IZÏA X GALERIES LAFAYETTE

For the Autumn/Winter 2016 season, Galeries Lafayette gave multi-talented French artist Izïa Higelin carte blanche to build her dream wardrobe.

Izïa’s boundless energy and authentic sensuality shine through in this very rock inspired collection that blends masculine and ultra-feminine looks.

The wardrobe comprises some twenty pieces, including a sleeveless lambskin leather biker jacket, a bomber jacket, a shiny embroidered tulle baseball jacket, fitted jeans and glossy leggings. Then there’s a sexy figure-hugging dress or skirt, waiting to be paired up with a hooded sweatshirt or body-conscious knits. Chose from a range of exciting accessories to complete the look, such as a snake -adorned silk scarf, a wide jewelry -studded belt or a chain-strap box shoulder bag.

Perfectly fitting styles and edgy design details ensure complete freedom of movement. High-quality fabrics (silk, lambskin, angora, cashmere) – teamed up with understated colors – offer endless layering possibilities, for an ultra urban fashion statement that is still cool and wearable.

Izïa Higelin has skillfully put together an affordable, edgy collection offering a multitude of combinations.

Prices range from EUR 29.99 to EUR 199.99.

As from September 21, 2016 at Galeries Lafayette Haussmann, selected regional stores, BHV Marais, and on www.galerieslafayette.com
