First Look: Wayne Resort 2012
Designer Lee Wayne and winner of the 2008 Ecco Domani Fashion Fund Award, is expanding her Wayne line. Starting this November Wayne will also include a newly added resort collection which will be sold exclusively at Barneys New York.
The heavily pregnant designer officially unveiled the Resort 2012 collection recently to a group of fashion types at the Cooper Square Hotel’s The Trilby. As expected the collection, which was said to be inspired by her recent travels to the Caribbean and “the French Riviera, stripes and cobalt blue,” was met with rave reviews. And, the inspiration is obviously evident. As the wares are bold and striking with the perfect mix of bright blues and stripes pieces sprinkled throughout the collection. We are particularly enamored with the Stripe paneled dress ($495) and the Drawn-waist jumpsuit ($380) form the collection. Both feel and look like ideal pieces from a fancy Caribbean vacay.
The 18-piece collection will range from $265 (for bright blue pocket shorts) to $495 (for the Stripe paneled dress).
