Priory of Ten Debuts

Gotta look out for No. 10

priory of ten!

Barely a week in and your fall wardrobe already resembles a color-by-numbers book (one for jeans, two for trench, three for jorts with tights).

Change your formula with Priory of Ten.

For their debut, NYC-based designer Mei Liu (3.1 Phillip Lim) and business partners Eunice Quan and David Lin (both of The Board of Trade Co.) kept lines and hues minimal. Think a workingman’s clothes stripped down and reimagined into whites and dark neutrals.

Layer on a charcoal cotton sweatshirt for weekend warmth or take the sporty silhouette to work in a bone-colored lambskin tee and buckle-cuffed wool pants. An oversize silk blouse is risky business when worn as a minidress; polish it off with a topknot and red lips.

We love the abs-bearing, long-sleeve maxidress and the asymmetrical hem on a pleated chiffon and silk tank. Tie it up ’90s style (that’s back BTW) or let it flutter behind as you walk.

The drab days are numbered.

Available at prioryoften.com, $188-$625.
