Summary: Breakthrough designer Jenni Kayne's choice of an equestrian lens for her Fall 2010 collection brought to mind all the clean lines, rich fabrics, and lush colors commonly associated with the season. Her angle seemed to be a juxtaposition between the masculine tailoring of the jockey image and the slim-cut, fitted silhouettes of womenswear. Traditional cool weather fabrics like suede, leather, and wool got a modern makeover in draped minis, cut-out dresses, and a slouchy mudcloth jacket. The subdued palette of neutrals was punctuated here and there with a bright zest of color—an electric punch of purple in a slim-fitting pant, the luxe, mustard pleats of a skirt, and the occasional candy-colored pout. Overall, Kayne succeeded in created an easily wearable array of separates, capable of being mixed and matched for a look that's equal parts edgy and refined.
