Lyn Devon Spring 2014: Marrakech Mod
Tapping a 1960s graphic-pop meets Moroccan Sahara vein, Lyn Devon's Spring '14 lineup quite literally lives and breathes Marrakech's sun-bleached colors and mythic, cross-ridden aura. Yet often when designers reference the North African oasis, their results are predictably ornate, flowing, and more... let's say, Nikki Beach-friendly over New England appropriate. But this wasn't the case here.
Antonio Azzuolo, Lyn Devon, and Carlos Campos
There are so many good fashion shows happening this week, you won't want to miss a single one. Antonio Azzuolo flexed his tailoring skills, Lyn Devon found inspiration in Mexico, and Carlos Campos kept things monochromatic.

Michelle Obama's Re-Election Campaign Wardrobe: Meet Her New Favorite Designers
Michelle Obama established herself as a fashion-forward First Lady back in 2008, wearing Michael Kors and Jason Wu with such frequency that nobody could deny they were among her favorites. But now that her hubby is up for reelection, Michelle has introduced us to a whole new batch of faves, many of whom are CFDA honorees and edgy, young wunderkinds. This year alone, we've seen Michelle step out in up-and-coming labels like Preen, Band of Outsiders, Wes Gordon and Lyn Devon--and she's also been giving love to more established brands like Balenciaga, Peter Som and Sonia Rykiel that were previously absent (or at least very rare) from her wardrobe in past years. But don’t worry – even though MObama’s cool factor has increased like, fivefold this year alone, she's still maintained loyalties with more classic, well-established labels like Michael Kors, Talbots and J. Crew, who we believe to be responsible for the green and yellow colorblocked number she wore in late June.
Lyn Devon Fall 2012: New Yorkers In Love
For Fall 2012, Lyn Devon created a wardrobe for a New Yorker in love, inspired by the classic tear-jerker, Love Story. The collection provided a ladylike take on menswear inspired items, resulting in subtle darts on a herringbone blazer and a boxy coat in the sweetest shade of pale pink. For the real girly girls there was a graphic “Love Bird” print (lilac and navy birds on white) and angora sweaters in a range of colors. As I went through the racks of clothes, it left me wondering why Lyn Devon isn’t a bigger hit on the street style circuit.
