But even a nearly 200-year-old perfume and skincare brand is allowed a little fun without sacrificing the standards it’s become known for. Enter the newest from Guerlain: La Petite Robe Noire Lipstick and Nail Color (a Nordstrom exclusive). Topped with whimsically adorable upside down hearts, this new collection is seriously covetable with lasting formulations, superior quality and coverage that’s tinged with a delicious, signature scent of red berries and petals.

Take a look at the jacquard skirt by Vika Gazinskayapictured here on the right. It’s like the Magic Marker stylings of an extra-gifted doodler were lifted from a notepad, taken to France and woven into a fine silk blend. Wait—it’s not like that. It is that.

I talked to Gazinskaya via Skype about the wonderfully colorful handmade patterns in her new-at-Nordstrom collection and the history that informs the look.
