Have you heard of Lyn Devon yet? Well you need to. She is redefining American luxury sportswear and has been covered in the pages of Vogue, W, Harpers, and the Financial Times. Not only is she the recipient of multiple awards including Fashion Group International’s Rising Star Award, and the prestigious Ecco Domani Award for Best Womenswear Design– she was also named by Style.com as “One of America’s most promising new talents”! I love her easy chic designs, thoroughly modern, the Lyn Devon collection brings precise tailoring and impeccable finishing to clothing you can live in.
Inspired by American icons like Audrey Hepburn and the collections of iconic American designers from McCardell and Beene to Mizrahi and Lauren, the former Ralph Lauren ready to wear designer combines timeless elegance with her own bold and spirited perspective.
I will be wearing her Spring ’11 collection in my daily life as both mom and fashion blogger. It’s hard to find clothes that I can attend trunk shows, lunch or meetings in that also make sense for my life with my son after school as I chauffeur him from tennis to golf lessons. In Lyn Devon, I won’t have to change as I switch out of career woman mode to mommy mode.
I love the playful color palette paired wtih graphic black and white. This is a polished collection that captures classic and feminine elements and making them modern and sporty. Can’t wait to layer the simple day dresses (especially the turquoise blue!) with the neon trench coat!
