NEW YORK -- The collection: Jenni Kayne. The inspiration: Surf culture and easy urban sportswear. The look: Borrowed from the boys of summer. L.A.-based designer Kayne has mastered the summer suit in all its varied forms (with shorts or pants, an anorak or cropped blazer). Soft, silk crepe suits came in daffodil yellow or fuchsia with lipstick red accents; a teal houndstooth poncho with matching cropped, tapered pants, and a Southwestern print mini skirt with a matching cropped top. Color-blocked cotton raincoats and reverse seersucker trenches, crepe, cap-sleeved gowns, nubby beach cardigans, screen-printed T-shirts with abstract prints of a surfer in the water, and Kayne's signature D'Orsay flats in several summery colors rounded out this SoCal lifestyle collection.

Los ANGELES designer Jenni Kayne doesn't just want to be a household name -- she's looking to be legendary. "I want to be the next great American sportswear designer, like Ralph Lauren," says the 25-year-old, who launched her namesake collection in 2003, when she was barely out of her teens. Kayne's sky-high ambitions played into the decision to go for size when opening her first retail store, a rambling, loft-like space on Almont Drive in West Hollywood that opened Tuesday.
