Androgyny at Its Finest

Ann Yee Fall 2010 Collection

ann yee fall 2010!

Despite your best efforts, this season’s boyfriend blazers, baggy trousers, and charming oxfords have you looking more like a confused English schoolboy than an edgy sophisticate.

For a tailored, androgynous style that doesn’t call your gender into question, look to knitwear specialist Ann Yee. The Nolita-based designer’s fall collection femmes up boxy men’s cuts with sexy zipper details and exquisite draping and ruching.

We’re smitten with her structurally superior jumpsuits, like the Amelia with Risky Business-in-the-back plunging reverse lapels and Tova with a crisscrossed silky swagger. The possibility of combining fluid separates to create an un-suit-like uniform has us excited to revamp our wardrobe. We’ll try the zip-back Kort top (which reverses to a vest) with cropped Brette pants.

To learn more about Yee (everything from current design inspirations to her My So-Called Life counterpart) and see the entire line, check out our Fashion Week coverage.
