For the transitional season, Lafayette 148 New York focused on dressing women for their real lifestyles. The collection introduces boardroom-tococktail staples such as the reconstruction of menswear essentials and holiday cocktail dressing.
This season the design team lead by Chief Creative Officer, Barbara Gast, and Creative Director, Emily Smith, focused on giving her what she needs to replenish her closet. The new collection features menswear-inspired pieces but with femme touches. “The New Jacket” is tailored to perfection with an emphasis on a strong shoulder, making it a means beyond the wear-to-work standard. For the holiday months, we are offering an assortment of contemporary cocktail dresses in stardust blues as well as travel and leisure pieces that are polished casual and packable.
For the start of the new year, there is a new color infusion – green mixed back to heather grey in luxe, relaxed styling. Emily Smith kicks off pre-spring with five different scales of classic black and white gingham. She works the pattern on everything from a flirty summer patchwork dress to a fashion-forward reversible mackintosh coat. Closing out the season is a statement to the brand itself with New York City illustrated prints.
