“THE CELADON SLEEVELESS TURTLENECK”

silver

……………………On July 27th I will be premiering a new……..”BIG DEAL”………..on QVC2 at 9:00pm………..The SLEEVELESS TURTLENECK, A293746, will be offered as the Big Deal. This style was requested by many of you. I have done many sleeveless turtle necks during my career, but in the 17 years I’ve been designing for QVC I haven’t done one! I did do a sleeveless mock a few years back, but nothing since…..So this ESSENTIAL piece is a first……To say that this is the perfect LAYERING PIECE would be an understatement….Take any shirt, sweater, cardigan, or jacket, and wear it over this TN. No worries about bulkiness or double sleeves that often twist and are uncomfortable. This makes layering EASY……. The Whisper Knit sleeveless turtleneck is made in my ENR construction [Every Needle Rib]. The yarn is my med. weight. The approx. length for the XXS is 24 inches. The sizing will be X,M, L….This is a true fold over TN. It is not a mock neck……REMEMBER…..the Every Needle Rib construction is VERY stretchy, so if the measurement for your size seam a little small that’s OK. You do not want to buy an ENR sweater that IS your measurements or it will probably be too big. That has been my experience speaking with all of the Linea Ladies, and working with my manufacturer and fit model………The color above is my new………..CELADON, and naturally it BLENDS beautifully with the Celadon Gauze Crepe open front Cardigan, A293748……..I think it’s a dreamy color, and flattering to everyone… The pant shown above is the DARK SAND CREPE GAUZE, A293755 for the reg. and A293756 for the petite……..I love the softness and gentleness of these two colors together……I would love to see someone wearing this outfit in Feb and March when everything is so bleak……………………..The PENDANT is brand new. It is called my “SPIRIT PENDANT”………There is something very calming about it. The color above is Mint Mist, though it looks perfect with the Celadon. It will be on my Aug. 25th jewelry show on QVC2 at 6:00pm……Something tells me these pendants won’t last long!……………………..enjoy………………………….much Love…………………..Louis

“THE DESERT SAND SLEEVELESS TURTLENECK”

silver1

…………………….DESERT SAND………………is the second color being offered in the new Sleeveless TN, and again it blends wonderfully with the Desert Sand crepe gauze open front cardi. The pant is the A273303 in GREY………This is a woven trouser which has been reordered, and will also be part of my QVC2 shows coming up……Sometimes it’s nice to have a classic WOVEN trouser with a zip front and buttoned waist band that isn’t a pull-on!……Trouser pockets of course……..The Desert Sand is a wonderful neutral that works with EVERYTHING. I’m sure you will be reaching for it more then you would have thought. The pendant in the black and grey, is called “Storm Grey”. It has the double fine chain with hanging tiny stones, and this too will be on my QVC2 August jewelry show………………………….enjoy…………………….much Love…………………….Louis

“THE BLACK SLEEVELESS TURTLENECK”

silver4

………………………….If there ever was a MUST HAVE ESSENTIAL PIECE…..this BLACK SLEEVELESS TURTLENECK is it!………………Start off pairing it with any black bottom……from shorts, to Capri and crop pants, to long gauze, gab, Super Ponte pants or the BLACK WHISPER KNIT PANT coming this fall!………..or your favorite black skirt. I would choose the matching WK pencil or the WK long skirt [shown above], and this too is coming this FALL!!……Then start layering to create many different outfits. Just the black TN worn with any black bottom is the perfect backdrop for ALL of your jewelry and accessories…….One look that I have always loved is a Black TN worn under a white shirt, and because the TN is SLEEVELESS this is so easy to wear……..To update the look I have the White WING COLLAR shirt, A259103, with the new Black Whisper Knit SWING TUNIC, A288394 worn over it………….very CHIC……very PARISIAN!….If layering isn’t your thing…..wear it under anything and EVERYTHING…….like the Tobacco/Black Composition print jacket above, A225867………………The RUSSIAN GOLD ETRUSCAN necklace and earring, plus the NEW RUSSIAN GOLD FISH pendant is what I chose to accessorize the “LOOK”……Who said the FISH was only for the summer???????………………………enjoy…………………..much Love………………..Louis

“THE WINTER WHITE SLEEVELESS TURTLENECK”

silver3

…………………………WINTER WHITE……………..is the fourth color that will be available in the new Sleeveless TN………….This is a MUST HAVE!…………Why Winter White?………..I like this white because it bridges OPTIC WHITE and my IVORY………….It’s still WHITE, but a little softer. You may recall the coat I did last winter in Scarlet Red, Black, and Winter White with the large gold nugget buttons…….That’s the white. I will also be doing a few more things in this color including the SUPER PONTE BOOT CUT PANT, A268216 that you all LOVE………That will be coming soon on the next Q2 show…………As you can see above I have the TN worn with the COMPOSITION jacket in the Black and White and the Black GAUZE pant, A290983, [not the crepe gauze pant]………………..Around her neck and hanging from her ear is the new ETRUSCAN NECKLACE and EARRING set in SILVER……The necklace is 72 inches long so you can wear it many different ways…..and…..it is SUPER LIGHT WEIGHT!!! There is also a matching bracelet! Heads up very few of the bracelets were ordered…..I had a lot of convincing to do to get them!!!!! but it’s a beauty…………All of this will be on my QVC2 Jewelry Show………………………………………………………..enjoy……………much Love………………..Louis

“THE BLUE SLEEVELESS TURTLENECK”

silver2

……………………………..BLUE………………and a beautiful blue it is!………….I chose the color to go with the BLUE COMPOSITION JACKET, A225867, but it’s a blue that will work with many many things you already own…………If I had to compare it to other blues I have recently done, I would say it is lighter, but still saturated. It’s a marvelous blue with white and black, as shown above or worn with navy……….Grey, ivory,tan, chino, khaki and olive are just some of the colors I would pair with this particular BLUE………….The FISH pendant in SHINY BLACK will be on my August jewelry show…..It’s becoming quite a line up!……See you soon!…………………enjoy……………….much Love………………..Louis

“THE ALABASTER WHISPER KNIT”

silver7

…………………………….There have been many items over the years that you all have requested I bring back…………As you know I rarely bring back a color……….but…………..if I brought this ENR WHISPER KNIT, JEWEL NECK, SHORT SLEEVE sweater back, A267882, and not offer it in ALABASTER I think I would have had a revolution on my hands. I was happy to do so! ALABASTER, as a Linea color, started here with this marvelous essential sweater. At the time I sold it with the color block cardigan in the Black and Alabaster. Both pieces sold out in a flash! I realized it must have been the color, because the other color combinations in the cardigan lasted quite a while and eventually went on clearance, but not this little jewel of a sweater. Since this first appeared I have done many more pieces in Alabaster, and plan on continuing this signature color…………Above, with the sweater, is A265615, the SLIM LEG Alabaster ponte pant. This is a reorder pant in the new Alabaster color, which was also requested by you……….It makes for a wonderful outfit all on its’ own…..or the perfect backdrop to layer all of your fabulous jackets and cardigans…….BTW, the reason for the obvious ridge line is that the pant is doubled and under an elastic, which holds it to the form. I can’t put pants on the form without taking it apart……….The FISH PENDANT is in the new RUSSIAN GOLD…………….ALL of these pieces, except the Fish which will be on my August Jewelry Show, are available to order right now…….I wouldn’t hesitate…..these items have a way of disappearing………………………………………….enjoy……………………….much Love………………………………….Louis

“THE PERFECTLY PINK WHISPER KNIT”

silver5

……………………PERFECTLY PINK……………I really love this pink because it is very sophisticated. I thought it was a  natural choice for this sweater, and it was requested by many of you. If you own any of the perfectly pink pieces…..whether it be the WK pencil skirt above, The zip front WK cardi or the Boho skirt, this will work beautifully……….This color is like Angel Skin…………………………………The PINK QUARTZ pendant will be on my August 25th, QVC2, 6:00pm Jewelry Show. Since it is a real stone every color is slightly different, but against the Perfectly Pink the color shows through the stone……………I know there are many of you who have been waiting for this sweater in this NEW COLOR…..it’s avail now to order…..A heads up…..I will be doing the long cardigan which has been reordered in this Perfectly Pink, so be ahead of the game and get you sweater now so you won’t have to be scrambling later……There are NO OTHER sweaters being offered in Perfectly Pink!…………………………………….enjoy………………………..much Love…………………………..Louis

“THE NAVY WHISPER KNIT”

…………………………………For all of my NAVY LOVERS!!!! This is the perfect Navy sweater………….Wear it right now with wide leg white gauze pants and espadrilles……very Chic nautical……..or for work with my new tan trouser pant, A273303, Actually, it isn’t a new pant, it’s a reorder trouser…..just the color is new……………….The Stone pendant is in the DESERT SAND COLOR, and it too will be on my QVC2 jewelry show…………………..Can you ever have enough GOOD NAVY SWEATERS???………………………………………..enjoy…………………much Love………………………Louis

“THE BLACK WHISPER KNIT”

…………………………..If you can never have enough good navy sweaters……..then you certainly can never have enough good BLACK SWEATERS! Especially when they are such an essential as this. This is a black sweater you can own multiples of………..What a great backdrop this black sweater is for JEWELRY, in this case my new “INDIA PENDANT”. I have the chain doubled which is easy to do because the back of the pendant has a flip enhancer!…and YES it will be on my QVC2 Jewelry Show…….The little earring with the red stone, as the center of the pendant, comes with the pendant…………..I have paired the top with the matching pencil skirt in black as well as the SLIM PONTE pant in OLIVE, A265615, which I think is perfect with the BRASS OX PENDANT. Going forward these olive pants will be more and more important for this fall and NEXT SPRING…..they are definitely a wardrobe builder………don’t be without!……………………………………………………….

…………….enjoy………………………much Love………………………..Louis

“THE DESERT SAND & DARK SAND CREPE GAUZE”

copper3

…………………………THREE NEW PIECES IN CREPE GAUZE!…………..The OPEN FRONT CARDIGAN, A293748………..The TANK TUNIC, A293753……………..and the PULL-ON PANT, which is being offered in Reg. length, A293755, and petite length, A293756……………..I can’t think of a better fabric to take you from SUMMER right into FALL…………..The Open Front Cardigan is made beautifully…………..The front is piped for a clean “Designer” finish. The silhouette is a gentle SWING, which gives the fabric a fluidity and flow. There are generous side slits that enable you to use the pant pockets with ease. The cardigan is also UNLINED, and beautifully finished on the inside, which also enables the cardigan to move as you walk. It has an asymmetrical hemline, not extreme, but keeps the eye moving vertical instead of horizontal……an elongating effect………….The Tank also is made beautifully. The neckline and armhole have a delicate narrow piping. There are also generous side slits in the tunic…….It is approx 27 inches long for the xxs. The fit is easy similar to the tank with the georgette border…….so whatever size you chose for that would definitely work for this………………..The Cardigan and Tunic Tank are both in…………………DESERT SAND……………….The Pull-on UNLINED pant in the Crepe Gauze is in the………..DARK SAND…….I chose these NEUTRAL colors to give you a tonal look. It also gives you a column of color without being matched……The pant has a classic silhouette…..not wide….not narrow…..a width that should work for most……It has an approx 8 inch bottom opening for the xs……………The top has a full elastic with a flat front so there isn’t any unneeded shirring over the tummy. The trouser pocket gives the languid look of a beautifully draped pant………………The LOOK is pure “Designer”……with the joy of maximum COMFORT!………………For accessories I have chosen my new ETRUSCAN pieces……all in RUSSIAN GOLD…….Russian Gold is NOT a SHINEY 12 carat gold look!!!!! It has the look of 24 carat, and it looks like gold from ancient times……..very ethnic………The 72 inch necklace has a 3 inch extender so you can double, triple and quadruple the necklace for many different looks. The bead itself was inspired from ancient cultures, and you can find similar beads at the gift shop at the Metropolitan  Museum of Art in NYC……however they will not be this length and the WILL BE five times the price. As a bonus the bead and drop earring is sold WITH the necklace. For some it may be too long, but it is easily shortened to what ever length you desire. As part of the group there is also a four row stretch bracelet, but it is a very loose fit so it should drape onto the hand……………You would never know it’s a stretch bracelet!……………….The second NEW FISH being offered is the RUSSIAN GOLD pendant…….One eye is a pale Amethyst [as shown], and the reverse side has a tonal eye, so you can wear it with anything…………….For those of you who are looking for something a little more unique, I am sure you will love these pieces in the Russian Gold………………..all of this will be on my Aug. QVC2 jewelry show………………………..enjoy…………………..much Love………………….Louis
