Fall Algo Trunk Show

Posted by on 3:54 pm in Uncategorized | 0 comments

With our Fall Algo Trunk Show upon us next week, we thought we’d introduce to the uninitiated what our Algo customers implicitly know.

To experience Algo is to be treated to the essence of everything luxe. From creating your own look guided by owner & designer , Carlo Goetschel , to feeling the beauty and quality of their fabrics, which are always the best in furs, cashmere, wools, cotton. Then seeing the purity of their colors , you will be selecting pieces for you in a unique & personal way.

Algo is the definition of timeless and chic style accomplished effortlessly. It’s almost guaranteed that you will be asked, who made that beautiful blouse? Or told; love the color & style of your jacket! Whose is it?

Algo is the most natural collection in the world for every day , every night, everything. You will feel & look better than ever….That’s a promise.

My Paris Dream by Kate Betts

Posted by on 9:47 am in Uncategorized | 0 comments

As we approach Memorial Day, A perfect Summer read is, My Paris Dream by Kate Betts. Kate is a former Editor of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. It’s her second book, her memoir of coming of age in Paris between 1986-1991, working closely with John Fairchild of Women’s Wear Daily and meeting the leading French and European designers of the time. Kate joined us at The Lake Forest shop last night. Her insights into the hard business of fashion – from the concept to execution, combined with human foibles is simply a wonderful read. It’s available at The Lake Forest Book Store. Have fun.
