Spring Summer Collection 2013 #3

Friends with Benefits is a designer
womenswear collection and truly a labor of love.
The linear detailing and romantic silhouettes of their
understated and expertly constructed collection
transcends the standard rules of dress and moves
effortlessly from day to night. Dynamic urbanite
couple Clark Sabbat and Lynn Levoy let emotion
and intuition guide their design process.

Friends with Benefits is a harmonization of
polarities: designer Sabbat's love of classic styles
and creative director Levoy's daring fashion sense.
Focusing the collection around their signature
draping, they allow their designs to evolve
organically, sometimes emerging from a singular
piece of fabric in their New York studio. "The fabric
is the pen and the dress form is the paper", says
the duo of their timeless collection. Inspired by the
sleek sightings of New York City and the diverse
women that inhabit it, the collection infuses the
fluidity of rich fabrics like cashmere, bamboo,
matte jersey, pure silk, and linen with strong details
like intricate pleating and ruching, and linear seaming to
showcase a woman's strength and whisper at her
