A look from Loulou de la Falaise

With a nod to the paintings of Ingres, Paul Poiret and the exoticism of Marrakech, Loulou de la Falaise confected a delightful collection with what she called "airy and loose silhouettes" adapted to "lounging in the sun."

With a nod to the paintings of Ingres, Paul Poiret and the exoticism of Marrakech, Loulou de la Falaise confected a delightful collection with what she called “airy and loose silhouettes” adapted to “lounging in the sun.” That translated into diaphanous silk dresses mixing stripes and paisley and a puffy pink skirt paired with a suede top. Baggy striped trousers teamed up with paisley silk tops, while tailored jackets with a flash of paisley inside channeled the eccentric English style de la Falaise mixes so well with her inimitable Paris chic. The clothes were spot on, so were the accessories, from the fish-skin bags to delectable jewelry, such as necklaces with tassels or feather-light necklaces spun out of horsehair.

Meanwhile, de la Falaise is busy on other fronts. She said she has a deal in the works for a boutique in New York with Yuta Powell, a retail veteran in Manhattan, who already sells de la Falaise’s wares in a suite at the Plaza Athénée. De la Falaise said Powell was searching for an address and hopes to open a shop within the year.
