>> Lyn Devon's goal is to become "the fresh voice in American luxury sportswear." In her SoHo basement studio today, she showed off her latest effort in "reinventing the classics": but instead of sticking to her usual straight, sharp tailoring, she was inspired by images of ballet and dance to give her silhouette a little more movement. Hence, her Fall 2010 "beatnik ballet" collection: Devon suggests countering the newfound looseness of her dresses with a black turtleneck and a belted waist.
