Lafayette 148 NY Fall & Pre-Fall 2020 Collection
For Lafayette 148’s pre-fall and fall collections, creative director Emily Smith pushed aside an overarching, thematic idea and welcomed seasonal sensibility. While her usual muses of artists and their works were not at the forefront, artful ideas made their way into the collection, à la hand-painted florals and an Indian-summeresque palette. For instance, an easy tan dress with poufed sleeves covered in white blooms that felt perfect for high summer; ditto to a matching pant paired with nubby basket-weave inspired sweater, an unlined, breezy blazer and sleek topcoat.
Fall marked Lafayette 148’s strongest collection to date, offering up luxury appeal to a broader, younger audience.
