Is La Garçonne Opening a New York Store?

Let’s talk all things La Garçonne today. The online retailer (my favorite for years) is known for understated elegance with a tomboy flare and for carrying high end designers along with emerging talent. Not only am I excited about the new La Garçonne Moderne Collection No.5 (more on that later), but more importantly, the prospect of La Garçonne opening a New York store.


Nothing’s confirmed, but based on their Careers page, La Garçonne is looking for a store manager in New York… Which means a brick and mortar store might be opening later this year! I can imagine it now… A crisp white retail space with organic elements punctuating the spaces between racks of neutral hued designer goods. I am only speculating of course, but the store will most likely be downtown, somewhere near their SoHo headquarters. Tribeca would be nice.


While I don’t know anything for sure about the store, I do know that the La Garçonne Moderne Collection No. 5 was made with an artist in mind. While draping and sewing, there is nothing I’d like to wear more than the utilitarian pieces of this collection.

Nineties Now

The 1990′s don’t seem that far off, but believe it or not, the days of platform shoes, baggy pants and flannels was more than a decade ago. The nineties are back already and I want you to be more chicly prepared! I recently fell in love with and incidentally spent hours on the Editorial Archive blog. I continued to come across editorials from the 1990′s that could very well be in today’s Vogue, sporting the casual minimalism looks that nod to the nineties. Here are some oldies, but goodies in the terms of 90′s fashion. If you are going to go there, take note from these editorials and leave your baggy pants at home.

This is how I would do nineties now… all from La Garconne.

Epitome of Androgyny

One look that I never get tired of is the androgynous look. Androgyny is timeless, classic and forever curious. So imagine my delight when I opened this little gift from La Garconne today… a perfectly lit, effortlessly styled editorial featuring some of my favorite designers, and my all time favorite theme, androgyny.
