Inspired by the allegories and iconography of Medieval and Baroque Europe, the AW15 collection from luxury boudoir house Layneau elevates woman to her highest form. Marked by luxurious silk, decadent velvets and ethereal laces, “Apotheosis” features a rich color palette of deep navy, bronze, scarlet red, cobalt, blush, pale yellow and dark grey. Silhouettes range from Layneau’s signature robes, gowns and bed jackets to new kaftans, cover-ups, pullovers and lounge pieces.
Layneau’s bespoke pieces are crafted by hand in the label’s Portland atelier, taking great care to both cover and reveal strategically. Named after Lindsay “Layneau” Boudreaux, an up-start French immigrant credited as the first professional lingerie designer in America, the label is a favoutire of fashion editors and stylists alike and counts a celebrity following including Taylor Swift.
