Taking its name from a Sixties-era radical art movement — the name is Latin for "to flow" — the women’s clothing brand fLuXuS treats the act of getting dressed as a creative endeavor. Founded in 2007 by Los Angeles-based designer Martin Paquette, fLuXuS has won a celebrity following for its understated elegance and trademark burnout patterns, which hint at urban grunge. For fLuXuS, functionality is key: its striped tops, sleek dresses and other separates are easy to match or layer under your favorite V-necks and jackets. Plenty of Hollywood’s glamorous residents (Jessica Alba, for one) like to wrap up in fLuXuS's signature oversize cardigans, flattering cotton and polyester dresses, and loose-fitting printed T-shirts — all designed and produced in LA.
There's nothing drab about this crop of grays. Lace tops, striped turtlenecks, layer-ready vests, and comfy tees are joined by decidedly more daring pieces: just look at standouts like the dramatic silk trousers, the edgy asymmetric trench, and the woven canvas coat — from names like Marni, Derek Lam, Vince, and more.
When we think downtown chic, we immediately think of Doo.Ri, Tart, and Leroy & Perry. So it’s no coincidence that all of those designers (and more!) are featured in today’s roundup of trendy separates. Think studded mini-dresses, leather panel dresses, fitted jackets, and borrowed-from-the-boys tuxedo pants.
Finish your week in style: This summer sale is a grab bag of amazing essential pieces, from breezy dresses to versatile separates you'll wear all year round. Mix and match some of your favorite names in fashion, including Cynthia Steffe, Tibi, and Alberta Ferretti.
Here at Gilt Groupe, we take great pleasure in making sure your wardrobe is stocked for every situation—day, night, or in between. Case in point: This fabulous fall roundup, which includes such staples as silk drawstring pants from La Fee Verte, a black silk dress from Isabel Vu, and denim leggings from David Lerner.
