Janessa Leoné and ANINE BING are brands that are used to being in the spotlight. Both labels have been spotted on celebs (Kendall Jenner has been seen wearing each of the brands) and it's no surprise — each one offers timeless pieces that can easily be worn no matter your style. Now, all eyes are sure to be on each of the labels again with a new collaboration between ANINE BING and Janessa Leoné debuting on Oct. 11.
The capsule collection, which features three unique hat styles, is inspired by both brands' effortless aesthetics and will without a doubt be all over Instagram this winter. And while many celebrities have rocked both designers (Jenner has been seen wearing a black ANINE BING bralette and Janessa Leoné's Klint hat), you don't need to have an unlimited budget to afford a piece from this new collection. The hats range from $207 to $230, so you can wear the celeb-approved brands for less than $250.
The luxe, moody feel of the collection may surprise Janessa Leoné fans who have flocked to the label's minimal designs, but it was actually a dream of the designer Janessa Leoné herself for some time. "I’ve been wanting to design a rock-and-roll focused collection for years, but my desire to maintain a minimal and elegant collection superseded the edge I was wanting to bring,” Leoné tells The Zoe Report via email.
Leoné found it easy to bring that edginess from concept to creation when working with ANINE BING founder and Chief Creative Officer Anine Bing, who is known for her use of tough, edgy details. “Anine embodies that undeniable rock and roll essence and came to the design table with the confidence and clear vision to execute the collection," Leoné says.
This is the first collaboration for ANINE BING, which brings the classic, effortless style the brand is known for into the pieces of the collection. “I am so proud to have worked with Janessa to create three unique styles that capture our brands so well,” Bing says in an email. “These hats are true statement pieces for the modern wardrobe."
The collaboration, which seamlessly combines Janessa Leoné's quintessential hat designs and the timeless style of ANINE BING, provides elevated, moody pieces that will add sleek touches of the western-chic trend to any outfit without overwhelming. "Each one of the designs was created so the dynamic women wearing them can feel confident," Bing says. "They really are that perfect finishing touch to an effortless ensemble."
