Lyn Devon was a very laid back and relaxing presentation, unlike most of the usual hustle and bustle of Fashion Week. An all white room, with two to three racks of clothing, and a tall elegant and slim model gracing around wearing the newest looks. Imagine a European flare, with universal patterns and textures that are made to make even the most average American woman look effortless. Brown wooden platforms reminding us of the South border, mixed with bright and neutral colors to even the looks out. Tailored pants paired with fitting blazers are the most versatile of the collection. Imagine to see every woman wearing one of Devon's printed dresses and tailored, structured pieces in the future.
Alexa Curtis- What was your inspiration for the collection?
Lyn Devon- I wanted to create a feeling of a fiesta. South of the border. The versatile, traveling girl, like me. I got my ideas from my travels, and I put them on to my clothing. Handcrafted, handsewn silk pieces to remind us of the luxury of life.
AC- What is your favorite piece from the collection?
LD- The floral tee length dress with the mermaid slit. It has movement with the silk and cotton, and is easy to throw on. It's got this type of undone and unsaid ease, which just makes the dress so incredibly effortless. You don't have to overthink what the look is and what you should wear with it. Pair it with a blazer and heels or a cute trench coat and flats.
AC- What do you believe the number one spring essential is?
LD- A classic cream trench (holds up a beautiful cream colored trench we would die to have in our wardrobe) because you can wear it with everything.
AC- I noticed you used a shockingly different sort of fabric and texture with these pieces. Some are much heavier, while others are much lighter. Can you tell us where you got that idea from?
LD- I wanted to maintain my lightness and easiness of the pieces, but mix that effortless idea with fabrics that have texture and rhythm. Most of these items are hand crafted, like terrycloth chiffon or my pebble chiffon trench (holds up item.)
