Off to Paris tonight. Visit us and the LFJSS12 collection in the Marais: 4 Rue des Gravilliers at the corner of Rue Beaubourg
This past weekend I enjoyed a much needed post-New York fashion week / pre-Paris fashion week break in the Catskills with Peter.
We stopped for sandwiches and freshly baked cookies at the Circle W General Store, and then checked into the adorable Rose Haven Inn in Haines Falls, NY (home to the state’s highest waterfalls). For dinner we visited Curran’s Tavern, where we fueled up for our hike on the Escarpment Trail with lots of local red wine:
We drove back via Tivoli (on the East side of the Hudson River), where we fell in love with the quaint buildings and incredible food. I can’t wait to return and stay at the Madalin Hotel and eat at Santa Fe Tivoli.
Last week after many long nights at the studio we shot our SS12 lookbook, titled “The Desert House”. We once again worked with photographer, Jason Ross Savage, illustrator, Bernadette Pascua, and floral designer, Taylor Patterson:
And we couldn’t be happier with the results:
The Kaufmann Desert House, designed by Edward Neutra in Palm Springs, which so expertly fuses practicality and high design was the primary inspiration for my new collection, where I posed the challenge of creating sophisticated, statement pieces that were simultaneously effortless and practical for the modern woman.
We’ll be showing the collection to press & retailers in NYC through September 20th and in Paris from September 29th through October 4th. And it will hit stores in very early 2012! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any inquiries.
