A New Yorker, born and raised, Lyn Devon is a bona fide city girl who daydreams about cashing it in for a farm upstate. She let this idea guide her fall collection, which hit all her hallmarks — exceptional fabrics built into sportswear with a classic sensibility — while drawing out a younger, more playful energy. The hearty, rustic quality of the colors and materials, such as navy velvet, orange corduroy and a great nubby boucle in beige used on a peacoat, were a great fit for her look.

Devon shortened her hemlines, showing a gray, paperbag-waisted mini with a cropped turtleneck in a chunky melange knit, and worked in some novelty effects, covering an oversize “husband” coat in customized brooches. Her way with the girl-meets-boy tradition — i.e., pairing a nifty silicone-embroidered lace corset with bag-waisted velvet tuxedo trousers — felt extra-charming.
