One designer who took Wyeth as his inspiration is Todd Magill. Born in Long Island, but currently working out of Los Angeles, Magill had a wonderful line called “Wyeth,” which was, to my eye, a particularly glamourous take on Andrew Wyeth’s corn-colored palate.
When I was in Palo Alto a few years back, I bought what I call my Jane-Austen-in-LA dress from Wyeth’s line. (The dress is much prettier on when one wears it with a little tan, instead of wan, skin.) I plan to wear it with these, in the spring.
And Pure Cashmere used the skirt on the cover of its 2006 catalogue too:
The fashion line Wyeth is, alas, no more, but Todd Magill has a new take, called Graydn. My favorite piece here is the green top (called “geranium”).
As a whole, the line is less glamourous and more work appropriate, and my verdict is out, for the time being, since I haven’t seen any looks that truly speak to me.
Has anyone in California, especially (where the line is more accessible), checked out Graydn?
