Benjamin Channing Clyburn & Sonia Yoon are the designing duo behind my new favorite line. Their collections are the perfect blend of feminine and funky. Simply put, I've become obsessed.
I discovered the label after Molly Sims wore a top to a West Hollywood event we attended. Soon after, I purchased the most adorable grey Bensoni coat. I just love it's oversized patent leather buttons.
Most recently, I wore their charcoal and black scoop neck dress to a cocktail party at Silver Lake's Confederacy Boutique--where I had a total "Devil Wears Prada" moment. A guy approached and complimented me on my dress.
"Who are you wearing?" he asked. (I'm used to asking that question--not being asked it.) Little did I realize, it was the down-to-earth designer himself with Yoon by his side.
I interview stars all the time and rarely find myself at a loss for words. On this occasion, forget star struck--I was awe struck.
You *must* check out their line. Below are the items I'm currently eyeing:
Poor economy or not, something tells me I'll be making another purchase soon. Their designs are too tempting to resist. Check out Bensoni.com to view their entire collection.
