À Paris!

Bags are packed and it’s off to Paris! We’ll be there for a week taking in various museums, excellent food, flea markets, and of course, taking in the fabric district in Montmarte. Once again, we’re putting our trust to the weather gods in an effort to avoid tourist crowds but as with all travel, it’s sometimes a roll of the dice. We’re looking forward to returning to one of our most favorite places and we’ll be posting all about it here on the blog. Au revior!

Happy Friday!

It’s Friday and we’re definitely ready for the weekend. This week has been a bit of trial with the all the fires and high winds going on in Southern California so to celebrate, we thought we’d kick it off with this excellent painting by Renoir depicting a lady in an early 1870s dress. What especially caught our eye was the deep blue color, something that’s on of the foundation colorways here at Lily Absinthe. Enjoy!

What’s On…

Things have been a bit hectic around the atelier with the current fires here in Southern California but as always, we strive to persevere! Things are fine now and hopefully we’ll be back in track with developing our new pret-a-porter collections of dresses and corsets. The corsets are especially exciting and the collection offers something for everyone at several price points. We’ll have more soon! Au revior!
