The Todd Lynn Fall 2010 Collection
In 2006 Todd Lynn debuted his much anticipated men's collection. On the surface he may appear to be new to the fashion game, but everyone should know; appearances aren't always what they seem. In fact, the designer had been catering to some of the biggest names in Rock and Roll (Mick Jagger and Bono to name a few) for quite some time before branching out and establishing a brand.
Todd Lynn’s fall collection, La Chasse, is the epic of gothic sleek
Any rock star or starlet would retain an instant image of edgy chic while wearing the clothing. Muted taupe, camel, black, and grays were the color pallet of choice allowing for the focus to be on the cut of the creation.
Minimalistic in clean lines, interest was made by the mixing construction of shiny and smooth. Both men and women models gated down the runway with the focal point on their shoulders. Whether it was fur, wool, or leather; over emphasized shoulders led the way for his structured silhouettes.
Trousers for both were tailored to the "T". The woman's design looked particularly comfortable with a fit of leggings, but exuding a quality only superior fabric can bring. The jackets were what caught my attention. The most attractive was a high neck piece with panels of fabric strapped to a full length frontal zipper which is so captivating it is sure to be clamored after by his celebrity clientèle.
Being held captive was the designer’s intent
As reported on style.com, Lynn's inspiration was the hunt; the hunt of the animal-hence the fur and the hunted returning the favor- the caged jacket. His vision was achieved. The collection invoked amazing garments for any fall wardrobe update.
