Ann Taylor's New Creative Director Debuts a Chic Collection

Long known for its career-woman staples and preppy separates, iconic American brand Ann Taylor is undergoing some major changes with the installment of a new creative director, Austyn Zung. As the current head of design for the brand’s Loft and Lou & Grey lines, Zung is familiar with the Ann Taylor ethos but is taking it in a fresh, trend-focused direction for spring. Citing Ernest Hemingway and his myriad travels as inspiration, the collection has a whimsical globe-trotter feel to it with vintage-inspired floral prints and the coolest matching sets. Put simply, it’s really, really good, so you can bet we’ll be counting down to its release in stores!
