I love the effortless lady-like styling in this collection from Lyn Devon. Simplistic, but beautiful prints and wovens perfectly accent the sleek garments. This collection is a reminder that sometimes less is more. As a print designer, I am always drawn to the splashy print collections with bold colors and of course, print and pattern mixing. But I have to ask myself, how many customers actually want to wear/buy these looks? The challenge of bringing trends and prints to the masses is what excites and humbles me on a daily basis. Things may fly on the runway, but the street is a much tougher critic. What design challenges do you enjoy?
