Since 1998, Liberian designer Abraham Pelham has been creating clothes on a made-to-order basis from his Paris studio. For fall, he’s launching his first ready-to-wear collection, Femme de Paris, a 38-piece lineup of mostly separates worked in classic shapes with Italian fabrics. “I wanted to bring [my line’s] craftsmanship, femininity and attention to detail to the American woman,” said Pelham, who, prior to his own brand, designed for Bill Blass, Calvin Klein and a Bergdorf Goodman private label. Standout looks in his new lineup include a black-and-tan striped double-satin coat with a high neck and gathered stitching, and silk blouses with sheer backs and engineered pleating.
