Loulou for Less
Though her pals in Paris still aren’t sipping the home-shopping Kool-Aid, designer Loulou de la Falaise (left) is more than happy to ply her trade on HSN. In fact, in a live segment airing on Monday, the fashion icon and former muse to Yves Saint Laurent will be unveiling more merch than ever. Having launched her line last spring with jewelry, she’s since added bags, shoes and a smattering of clothing. “Now I’ve got the full head-to-toe look,” she says, walking me through an assortment of wallet-friendly looks. (While there are a few stand-out pieces, especially some of the bijoux, let’s just say we’re not yet lusting after the clothes.) Pin-thin, wearing a number of her own HSN pieces (including cute purple suede peep-toe ankle boots), de la Falaise is pretty much textbook Intimidating French Woman. “I’m sure only about 1 percent of the HSN audience knows exactly who I am,” she says, laughing. “I guess the rest just figure it out as I go along.”
Below, a $150 necklace and $67 shoes (seriously, folks) from her line. See the full assortment here.
