Kelly Killoren Bensimon wears many hats: TV personality, author, editor, equestrian, mom, and now fashion designer. She is launching her very first exclusive collection En Ville x Pologeorgis at What Goes Around Comes Around in East Hampton, a town she has spent many years of her life in. The idea for her outerwear and embellished footwear capsule collection grew as an extension of her effortless style.

Killoren Bensimon is a successful entrepreneur and mother of two college-aged girls who found herself gravitating towards an easy outdoor slipper that could be worn anywhere from SoulCycle class to the horse barn to drinks with friends. The outerwear collection was a natural progression as she always completed her everyday fall look with a statement jacket. This collaborative capsule collection is special to Killoren Bensimon as she had the opportunity to create pieces that reflect her own individual style which so many adore. From effortless shapes to timeless pieces, Killoren Bensimon has everything from an Onassis inspired pea coat to a fur-lined luxurious raincoat to an evening shrug and her favorite chic animal printed fur coat.

The collection will be introduced this Saturday, August 4 at What Goes Around Comes Around in East Hampton for this weekend only, and then will be sold exclusively at pologeorgis.com and Kelly's Instagram, beginning in mid-September.

Hamptons.com caught up with Killoren Bensimon to hear more about her exciting first collection.

You seem to have done everything: successful real estate agent, author, former editor of Elle Accessories, model, mother, equestrian and television star. How have all of these experiences played a role in the design of your outerwear and embellished footwear capsule collection?

KB: Thank you for all of that! Wow. This capsule collection is special to me as I'm finally able to make what I love to wear, and need in my wardrobe. I, like every single working mom, have a very busy life which is filled with a lot of moving parts. I also found outerwear pieces to be crucial to completing a look. It can elevate the look of everyday workout leggings and add a fresh style to your denim.

Why did you choose the Hamptons to showcase your new exclusive collection?

KB: I have such a strong connection and admiration for the Hamptons. It's where I raised my kids, met my closest friends, and where I go to relax and decompress. It seemed natural to launch my line with my friends in the place I love the most.

What are some of your favorite pastimes in the Hamptons?

KB: I love riding with Bobby Campbell and John Whittenborn at BG Stables, having dinner at Bilbouquet, listening to music with Jayma Cardoso at The Surf Lodge, drinking rosé with Joey Wöllfer, riding bikes down Parsonage, and surfing at Wiborg Beach in East Hampton. Did I mention the lobster salad at Duryea's, farming at Sylvester Manor on Shelter Island, visiting the Dan Flavin museum, and how fun Moby's has become this summer?
