Launched in 2005, Lalage specialises in the finest occasion wear for women. Lalage designs and commissions many of her luxurious fabrics and silks from various mills in England, Italy and Spain, with made-to-measure and demi-couture pieces offered alongside RTW at her boutique in Knightsbridge. There is also an in-house alterations service available at the boutique.
Having had many years to get to known just which are the very best mills in Europe to work with, Lalage designs and commissions many of her unique fabrics and has silks dyed to her own colours every season. From the oldest tweed mill in England (which has been supplying Chanel since she began), to Suffolk mills who usually make silks for neck ties, the finest silk weavers and printers in Como and producers of exquisite Spanish brocades, the fabrics are always her starting point. Lalage’s love for tailoring combined with classic, understated elegance draws her to the 1960s and 1970s for inspiration and this along with her sumptuous fabrics is what makes her style so distinctive.
