Los Angeles-based fashion designer Quinn Thompson lets his adventurous, can-do spirit guide him in creating Saint Grace, his ultra-feminine line of contemporary women’s basics. Originally from Olympia, Washington, Thompson grew up on a boat — an experience that instilled in him a sense of wonderment and possibility that continues to inform his 1970s-inspired clothing designs. Saint Grace’s brightly colored maxi-dresses and T-shirts, elegant tank tops and wide pants, asymmetrical cardigan sweaters and other separates are ultra-feminine and come in a range of luxurious fabrics — from Egyptian and Supima cotton to cashmere, rayon, modal and jersey. Founded in 2001, Saint Grace has become a favorite label of Lindsay Lohan, Scarlett Johansson and other Hollywood celebrities.
