Indulgence Uncovered ~ Lou Paris

The slight shift in the weather this week had me thinking.  I used to go to France every September to shop the stores and attend the fabric shows.  Mandatory on my agenda was a trip to the Marché Aux Puces, the celebratory Paris flea market, where inspiration can jump out from the rambling assemblage of eccentric, elegant and engaging shops.  This shopping mecca is a crossroads of art, steeped in history, and ratified by the extraordinary level of visitors who touch base there every week-end. My objective was gorgeous lingerie, laces and creative detail, but it was the atmosphere of discovery that truly motivated me.  Mining such a free style economic environment is fun.

The Lou Piccadilly collection is just the kind of collectible indulgence I could imagine myself prospecting in one of the charming retail stalls. The collaboration of old school construction with modern luxury materials is for me the essence of the Lou identity.  A beautiful Calais Leavers lace in a contemporary graphic pattern is expertly engineered into this sophisticated demi bra (13615) and shorty (51615), fitting sizes 32 – 38, B-E cups and S–XXL.  Searching the market for unique fashion gems is the definition of merchandising research.  Still relevant at 65, the award winning Lou brand is obviously a find.
