Looks from the Lyn Devon fall 2011 collection.
A native New Yorker who finds her inspiration in the classic corners of modern American iconography (think Audrey Hepburn, Geoffrey Beene, Ralph Lauren), designer Lyn Devon brings precise tailoring and impeccable finishing to clothing you can live in. Her sportswear designs have earned her numerous awards, including the prestigious Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Award, and in 2008, after the debut of her fall collection, Style.com included her among their list of “the season’s 10 most promising talents.”
The current fall collection sees Devon loosening the lines on her signature tailored pieces. She told Style.com, “I wanted to release the silhouette. I wanted to give her some air.” The collection does it with drawstrings and dropped waists in fabrics that are made to travel—fitting, as Devon designed it with a throwback trip on the Orient-Express in mind.
