“I love being creative in fashion,” Kyle told WWD of her return into the industry. Previously, Kyle had a collaboration with HSN and her own Kyle by Alene Too boutiques, which closed last year after several years of success as popular tourist attractions. “When I closed my store in Beverly Hills, I saw all these ‘for lease’ signs, and thought, yikes, what should I do?’ My husband told me to take a breath, and then I started to talk to Shahida, someone whose work I love and admire — and had been carrying in my stores, and wearing on the show for years.”
Kyle’s new partner, Shahida, has been her own line, Shahida Parides, since 2012, which is why the RHOBH star knew she was the perfect partner for her new venture.
“She has amazing caftans; I gave them away on the show and people went crazy,” said Kyle. “I know the fabrics and how I like to look and feel; Shahida can get it done,”
“I wanted to do a collection that looked fashionable, elegant, chic and comfortable, with beautiful wildlife and nature prints. I’m an avid animal and nature lover, and wanted that reflected in the line, which will give back to various charitable foundations,” the RHOBH star explained of her collection. The pieces of Kyle’s new line will retail for $200 to $500 and include “resort-ready jumpsuits, rompers, basic skirts, dresses, robes and jackets that go from day to night.”
“The people who watch my show and follow me on Instagram range, from young girls to older women, we want to have something for everyone,” she added. “It’s a lifestyle show some people watch for the fashion, the homes, the cars. They are watching everything we wear, and we have to be looking our best and comfortable.”
