House of Fraser is exclusively introducing Kenneth Cole New York for Autumn/Winter 09 as it makes its UK debut. Established stateside as a fashion power house that has redefined Manhattan style, the exciting new womenswear lifestyle collection offers modern tailoring, smart outerwear and refined casual wear.

Since its launch in 1983, Kenneth Cole has stuck firm to its belief in providing innovative urban fashion. The label encapsulates city living with a keen focus on contemporary style. Set against a dark colour palette of black and grey, slick suiting anchors the range with architectural shapes, technical fabrics and clean silhouettes that give the range a real point of difference.

Heralding a new style of urban dress, the humble work shirt is updated in white poplin and re-designed with an elegant frill-fronted trim. Versatile Kenneth Cole dresses in shades of cherry red or black are worn with cropped leather jackets with a military twist; taking the look from day to evening. Animal printed chiffons provide a nod to 80s power dressing reflecting one of the season's hottest trends.

Attention to detail is a strong focus with a range of casual separates for relaxed dressing that balance the dual work to weekend wardrobe. The range of knitwear in fine gauge merino wools with button and pleated trims add a cosy yet sophisticated element to the collection. These separates work well with the chic range of Kenneth Cole handbags and purses, available in utilitarian tones, including black, tan or grey as well as deep jewel shades of amethyst or emerald green. The range offers unrivalled levels of choice and style with new deliveries every month.

With an established celebrity following including the likes of Sharon Stone, Cindy Crawford, America Ferrara (Ugly Betty) and Blake Lively (Gossip Girl), Kenneth Cole New York is both versatile and stylish. Exclusive to House of Fraser, the range will be available in 20 stores nationwide and online and includes the diffusion line Kenneth Cole Reaction.
