Winter wear tends to default into a sea of sameness: dark patterns, thick fabrics and dressing for warmth over style. But on days you feel like shaking it up by showing a bit of skin - if only to give your body some room to breathe - something lace is perfect.
This is how you let your skin breathe.
Around here, the queen of lace is Valérie Khalfon. We first noticed them in the south of France on a buying trip a while ago, and we immediately knew we had to find a home for the line in our store.
This dress is perfect for work and after work.
This trendy Parisian house started out as blouse designers, but have become synonymous with haute couture lace. And as much as we love their style, we love their story more. They position their clothing as being created “for women by a woman,” and that comes through in every piece. Sleek, feminine and easy to wear in any season, Khalfon clothing has a place in any closet.
A little heat for a chilly night out.
The other day, a customer of ours came in to pick up a few new pieces for the holiday season and Khalfon was an easy choice. Showing up at a Christmas party with a bit of lace turns heads and brightens moods. It’s sexy without being too revealing. And the patterns let you simplify your accessories: simple stud earrings let you comfortably wear a hat or ear-warmer on the way in and out without worry. And a simple necklace is all you’d need to complete the outfit.
Gorgeous for any occasion.
So if you see lace as a May-to-September style, think again. Next time you’re in the store, ask us to see some of the Khalfons we have in stock. But don’t wait too long - the word’s out and they’re not staying on the rack for very long.
