I am delighted to introduce you to a extraordinary clothing line I was recently introduced to by my good friend and style expert, Malia Anderson.
In the latest North Bay Woman Magazine, Malia, style contributor to the magazine and owner of Style by Malia, featured pieces by Les Lunes in her fashion spread. The model in the magazine is wearing the Casino Jumpsuit.
Once the photo shoot concluded, Malia needed to return the borrowed items to the Les Lunes showroom in downtown San Francisco. She asked me to come along, suspecting I would fall in love their beautiful clothing. She suspected right!
We arrived at the showroom, located just around the corner from the heart of Union Square in San Francisco’s famous shopping area.
Les Lunes is a sustainable lifestyle fashion house positioned in three cities: Paris, Shanghai and San Francisco.
Les Lunes was created out of a desire – a desire Founder and CEO, Anna Lecat, had to create stylish, comfortable, ec0-friendly, feminine clothing with a Parisian flair for women everywhere. She went about creating just that and, in a collaboration with Melanie Viallon, Chief Creative Officer, Les Lunes was born.
Malia and I spent well over an hour with Anna. Elegance, grace, intelligence, beauty and warmth are words that come to mind when describing this multi-talented entrepreneur. It’s apparent Anna cares deeply about the women who wear her clothing. She asked me detailed questions about the fit, feel, style and wearablity of her pieces while I tried on piece after gorgeous piece. I knew the moment I put on the Lace Dress, it would be coming home with me.
There are so many things to love about Les Lunes. So where shall I begin? Let’s start with the luxurious materials!
Les Lunes spent two years designing their Signature Rayon from bamboo. This sumptuous fabric drapes elegantly, is wrinkle-free (perfect for travel!), and incredibly soft. It’s also eco-friendly, totally unfussy and feels great against your skin.
It’s all in the details, as they say, and that is certainly true for Les Lunes. The sweetheart neckline with lace trim adds texture and allure to the Lace Dress.
As does the small keyhole cut out on the back.
The wide lace hem finishes the look and gives it an extra helping of “ooh la la!”
Les Lunes focuses on fit and function. They design their patterns in Paris and created their own measurement chart by gathering information from women in both Paris and San Francisco. Les Lunes is designed to fit real women.
The structure of the bodice is flattering and form fitting. I like the way shows off the curves of my body without being tight. I feel feminine and sophisticated in this dress, confident too!
Simply by wearing different footwear and jewelry or by adding a jacket or scarf, I can easily change the look of my Les Lunes pieces. I can go from a business meeting to dinner with my husband in Napa Valley. Or to brunch with girlfriends to running errands.
Les Lunes offers pieces for all aspects of your life from morning to night. They have casual pieces sutiable for yoga or walking to dressy clothing for both professional and social occasions. And they have gorgeous lingerie and sleepwear. I bought pair of George V Tanga in Dark Taupe that are not only comfortable but 100% husband-approved!
The Les Lunes Deauville Wrap Jumpsuit in white and aubergine is as chic as it is comfortable to wear. The waistband has an attached belt with signature wooden buckle…and it has pockets!
Les Lunes is about sustainable fashion – slow fashion – not trends. The Les Lunes line is timeless, elegant and comfortable.
These garments are not made for a season but for years to come. They are created to be worn, to be loved and to be part of your everyday life.
Les Lunes refuses to employ digital tools to alter any of their models’ photos saying, “We do not wish to change the images of their bodies to fit some unrealistic ideal. Our photos are an honest display of real women, real beauty, without manipulation.”
To that I say, “Bravo!”
If you’ve been reading my blog for some time, you know how important supporting and promoting women in business is to me. Les Lunes shares a similar stance. Anna Lecat had this to say:
“I am inspired by the Les Lunes Woman’s enthusiasm and zest for life. I have a deep respect for people that are not only living their lives fully, but also take the time to encourage others to reach their full potential. I am motivated by strong women that don’t take no for an answer and are willing to risk everything in pursuing a path or product they believe in. These are characteristics I cultivate in my own life and I am honored to be able to call many of these like-minded women friends.”
That is a philosophy I can get behind and I am proud to call myself a Les Lunes Woman!
