“THE FOG BLUE SWEATER”

GP fish1

……………………………BLUE FOG………is the first color I’m presenting in this new FUNNEL /ROLL NECK sweater, A297861…………….The colors I chose for this sweater are romantic, and remind me of  Botticelli paintings……………”The Birth of Venus”, and “Primavera”………..This is a fully fashioned sweater done in an English rib…….The approx. length for the xxs is 25″….The yarn is a soft blend of 75% acrylic and 25% polyester. It does have texture so some who are super sensitive may  feel it. For most it’s going to be nice and cozy!…… I think the acrylic is soft, especially in these med range colors which do not absorb a lot of dye. There are small side slits as you can see in the photo at the lower right. I have the sweater paired with the Heather Charcoal Grey WK long skirt and WK scarf, at the upper left, and the new color of the Super Ponte Boot Cut pant……SMOKE…….I think those two colors together are a dream…….This really is a sweater for ANY AGE, and would make a great Holiday present……..The FLOWER and CRACKLE BEAD necklace and Earring set is new in the Aqua Mist and Antique Gold. J350152 is the style number and will be avail soon! It looks wonderful doubled and fabulous LONG if you can carry the length……….OK…I know you are wondering about the matching Beret…………….Actually, I bought doubles of the colors….one to cut up to use as a color standards for the factories to match, and one to show on the models……..I figured it would be easier to dye the yarn to match the beret instead of trying to find a beret to match the sweaters!…..They are from a company named……..Jedrzejko…….They are sold on ebay or you can order direct. I prefer ebay because if anything goes wrong they stand behind you…….The color name is……..Dark Grey……It really isn’t a dark grey at all…..It is more of a soft blue grey…………..Now you have all the info I can give………..off to the next color……………………………………………enjoy…………………much Love……………………………Louis

“THE LILAC MIST SWEATER”

GP fish2

…………..LILAC MIST……………is a BEAUTIFUL soft color……a true winter pastel…….It has the look of dried flowers or potpourri…..there is an undertone of a dusty pink……I think these SMOKEY PASTELS are a welcome break in the dreary winter months…………..You can wear the FUNNEL NECK straight up or rolled down, and it stands AWAY from the neck creating an open neckline. Due to the fact that the acrylic yarn is very light these are not heavy sweaters, even thought they look warm and cozy…..which they are……..I have used the Taupe Super Ponte Boot Cut pant, A268216 which is a beautiful balance to the Lilac Mist……Charcoal Grey, Smoke, Tan, and Navy would all look beautiful with this Lilac color…The new FLORAL and CRACKLE BEAD necklace in the PINK and ANTIQUE GOLD, J350152, adds the perfect DELICATE touch to this very feminine color…..PLEASE take a good look at the earring that comes with the necklace. It’s a beautiful earring on its’ own. Again, I love it doubled or worn LONG……………..The color of the sweater was dyed to match the BERET, which if you like is avail. to you on ebay. Jedrzejko, is the name of the company, and the name given to this beret is…….DIRTY PINK…..It’s not a name I would have chosen, but who ever translated the Polish name [the company is in Poland….yes French berets made in Poland!] didn’t have the romantic chip……LOL……..These sweaters are ageless and would work for ANY age………….I think the sweater, the necklace and earring and the beret would make a fantastic Holiday present for someone very special………………………………………..enjoy…………………………..much Love……………………………Louis

“THE CASHEW SWEATER”

GP fish3

…………………………….CASHEW……………….is the third and final color being offered in this beautifully made sweater. If you love your neutrals this is for you. Cashew is a very European color, and one you would find on an Armani runway. It is a color that is often used for expensive natural fibers like cashmere and alpaca, because they don’t over power the fiber with a lot of dye. They let the fibers breath and show their best qualities……..Again, I have chosen the new FLORAL and CRACKLE BEAD necklace in the AQUA MIST to play of of the Cashew. The pant is the new TAN TROUSER, A278303………………….The beret is called…….LIGHT BEIGE, and is also from Jedrzrjko……………………..When you want to look very sophisticated, and somewhat understated, Cashew is the right choice…..Make no mistake, the total look may be subtle, but it speaks volumes about the wearer………………enjoy………………………much Love…………………………..Louis

“THE VIOLET HAZE BLOUSE”

reefer

………………………VIOLET HAZE………….is a NEW Linea color, and the blouse is made in a NEW Linea fabric…..A298459 is the style number…..I wanted a color that was not in your face. By that I mean a color that wasn’t too bright or too harsh, or too dark, but still gives you color………..I wanted it to look VEILED…..as if someone took a sheer grey chiffon and placed it over a more vibrant violet. The veil of gray tones the violet down. That is what I wanted to achieve with this VIOLET HAZE, and I think it came out perfect………The fabric is new, but it is very similar to the flounce blouse, A294604. This fabric has natural stretch……..What is natural stretch? This occurs due to the specific weave or finish of the fabric. No spandex is necessary with fabrics with natural stretch…..it’s redundant……The previous blouse mentioned had spandex, but the two fabrics have the SAME stretch. The hand of the fabric has a slight sand washed finish, which gives it a SMOOTH DRY touch…….The blouse is approx. 26 inches long for the size 4. These blouses are NUMERICALLY sized. The sleeve has a trumpet bottom which continues to be a strong trend, and will continue all the way through next Fall 2018!….The shape is easy and follows the lines of the body, and the front has bust darts for a proper fit……………The SURPRISE of the garment is the PEEK A BOO BACK! It has a scoop which is not TOO deep and is VERY bra friendly……Trust me….we made absolutely sure about that. We even raised it more than necessary just to be on the safe side……….It’s a detail that takes the blouse from day to night. It can just as easily be worn with dress pants or a skirt….as a pair of jeans…….The top strap in the back holds everything in place and makes it very comfortable to wear. With this scoop back there is no possibility that it is too tight across the upper back area…….For you working gals, it’s perfect to wear with a jacket, or not, and then out to dinner or drinks with friends……I know the question will come up….”can I wear it back to front”. Due to the bust darts the answer is no……………..The new FLORAL and CRACKLE BEAD necklace and EARRING set, J350152, in the LILAC MIST is the perfect accessory. As you know I love BOLD jewelry, but there is a time and place for fragility……for delicacy, and for that purpose I think this is the perfect necklace. Do not be mistaken……this is not a necklace that will fade away. It has a strong presence without being bold……..The necklace and earring are due this month…………For another surprise…….look closely at the NEW SLIM LEG SUPER PONTE PANT, A297868 for reg. and A297874 for petite…..the color is………………..BLACKBERRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The fit is very similar to the A265615 slim pant, only this is in the SUPER PONTE……I hope my petites are noticing more petites are being offered, and there are more to come! These pants will be part of my Nov. deliveries…..I think the pairing of the VIOLET HAZE and the BLACKBERRY is a spectacular UNEXPECTED combination…………With all the Holidays approaching, I think this will be the perfect choice……………enjoy…………………….much Love………………………..Louis

“THE WINTER WHITE TRUMPET SLEEVE BLOUSE”

reefer1

……………………………….WINTER WHITE is the second color being offered. I don’t think anyone can have too many white WASHABLE blouses………It is a relatively simple design with, from the front only a sleeve detail, but as you know the magic happens when you turn around. You always want to look good coming and GOING! So many women don’t pay enough attention to how they look from the back, and it’s very important to look good in the back!……I chose this fabric knowing I wanted to do this blouse in Winter White, so there is NO SEE THROUGH!…..This blouse and fabric looks good TUCKED IN or OUT. I have it tucked into the Heather Grey new WK skirt, A297627 and it looks smooth and clean……Add a wonderful belt, the floral necklace and earring and you are set. For a little added drama and warmth….add the WK scarf in the matching gray, or winter white. For some color wear the scarf in the PARADISE RED………………Boots would be perfect, but if you want a dressier look try a sheer black stocking with a shoe or shoe bootie. A lace up pump would look fabulous. I always prefer a covered leg with long skirts. It can be a sheer, or opaque or fancy tight, but a nude leg, for me looks unfinished and all wrong. You will see plenty of photos of models with long skirt and nude legs, but it takes a certain type to carry it off……Trust me on this….unless you are that certain type…..wear something on your legs……………………..enjoy……………much Love…………………Louis

“THE BLACK TRUMPET SLEEVE BLOUSE”

reefer2

……………….The BLACK TRUMPET SLEEVE BLOUSE, A298459, is all about silhouette, and the shape it will give you. This is not an overly fitted blouse, and there is ease to the shaping, but it will still follow the lines of your body and be extremely flattering……What I love about black blouses is their versatility. They can be worn ALL YEAR long, no matter the season or time of day. They can be casual or very dressy. You can change the look of them with a change of bottom colors and accessories. I think the photos above are two good examples……………To the right you have the black blouse worn with my SUPER PONTE BC PANT in Winter White, and accessorized with the SILVER ETRUSCAN necklace, earring and beaded cuff. This is something that can be worn in the summer or for the Christmas Holidays…BTW, there are two necklaces on the form…..To the left the look is totally different. I have the black blouse with the new WINE Super Ponte BC Pant, A268215, and the INDIA PENDANT, J350150. The look is dark and mysterious….BTW, if you haven’t gotten the India pendant you are missing out on something special…..a one of a kind piece. There are 26 reviews, and all are 5 STAR!…..Everyone is astonished by how much more beautiful it is in person………..The black blouse is perfect for travel because you can achieve many looks with simple changes………For evening the black blouse would take on a whole different look tucked into the BLACK BOHO SKIRT with a fabulous belt, and jewelry, or even worn loose, belted or not…..For day, wear it with jeans and look very chic shopping on the rue du Faubourg St. Honore……………What do I always tell you…….PLAY!………………………..enjoy…………………..much Love………………………Louis

“THE WINE WK SWING DRESS”

reefer10

……………………….Introducing the WHISPER KNIT MIDI DRESS!………………..I think this is one you’re going to LOVE!…………….The style numbers are…..A297856 for the regular, and A297859 for the petite…………It has a beautiful V-neckline……….I am sure some will think it’s too low, but only for the most conservative. I know many will applaud!. The sleeves are long…….the body follows the lines of the torso. It has the same SWING SEAMING as the SWING WK sweaters…..so there are godets to create the swing. It drapes beautifully………the dress is made in the ENR MEDIUM WEIGHT. As far as fit you should order this dress as you would a WK swing sweater. I would say it is closest to the V-neck swing sweater. If you normally size down a size in your W Knits then that is what you should do with this dress……..There is lots of stretch! The one thing you do not want is to have a dress that is too big…..It is sized S,M,L……Notice, I have it shown with the new LEATHER/KNIT zip front jacket in WINE, J297864. This was no accident…….I planned them to go together, and they look fabulous!……………As far as accessorizing goes…….the sky is the limit….That’s what is fabulous about this dress…..every time you wear it you can make it look totally different……..I have chosen to accessorize the dress with something you may not have thought of……….the GREEN PATINA ETRUSCAN  necklace and earring set and beaded bracelet….plus the GREEN PATINA FISH……I love how the green looks against the wine…..It is totally unique…….Isn’t that what you want to achieve every time you get dressed……something unique that expresses you!…………………………..enjoy…………………………much Love………………….Louis

“THE FAWN WK DRESS”

reefer9

…………………….FAWN…………………This is a very HIGH END color……a color you would find in top quality cashmere, alpaca and very expensive yarns…….Lines like Loro Piana, and Brunello Cucinelli use colors like the Fawn as part of their essential color pallet. It’s a luxurious rich color……….This is a color that you often see on an Armani runway…….The soft silky quality of Whisper Knit is the perfect yarn to dye in Fawn. Of course ideally I would recommend beautiful soft taupe suede boots, but on the practical side Black suede will do just fine…………..I thought the MINT MIST SPIRIT NECKLACE was just the right touch to keep everything at a “whisper”……….not too much or too little. The color looks wonderful against Fawn…………………………………………………..

…………….enjoy…………………Much Love………………….Louis

“THE AQUA MIST TN SWING”

reefer5

……………………One of my most popular Whisper Knit styles is the TURTLE NECK SWING, A268137…………….One of the new colors being introduced in this sweater is the…….AQUA MIST……. It may be new for the TN, but many of you already own it in the CREPE GAUZE STAND COLLAR BUTTON FRONT SHIRT/JACKET, A287617…………………..It is the perfect color as a backdrop to the, GREEN PATINA Etruscan group and the Fish pendant arriving soon!……It is due to be posted for my show on the 20th at 4:00pm……..With the Aqua Mist I have chosen the SMOKE SUPER PONTE BOOT CUT PANT, A268216, also a new color for Oct., and a wonderful base color it is…………..When the winter months start to drag us down, and I’ve heard this winter is going to be brutal, it would be lovely to see someone wearing these easy on the eyes SOFT COLORS………………………….enjoy……………………….much Love………………………Louis
