inspiration of the moment

LOULOU DE LA FALAISE



















Loulou de la Falaise (1948-2011) left an extravagant mark on this world with her beautiful designs, colorful accessories, and collaboration with Yves Saint Laurent.  Always stepping outside the box, Falaise led the way with intricate accessories. She never failed to incorporate a vast amount of drama through color, shapes, materials, and fabrics.  If there is one woman to thank for the exciting costume jewelry existing today- it would be Loulou.


in regards to her style: "I would say I was a tomboy gypsy."


Loulou de la Falaise design's lived on to inspire trends today.  Hudson recently dedicated a colorful, trendy jean that is bright during the day, but once the clock strikes midnight- turns sassy with a neon strip. check them out here

Thank you for keeping color alive Loulou!
