Talking Top Tens: Lyndie Benson

Founder and Designer of BLEUSALT

02.12.18

A native Angeleno born and raised, Lyndie moved to Malibu 25 years ago with her husband at the time, Kenny G, to raise her two boys. Lyndie and Kenny met in 1983 when he wrote “Songbird” for her after their first meeting. After a life on the road, Lyndie picked up a camera to fulfill her creativity. Aside from photographing Kenny’s album covers, Lyndie held several shows and solo photography exhibitions. Although being the other half of a busy team and raising her children consumed most of her time, she began to document her Malibu lifestyle. BLEUSALT came to Lyndie from a friend who asked her to design a few pieces for her company. Not a designer by trade and only designing what she wants to wear herself in her life in Malibu, a collection started to take shape. As a single mother having successfully raised her children, it was finally time to put her energy into her work and use her talent and passion to the fullest. BLEUSALT is this first attempt, and we think it is music to our eyes. Follow BLEUSALT on Instagram and Facebook

Your biggest fashion faux pas:

In the 80’s, I had a pair of platform wedges from Kork-ease that were 8 inches tall and I nearly broke my ankle. Never again.

I don’t have just one, but I always add a piece of BLEUSALT to my day-to-day wardrobe for an instant boost of confidence and comfort.

The trend you hope never goes out of style:

Elbow patches should never go out of style; they’re too cool and so classic.

That it doesn’t feel like work.

The best piece of career advice you’ve ever received:

The best advice I ever received was “make your own path.”

Where does your credit card get the most use:

My credit card gets the most use from my travel expenses. I love to see new places.

At 9 a.m. each day, you are:

By 9 a.m., I’ve finished my morning swim and am probably on the phone with someone from New York City to talk BLEUSALT.

I swim when I wake up and right before I go to sleep to decompress.

What was the hardest part about launching your own clothing line:

The hardest part about launching BLEUSALT was putting out my ideas and creativity into the world for everyone to see.
