We Are New York

 

Fall 2019 is a coming home at Lafayette 148 New York.
A return to where it all started—although we never left.

Fall 2019 is a coming home at Lafayette 148 New York. A return to where it all started—although we never left.

For more than twenty years, we’ve thrived in a city where new buildings rise in the blink of an eye.
Where art is the air we breathe. In a place where change is constant, we have never stopped
evolving. This season is an homage to our home, our heritage and all that we stand for. Striking,
powerful, and luxurious it represents the pinnacle of Lafayette 148 design.

We Are L148.

This season, Creative Director Emily Smith found the spark for her collection close to home. “New York City is a source of constant inspiration for me. You can see it in our cut lines, in the architecture of the garments, and in our palettes. There’s an energy and a New York sensibility that’s always present in our collections.” The campaign was photographed at one of New York’s modern architectural masterpieces, the Louis Kahn-designed Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park on Roosevelt Island. It’s an unexpected view of NYC, and one that’s uniquely ours.

We Are Architecture.

Our design approach is rooted in an appreciation for architecture. The campaign’s clean geometric structures echo the Fall collection’s architectural lines. A strong foundation is key, as seen in the season’s sumptuous, precision-tailored coats and trousers. Layerable pieces lend themselves to transitional dressing, while a focus on proportion, scale and construction is prominent.

We Are Women.

Every seam, every cutline, is made with a woman’s shape and sensibility in mind. Says Creative Director Emily Smith, “As women, we innately understand her needs and what works for her body.” The subtlest details—such as the placement of a seam or the shape of a vent—helps the garment and the woman wearing it move with ease. Says Smith, “As women, we’re always on the move, our lives are demanding, and we need clothes that can keep up with us.”

We Are Craftsmanship

A devotion to detail defines our designs. From pared-down pieces, such as an impeccably crisp white shirt, to luxurious accessories of increasing complexity, such as a cashmere wrap punctuated with fox fur and mink, elements of artisanship are woven into each and every piece. At a time when fashion is becoming faster, we believe in the beauty of design that’s lasting.

We Are Design

The season’s statement-making silhouettes and intriguing textures are rooted in an appreciation for art. A limited-edition snake-motif statement coat exemplifies the artistry. Italian lambskin is painstakingly hand painted in Italy, then embossed to resemble an exotic skin. It’s a wearable masterpiece and a true work of art that’s designed to endure month after month, season after season.
