As much as we’d often like to while away the hours ensconced in the sweetly-scented safety of our boudoirs, life tends to make that endeavor a little difficult. But thanks to the newly launched debut collection from San Francisco designer Lorian Lindsay, we can at least take some of that sultry appeal with us when we head out and about. Inspired by antique French boudoir scenes and Art Deco paintings, the collection of dresses, pants, tops, coats and accessories roves from party-ready dresses in pink silk to ultra-versatile slim-fitting pants in stretch silk crepe.
“I try very hard to provide my customers with a product that is not only contemporary, feminine and fresh, but also environmentally conscious and impeccably made,” the South Lake Tahoe native and Academy of Art alum tells us.
Lindsay puts an emphasis on high-quality fabrics, such as naturally organic silk, Italian wools and faux suede. All production and manufacturing takes place in San Francisco.
Standouts that caught out eye include the a high-necked coat in metallic wool, the raw silk and suede shirt dress (first image above) and a very on-trend necklace boasting fall’s ubiquitous tassels.
Stay tuned for more from Lindsay, whose work will be popping up at local trunk shows this fall. For orders, contact the designer directly via her web site.
