New Arrivals : Farhi By Nicole Farhi
It’s back ! One of my favorite brands… We had this brand in the store when I first opened it 3.5 years ago. And it is exclusive Boutique David Lesage in Montreal!!!
Nicole Farhi is a designer from London UK, she is very famous over there and accross the planet. Her main line is more expensive but for the store Farhi by Nicole Farhi, her second line, is perfectly priced. Dresses are around 375/400, pants around 275, tops from 80 to 275 and blazers under 400. It is definitely our best pricepoint in the store.
Farhi is also known as a “day” brand. Her clothes are very easy to wear during the day, very practical, nice simple fabrics, nothing complicated. For spring/summer 2013, we received many of these easy pieces. First of all we got many cotton pieces in a variety of colors. T-shirt and tank tops in a nice soft cotton, all made in Portugal, from the same factory where Dior Homme makes its Tees.
We also got nice silk pieces. A printed top and a printed dress in black and chartreuse (charteuse is one of the main colors of the season). The top has intricate seaming details and neck line, very subtle but very well done. The dress is a nice shift day dress with pockets and an interesting drapey collar.
We also got nice cropped cotton pants in navy and white, with a perfect fit, in the nicest fabric. Another interesting piece is the navy day trench. Once again, it is simple, but the fit is awsome and easy. I also like the cotton tweed blazer, with its cropped sleeves and nice fit, it will be the perfect little summer blazer to wear over your black dress or with jeans.
Finally, Nicole Farhi is known for her accessories in resin, all made in Italy. She started doing those many years ago before Marni or Lanvin came out and made them trendy. The necklaces with ombré resin beads and grosgrain ribbons are just adorable and the bangle, chunky but so easy to wear with jeans and t-shirt.
I hope you’ll like Farhi as much as I do !
