Into its third season, Lapidus Vintage revisited some of its great archive coats, like one vivid orange 1955 design honed from 56 strips of felted wool, not to mention a loden safari jacket with patch pockets and a checked red-and-cream style made from blanket fabric. Olivier Lapidus, son of the house’s late founder, Ted Lapidus, is behind the collection. His father made LBDs for Edith Piaf (though she apparently never settled her bills for them), which inspired an intricately constructed fitted navy-and-black wool dress.
