Lafayette 148 New York Interviews Style Video

Behind the Brand: Emily Smith of Lafayette 148 New York on Defining a Signature Style

The Lafayette 148 New York woman is a BOSS. Her unyielding style relies on an expertly crafted and efficient uniform of silk blouses, tailored trousers and A-line dresses that effortlessly transition from the desk to dinner. Confidence is her signature style (so long as it comes in leathers, fine cottons and cashmeres).

Emily Smith, woman-in-charge and creative director of the label, finds her muse in this contemporary working woman. In the video below, Smith reminds us that the secret to being in charge is an unwavering authenticity and integrity.


Fashion Week Street Style

Street Report: Bridgit Outside Rodarte

I love all of these amazing monochromatic ensembles we’re seeing this Fashion Week. Bridgit’s chic look is pretty much perfection in cream. Her conceptual sweater vest adds a touch of texture, as does her luxe snakeskin clutch. Aviators are a classic and work seamlessly with this clean, contemporary outfit. And that little pop of color on Bridgit’s platform heels peeking out—genius!
