The shows are just getting under way, but it's a safe bet that clean minimalism will be one of Fall's big stories. That's good news for Lyn Devon
, who's been focusing on timeless, well-tailored separates for a while now. Her latest collection featured a cropped leather tee and skinny suede ankle pants—both very of-the-moment pieces—but when paired with, say, a long, belted cashmere vest or a wool sweater tied around the shoulders, the silhouettes evoked classic American sportswear more than the latest trend-driven offering. "This collection is not about anything fussy," the designer explained. "It's very straightforward." A black wool jacket with oversize pockets covered in acid yellow sequins felt unnecessarily busy, but on the whole, Devon's sharp designs should resonate well with buyers this season.
