[Day 2] consisted of casually walking out of my office and then darting to the subway to catch the train within my hour (…and a half lol) lunch break.
Absolutely beautiful presentation screamed of parisian-inspired summer. The los Angeles-base brand, L'AGENCE debuted for its third year at NYFw. They brought the French Riviera to chelsea art district in New York last week and I was in love the moment I laid eyes on the designs.
The collection fused it's classic luxury fabrics with couture-inspired tailoring, for their diverse and, jet-setting women. Silk headscarves, slips, and tweed suits were accompanied with the latest footwear from Chloe Gosselin. Embracing a love affair with the Mediterranean, L’AGENCE SS20 captures the essence of a laissez-faire lifestyle in romantic French fashion.
it came in the form of a garden rose print (a nice break from the popular solid denim and silks) and matching shorts suits. A belted shirtdress also punctuated the collection. These novelties were welcome. The jeans, blazers, camis, and slips will always sell, so why not incorporate a touch more oomph into the silhouettes or the textures? Maybe revisit collaborating with runway designers on denim, as he smartly did with J Brand? Though he emphasized the importance of staying consistent and following the demands of the customer, Rüdes has established L’Agence as a successful business; there’s room to grow.
Absolutely beautiful presentation…
