Catherine Malandrino came to New York from her native France 13 years ago, fell in love with her future husband and business partner, Bernard Aidan, and launched her own collection, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this season. This fall — with a wink to the milestone — Malandrino is reissuing the iconic flag dress that put her on the fashion map, publishing a book with Assouline on her 10-year career and unveiling a new retail concept — a 6,000-square-foot Catherine Malandrino Maison in Los Angeles that features a boutique, library, cafe and garden.
