Lyn Devon Dresses up the W Downtown

Lyn Devon
is easily one of the smartest and savviest designers on the scene. The Brown graduate is known for her sophisticated silhouettes and ability to fuse Uptown glamour and Downtown cool, so it makes sense that the W New York-Downtown would tap into her unique sensibility. Devon designed the new Wall Street-inspired wardrobe for staff at the W's Living Room Bar & Terrace.

Monday night, she was joined by long time friend and fan Lake Bell to debut her contemporary menswear inspired uniforms. Devon's playful take on the man's suit features tuxedo shorts and vests made from Italian cotton and sateen. “A woman in a suit is always the most confident and alluring woman in the room,” said Devon. “Wall Street may be swarming with men, but on the fifth floor of W New York – Downtown, it’s a woman’s world.”
