Indie City: Ilana Kohn

Earlier this year I made a new friend—as in a new fashion friend. While I haven't met designer Ilana Kohn in person, I've become well acquainted with her versatile, cutting-edge, modern clothing line. I discovered her remarkable wares while on a San Francisco shopping excursion at Legion, a women's boutique in Chinatown. Immediately, I was wowed by the comfort factor and fashion-forward nature of Kohn's work. 

A relatively new line that evolved in 2011 following Kohn's illustrator career, this clothing line has the touch of a fine artist. With smart but subtle prints and sophisticated solids, it's the kind of line that you can wear all year long. 

Legion in San Francisco is carrying several items from the fall collection and you can see more of Kohn's work online at
