first look: priory of ten

a new line we love.

by ray siegel

Priory of Ten launched in 2012, but we have a sneaking suspicion that for designer Mei Liu, things are going the way of Philip Lim--by that we mean becoming major, fast. (We weren't surprised to learn that Liu was a design assistant there.) Her fall '13 collection literally covers ever single base: leather dresses and tops, peplums, relaxed-fit knits, sweatpants, a chambray shirt, a leather-sleeved jacket, collared silk blouses.

Plus, the mostly neutral palette is mixed with blues and reds for the times when you do want something brighter. Another thing we love about Priory of Ten: Liu posts her mood board on her site each season--who doesn't love a mood board? We've got our eyes on you, Liu! Shop our top picks from fall '13.
