BUZZNET: Describe your own personal style in 10 words or less.
Jena Kane:Comfortably sexy, city girl meets modern hippie.
BN: What are some of your fashion must haves? What is something you can’t live without?
JK: Black eyeliner & my favorite denim piece.
BN: Who are your favorite fashion icons?
JK: Kate Moss, Sienna Miller, the Olsens. I love bohemian elements mixed with more modern pieces- messy mixed with neat. I also love Leighton Meester & Blake Lively for their fashion forward, young & fresh styles. And my favorite designers are those who are extremely creative with graphic elements & colors- such as Jeremy Scott and Ashish. When clothes become art, and vice versa.
BN: Describe your clothing line in 10 words or less.
JK: Fun, Love & Rock ‘n’ Roll.
BN: Where do you find your inspiration?
JK: Music, (I’m a huge classic rock fan), the city I live in, New York, & my immature sense of creativity- I try to channel my inner ‘little kid’, because I have been drawing since I was able to hold a crayon. I believe that people should never give up thier ‘little kid’ mentality & creativity. It really is liberating.
BN: Tell us about your all-time favorite piece you have created and why it’s your absolute favorite.
JK: When it comes to designing for my line, Spoken Heart, it is SO hard to pick a favorite, because the whole line is like my baby. But if I had to, it would currently be our ‘Lovestruck’ cut-off tank, because so many processes went into it, and it’s the first time we have ever tried to achieve an ombre affect with dyes. I can’t wait till it gets warmer out so I can wear it more often!
BN: What are your plans for the future? Upcoming projects? Collaborations?
JK: Right now we are just finishing up with new summer items- new washes, dyes, cuts and printing methods. It has been so much fun experimenting with fresh techniques. Now we are just in the process of shooting the line & putting it up on the site!
BN: Where can we find (and buy!) your work?
JK: You can shop Spoken Heart Couture @ www.shcouture.com
