The bohemian style of Loulou de la Falaise

  • By Antiques-Art-Design Sydney

Why don’t you take a leaf out of Loulou de la Falaise’s style book and brighten the winter with a bohemian attitude.

Unlike today’s fashion interpretation of bohemian, de la Falaise was a true bohemian in thought and it was her different take on the world that lead her to be the muse for Yves Saint Laurent.

A lover of the renaissance, she worked as a fabric designer for Halston before settling in Paris. From 1972 until St Laurent’s death, she worked as creating whimsical jewelry and hat designs for him, as well as inspiring and stimulating him for over three decades. Loulou - 1

A design alchemist, her idiosyncratic jewellery creations transformed unexpected elements into magical concoctions. She had a dry wit and an ability to see the giddy world of fashion with a sometimes-amused detachment.

Most of all, she was known for her fearless style.

With a singular view, she was a walking embodiment of what real style—personal, quirky, unexpected, inspiring—could be.

So why not… add a bit of bohemian flavor to your winter. Loulou - 2
