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.
