Created
WITH KINDNESS

A transparent, ethical production process provides the foundation for each Lafayette 148 collection, thanks to its very own manufacturing studio—a rarity of outside of the most elite European houses. The state-of-the-art, environmentally conscious atelier is located in Shantou, China, home to Lafayette 148’s cofounder Shun Yen Siu.

The airy, soaring structure provides a serene space for the L148’s fleet of European-trained artisans to focus on their craft, fusing time honored techniques with futuristic technology to create pieces of increasing complexity, and ensuring peace-of-mind in the knowledge that each collection is produced ethically and with extraordinary integrity. Start to finish, each piece never leaves their hands.

MATERIALS,
MADE KIND

A pillar of Lafayette 148’s evolution toward sustainability is a commitment to responsible sourcing. Lafayette 148’s internal textile teams work hand-in-hand with a global network of experts to develop luxurious materials that are ethically sourced, traceable, and kinder to the environment. Those that meet the highest standards are designated “Kind” qualities. Fall 2021 represents Lafayette 148’s most sustainable collection to date, featuring a wide array of superior, ethically sourced materials, from a vast KindWool program to KindSilk and an array of innovative KindMade textiles crafted from regenerated fibers. In addition, the collection features expanded offerings in KindCashmere and KindCotton.

KIND
BY DESIGN

Creative Director Emily Smith’s design approach fuses craft and creativity with a deep understanding of a women’s needs. “We’ve always made a conscious effort to design for real women. As women ourselves, it’s a natural part of our process.” A unique pattern is created for every size. The in-house design team then finesses proportions and refines the silhouette to work in harmony with a woman’s body. A final fit test ensures each garment fits flawlessly. It’s a kind approach to design—one that allows Lafayette 148 to offer fifty-eight sizes in its line, making it one of the rare luxury American fashion houses creating beautiful clothing for women everywhere, regardless of size or shape.
