“Jackie O meets Margot Tenenbaum” was Lyn Devon’s quick-hit sound bite for her fall collection. Peppy prints and rich colors like aubergine, fuchsia and red punched up simple, Sixties-ish silhouettes such as collarless rounded coats, cropped tops with high-waisted pants, and a nifty off-shoulder jumpsuit — all conservatively cut from the finest of fine fabrics.

Devon, a staunch supporter of animal rights, dropped leather and suede from her line last season and tries to make her clothes from cruelty-free materials. Here, her double-faced cashmere jersey was softer than fur; the triple georgette, light, smooth and seemingly indestructible, and the Ultrasuede looked and felt better than the real thing.
