Two days ago I had the pleasure of discovering New York designer brand Lafayette 148 NY at their trunk show in Halifax, showcasing their Fall 2014 collection. The beautiful pieces are the epitome of quality, elegance and professionalism, and promise graceful fall wear for daytime and evening, office and cocktail. Sound like your cup of coffee? Join me on a tour of my top choices from the L148NY Fall 2014 collection, starting with this business beautiful grey dress!
This detail is consistent across Lafayette’s line, hiding the back zip under a complementing band of fabric. It’s a simple yet effective way to maintain the sophisticated, well-constructed work Lafayette is known for.
Hold up, take a second look at that cityscape dress up there – how cool is that print? As a total city girl and someone who goes to a lot of business functions, this dress is a dream. It’s modern, chic, form-fitting and totally professional. And if a dress isn’t quite your style, it also comes in this jacket:
Speaking of jackets, a fall collection wouldn’t be complete without gorgeous outerwear. The quality of materials and the sheer craftsmanship of the details in these pieces are breathtaking.
This beautiful reversible coat in soft leather blends warm brown and grey in a light coat for fall. It’s the perfect day-to-night coat, one you can slip on over a pantsuit to go to the office, then wrap over your cocktail dress for evening drinks. Don’t you just love its warm, neutral tones? As an added bonus, it’s reversible!
Then there’s this gorgeous coat in the best unexpected fall colour, electric blue. Another perfect example of day-to-night wear, this coat compliments almost any outfit and any body type. Its subtle details and energizing colour combine to give you a coat that will brighten up any fall, late summer, or even early winter outfit.
So, what do you think? I’m completely in love with Lafayette’s collection. My favourite piece overall has to be…all of them! But if I could only buy one, it would be that cityscape dress. It’s just so unique! That’s what I love about Lafayette 148, every piece is unique and impeccably constructed.
