InStyle‘s very own founding editor and current editor-at-large, Hal Rubenstein has the secret on how to get happy this spring and it’s as easy as dressing in his latest collection for HSN! “The inspiration really is a continuation of beautiful tailored clothes for women in colors that remind me of spring,” Rubenstein tells InStyle.com exclusively during the HSN Spring Fashion Lounge event in New York City. But this isn’t the first time Rubenstein launched his eponymous line for HSN, just last summer he debuted his Fall collection, and this season he’s back with clothing that embodies happiness. “We thought a lot about orchids, they’re so elegant and sensual, and we went through those colors that we thought were natural to orchids and to take shapes that also are familiar to people—like the trench, the denim jacket, the pencil skirt—but do them in beautiful fabrics and colors so that woman can immediately gravitate towards them.”
The collection just made its debut on HSN today and now you can shop the full collection on hsn.com including the above Denise trench coat ($100), the Candy illusion stripe sheath dress ($80), and the leather Vanessa zipper waist jacket ($230). “I designed a collection for grown-ups, for women who have rich lives with families and other responsibilities, clothes that you can put on easily, zip up and you’re done. And in a color like that, in a fabric like that with beautiful laser cut perforations, it’s a shape that is so simple [and] so simply flattering,” adds Rubenstein.
