Inspired by 1920's era of female empowerment, David Lerner's fall 2011 collection features a contemporary, sport, and maternity line. The collection is marked by classic and comfortable pieces with an edgy flair
David Lerner launched his signature collection of updated leggings in August of 2008. A strong passion for design and an appreciation for fashion brought Lerner to his newest venture, an inspiring collection of luxe wardrobe staples. The DL Collection immediately cultivated an impressive roster of celebrity clients including Halle Berry, Megan Fox, Nicky Hilton, Shenae Grimes, Miley Cyrus, and Hilary Duff. Lerner lives between New York and Los Angeles, and was inspired by the casual lifestyle of LA and the fashionable, street-style of New York. “I wanted to create clothing that combined both aesthetics that is flattering and comfortable. A versatile, incredibly wearable collection that makes women feel sexy and confident”, says Lerner.
The core of the DL Collection consists of fashion-forward leggings that are of the highest quality, edgy with great detailing. The DL design team adds flair by incorporating hardware elements such as heavy metal zippers, hook and eye closures, lace and sequin embellishments, as well as combining different tonal and fabric combinations with varied seam detailing. Combining style with ease, the standard fabric used in the DL Collection is of much higher quality than most leggings currently on the market. Supplex®, the fabric worn by the world’s leading dance companies, is what Lerner insisted on using because it prevents pilling and fading, while allowing the garments to retain a close, flattering fit. The entire collection is produced in New York City.
For spring ’09, Lerner launched the DL Organic Tee Collection, featuring updated basic bodies such as sexy scoop and v-necks, pocket tees, racer-back tanks and button downs. These perfectly slouchy T-shirts have been carefully created through organic techniques that create a stylish, natural silhouette. The collection is made from 100% organic hemp, one of the most environmentally friendly fibers in the world. Hemp requires no pesticides, fertilizers and very little water in its growth, making it one of our most efficient natural materials.
