Spruce up your style with renowned French designers
Galeries Lafayette take pride in leading the city in terms of being fashion forward and showcasing Paris' hottest trends. Plus, they are constantly surprising the public with their exclusive collaborations with designers. The latest spring-summer collections feature talented French designer and founder of the prestigious fashion store Les prairies de Paris, Laetitia Ivanez.
Mme Ivanez grew up in Marseille, where she attended well-known drama school Florent. Her early artistic career was to take a different turn, however, when she created Les prairies de Paris with her father in 1991. Later moving to Paris to follow her design dreams, she began working on her own collection and opened her first flagship store on Paris' Rue Debelleyme in 2007. It wasn't long before her work caught Galerie Lafayette's eye, and she was asked to collaborate with the fashion giant.
This vibrant collaboration whisks us wistfully into Spring with its array of sunny shades. Simple, elegant and totally wearable (whether you're 25 or 55), Ivanez for Galeries Lafayette brings together a range of pieces for any occasion.
