear Diane Kennedy clothing designs ethically made from Bamboo

    From the widest leg to our slimmest leg, there's a Capri here for every body.

    Casting Capri

    Based on our Serene Pant, this Capri has a wider leg for anyone that has a preference for a wide, flowy leg. Designed to perfectly complement any of your warm-weather tops or jackets. Black and white stripes give this Capri a modern graphic look.  The Casting Capri can be dressed up or down to suit your needs. We want you to be cool and comfortable from top to bottom this Summer!

    Flight Capri

     

    If you love our Flex Pant, you are in luck! The Flight Capri fits just like our Flex Pant but with flat to the body pockets. These capris aren't tight on the leg but cut just right to give ease of movement and a more relaxed fit.

    Motion Capri

    This design started out as a unique sleeve.  We were fooling around with a twisted detail and it found its way into the leg of our Motion Capri.  With our signature smooth waistband, it fits just like all our classic pants. It also features handy, flat to the body pockets, a mid-calf length and the openwork detail at the hem.

    Cafe Legging

    Our classic Capri tights are back! They're a 3/4 length and a great warm weather bottom you can live in all summer. If you like our Rejuvenate Leggings you will love these shorter tights. The perfect thing to wear under a flowy tunic.

    Uptown Capri

    Coming soon are the Uptown capris with a wider leg and fun, asymmetrical pockets on the leg. Stay tuned for this new style by Diane Kennedy!

    Capri-length bottoms made from softest bamboo can be found in our online shop here.

    Visit us at our next Studio Shop to see everything in person. We’re open for shopping Friday, April 12th from 2-7 and Saturday, April 13th from 11-5 @ 1635 Powell Street, Vancouver B.C.

  • Spring 2019 Part II

    Published Feb 14 2019 in Preview, Spring 2019

    Spring Preview – Continued!

    Our newest collection is starting to fill our showroom and warehouse, and I’m excited to show you what’s in store for Spring 2019. Tunics, capris, pants, jumpsuits and even a dress this season. As always, these pieces are made from sustainable fabrics and completely manufactured in Canada, so you can feel good about buying and wearing them. In a continuation of our earlier preview blog, I’m giving you a look at our design process via our storyboards.

    Sensational Stripes

    Our Cinema Tunic blends stripes and solids with an asymmetrical neckline and a handy pocket, creating a striking style. Pair it with the breezy comfort of our Casting Capri for a coordinated look.

    Fabulously Flowing

    Looking for an easy-to-wear outfit that will turn heads? The Metro Tunic combines an abstract navy-and-white print with a solid navy panel and pocket. The gathered bottom of our Travel Pant adds visual interest. Together, these pieces create a modern silhouette.

    Lovely Layers

    Our Downtown Jacket has the convenience of a front zip so you can wear it as a Jacket or a Tunic. The Clever Cami makes an ideal base layer underneath. Add our wide-leg, striped Axiom Pants for a versatile ensemble.

    Effortless Ease

    Our Weekend Dress is a travel must-have; slip in on with some fun flats or cute sandals, and you’re dressed for anything. Our "Add Pockets" tunic can go over a Perfect Tee, but also looks great on its own with our classic Cafe Legging. (coming back this season)

    I hope this sneak peek has inspired you to imagine how sensational you’ll look in these separates. Stay tuned to our newsletter and website to find out when each piece becomes available, and remember that personal shopping appointments are available between 10 am and 4 pm on most weekdays – come find out how beautiful and comfortable you can be!
