Paul & Joe’s Parisian took a trip to the mountains for fall. Sophie Albou-Mechaly’s collection features a breadth of cozy knitwear, duffle coats and outsize scarves in plains, checks and jacquards; as well as prints and colors inspired by the traditional English hunt.
The brand is also broadening its reach for fall, re-launching in the U.S. with distribution partner Simon Showroom. The brand had retreated as the value of the dollar against the euro made prices too high for U.S. customers, Albou-Mechaly explained. Paul & Joe still has a handful of clients Stateside, as well as its own boutique in Los Angeles, but will be targeting a “new niche in advanced contemporary.”
