What offers the LA-based clothing retailer For Love & Lemon this fall abruptly differs from what you have seen with other retailers until now. Laura Hall and Gillian Rose Kern, the founders and designers of the company, who have also been best friends since childhood, will not furnish your wardrobes with this year’s trendy suede skirts, fringed ponchos or denim apparel. In general, it is typical of the clothier to ignore the current trends and generate something breezy and unique. While other popular retailers are crafting warm and comfy pieces that will be consumed quickly enough throughout the cold season, the For Love & Lemons fall 2015 collection is playing out of the system, featuring pieces that will not surely be used in your everyday life.
The name of the company “For Love & Lemons” itself may evoke a lot of positive emotions and of course a curiosity about the naming motives. In the childhood the best friends were running a little business of lemonade stand and they have grown up together with great love – two things that united the girls and led to the creation of the brand that never stops to release stunning and exquisite staples. That’s where the origins of the company’s name lie.
Similar emotions will be evoked once you hear For Love & Lemon fall 2015 collection’s name – “Gypsy Dreamer”. The collection has been designed with the utmost passion and energy by Laura and Gillian the way as to bring some gypsy twist to your life. If you are an office girl adjusted to classic outfits or an active lady, who cannot do without casual pieces, then you are definitely in the wrong place. Gypsy Dreamer will be welcomed warmly by those fashionistas that are curious about the gypsy culture and are endeavoring to look boho chic this fall as well.
What we see in the collection is just amazing – a clash of colors, nude tulle, hand-cut velvet appliques, lattice detailing, floral lace, open back solutions and a lot more refined design techniques. The collection is packed with a range of mini and maxi flaring dresses that are to make you ethereal. The shtick of Gypsy Dreamer is the illusion that you are half naked, which is due to the signature nude tulle that is so frequently used by the designers. With Vienna maxi dress on, you will seem to be covered with velvet patterns or with red floral lace if you are wearing the Luau maxi dress. No matter which dress you select, these pieces will make you equally sensual and enchanting. Each dress will bare a certain part of your body; that is for sure. The dresses crafted from nude tulle are attractively baring your legs; some dresses will entirely open your back; if the dress is with a modest back design, then it comes with a plunging neckline, intriguingly baring your chest. Sometimes you will see off-the-shoulder solutions so typical of gypsy girls.
The color palette of the collection is, of course, gypsy-inspired, with the most natural hues predominating in the designs. Now that you have tried on one of those off-the-shoulder dresses, styled your hair in messy waves and have worn your heavy jewelry, it is high time for you to dream listening to passionate gypsy songs.
