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.
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.
