Daniella Kallmeyer has been putting women in suits since the debut of her Kallmeyer label in 2012. It has taken that long for the rest of the fashion world to fall in love with them.
“We’ve been doing this from Day 1,” said Ms. Kallmeyer, who has been designing clothes for 15 years. “Just let women wear suits. It’s a uniform — men get to wear uniforms. Men get to have these signals and identifiers that are part of a code of dressing.”
Tailoring is what the label is known for. The actress Sarita Choudhury wore a Kallmeyer zebra-print trench on “And Just Like That …” She was also photographed after the Kallmeyer spring 2024 show in September in the label’s pleated black trousers and a white shirt with a long pointed collar.
The feminine aspect of her clothes “is always so secretly placed, never obvious,” Ms. Choudhury wrote in an email.
Queen Latifah was dressed in Kallmeyer for an October cover of T: The New York Times Style Magazine. Gwyneth Paltrow, Rachel Weisz, Christie Turlington and Chloe Fineman have all worn the label too.
