“TIS THE SEASON”

Shntung1 Shntung Shntung2

………………………Tis the season to think of Holiday parties, and special Holiday events……….I created this Shantung woven jacket just for such events. You already own so many things that you can wear under any of these three jackets……Wear it when you are going to a friend’s or family’s home, a Gala, or just want to look special as you greet guests at your own front door. Are you planning to go to a beautiful restaurant for a special night out with your friends or a date night with your special someone…..wear this.  The Alabaster color looks like shimmering Champagne, and so flattering in evening glowing light……The Black is the perfect backdrop for everything you own…..How stunning will you look in the Scarlet Red jacket at a candle lite Midnight Mass!……………….As the seasons change don’t think this lovely weightless jacket needs to be stored away……..Come spring and summer there are many many ways to continue to wear it. If you’re not sure just how to put it together….that’s what I’m here for….A297866 is the style number……….This is one of my FAVORITE THINGS!…………….Happy Holidays……………….Love……..Louis

“THE TROUSER SOCKS ARE POSTED!”

FINALLY….the trouser socks are POSTED!!!!……A283073……….in the original BLACK, and the new…….WINE…..NAVY…..and WINTER WHITE. I noticed the Q has only pics of the black. I can tell you all the colors MATCH my pants, and they are all fabulous!…….It is so nice to have a trouser knee sock that matches your pants exactly, and not only in solids but FANCIES! The solid of course is your go to basic…..your pinstripe adds some DASH, and is a lot of subtle fun……and the LACE are amazing in every color. It’s worth getting the 3 Pac in all colors just to get the LACE. The Winter White lace with the Winter White boot cut pant is amazing for the holidays. It’s also fun with a Black trouser and low cut pump or ballet flat [maybe in patent leather or velvet] worn with a W. White WK sweater and the matching WK scarf…..Fabulous all under your BLACK REEFER COATS………In the spring….the W White socks with navy pants and a red flat, for one example, will be outrageous……..and very CHIC!……..Don’t wait too long. As usual the quantities aren’t big and these are going to be great presents, and stocking stuffers……especially for yourself!!!!…………………Let the season begin……….HAPPY HOLIDAYS………………much Love……………..Louis

Thank you

Dear Friends…………..I wanted you to know that Jac and I have so enjoyed and appreciated all of your kind words. If we have been able to bring each of you a little happiness and joy that means more to us than anything. A dear cousin of ours has a wonderful expression……”what’s a hug and a kiss”…………it takes very little to be kind and caring……after all isn’t that what life is all about. Again, thank you for caring about Jac and I………………………..much Love……………………Louis and Jac

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

To all of my Dear Friends,

It’s been 17 years since most of us have met, almost 18 this May, so calling you Dear Friend seems so right to me……..On this Thanksgiving Day I want to wish you all the best. Health and the LOVE to  the ones who are dearest to you. We celebrate on this one day, but the sentiment is one to keep in our hearts every day…………………..all our Love………….Louis and Jac

The Wire Cuff

FIVE EASY PAYS

was just browsing the Linea site and noticed everything was on 5 Easy Pays…..thought I would pass that along….have a good day!

“THE BIG DEAL, RHUBARB & CLOVE”

bg

………………..Dear Friends, I see no reason why I should hold back on letting you know what is coming in Dec. since it is the last garment of the year, and I know many of you would like to plan ahead………On December 12th at 9:00pm, on the QVC2 channel, I will be presenting my last BIG DEAL of the season………………A297877 is the style number of the WHISPER KNIT, SWING SWEATER with the COWL NECK……..I will say that this was a customer request, and I think the sweater came out fabulously! It is made in my medium weight ENR WK. This sweater is all about the COWL….It’s the make or break detail, and I think it came out beautifully. The cowl is ribbed which gives it that LUSH DRAPE, and wonderful shaping……It’s not wimpy at all, and once you set it as you like….it will stay in place. On super cold days wear it up…..ALMOST like a hood for added protection wrapped around your neck. You already know the fit of the SWING BODY. There is really little difference between this and the others made in the med. weight……The colors are RHUBARB……a delicious raspberry-ish shade……………….and CLOVE…..It is not as dark as my Dark Olive, but has a rich saturated vegetable dye earthiness…like beautiful spinach!…In the photos I paired the Rhubarb with a pair of jeans, [also looks great with black, navy, grey and the new port or blackberry pant], and I paired the Clove sweater with my slim Ponte pant, A265615 in olive. They aren’t a match, but blend beautifully…..Again, all of the color pants mentioned plus the Dark Umber will look great with Clove, and I would guess many more……..I love mixing jewelry. It gives the wearer a distinctive creative appearance…….This time I mixed the new PINK MIST FLORAL and CRACKLE BEAD necklace, J350152 [already getting great reviews], with the PERFECTLY PINK SPIRIT NECKLACE, J350153……For the Clove I mixed the Floral necklace in AQUA MIST with the DESERT SAND Spirit necklace…….You should be able to get everything in time for Christmas!………The berets are from my collection that I have acquired over the years, and are not avail……I got the olive in Paris on the Rue de Rivoli in one of the souvenir shops…….so if you’re planning a trip to Paris take a walk along the street. There are lots of shops and most have berets in all kinds of colors……………………………………..Happy Holidays………………………..much Love………………………….Louis

“THE BIG DEAL, STEEL GREY & BLACK”

bg2

………………………………….The last two colors being offered in The BIG DEAL COWL SWEATER are……………………STEEL GREY….and….BLACK…………….Many of you have already purchased the STEEL GREY SUPER PONTE SLIM PANT….A297868, in anticipation of this Cowl sweater coming up…..Sizes are already broken!……..I know you are already asking the question………”how MANY BLACK SWEATERS can I own????”….My answer is….ONE MORE! Really this is too fabulous to pass up…..With black or indigo jeans, a long slim skirt, dress pants, a pencil skirt or any leather or suede bottom…..even a sequin skirt…..you will look fabulous…..and SLIM…..ALL the attention is brought to the face with the face framing cowl, and black head to toe….well what’s to say…..there is NOTHING better……….I love the INDIA pendant, J350150, on this background of black, but the pendant would look equally striking on the Rhubarb or Clove!……………On the Steel Grey sweater I have the floral necklace in Lilac Mist and the Storm Grey Spirit necklace…….a wonderfully unexpected combination…..The grey is a very frequently requested color, and it’s a beautiful dark grey…..The grey beret is from JEDRZEJKO on ebay or direct from the manufacturer. They are from Poland so it might be quicker from ebay!…………………………………………………………………………..

…………………………………………HAPPY HAPPY HOLIDAYS!……………………….enjoy…………………….much Love…………………………Louis

“SOME OF MY FAVORITE THINGS”

TN3

……………………..The WHISPER KNIT SCARF is definitely one of my FAVORITE things!!!……A295909 is the style number…..I have to confess….I don’t only make this scarf for you……I make it for me too! It is the most comfortable scarf I own……and I own a lot. I have them in cashmere….soft but hot, I have them in Alpaca….pretty but after a while itchy…..I have them in wool challis, silk paisley prints reversing to cashmere, all silk, cotton.etc etc etc……..I still like the Whisper Knit the best, and I know a lot of you do too…….Fair warning…..the GREY is on wait list. Only the PARADISE RED and WINTER WHITE are still avail. I think the Winter White scarf with a black over coat or black leather jacket for your husband or son would make the perfect Christmas gift. One of the reviewers already purchased the Red for her son’s girlfriend………perfect……no size to worry about and everyone loves red…..and PARADISE RED is special……………………..Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Jac and I placed out orders for Christmas gifts as soon as they were avail on QVC………Don’t wait for the last minute. We always get extras….you never know who you may want to gift at the last minute!……………………………………….Happy Holidays……………………..much Love…………………….Louis
