For his Fall/Winter 2022 collection entitled Trading Post!, Kevan Hall envisioned a burgeoning time when travelers would meet to exchange wares, folklore, and handcrafted textiles from Mali to Morocco to the legendary Tarshish. The Detroit-born designer used regional fabrics accented with blackened gold and copper metallics. The womenswear collection includes textured prints inspired by Northern Africa transformed into timeless signature pieces. Hall also incorporated jacquards, matelassé, and brocades.
The showing was set among a warehouse of traditional and contemporary Moroccan and Middle Eastern furniture and antiques and started with elegant day dresses in abstract floral and animal prints then led into more sharply tailored pieces in weighted materials such as brocade, followed by Hall’s signature eveningwear ensembles.
After a 20-year hiatus from showing, this is his second show back on the runway. We sat down with Hall to hear all about it, including the must-haves to own such as a coat, a cocktail dress, and a suit, especially the Zebra one. Hall also filled us in on a new home collection he is launching with Saks OFF 5TH.
