Some things never
go out of style, like stripes. Fans of the classic pattern will fall for La Ligne
, a new shopping destination that caters to — you guessed it — all things striped.
Meaning "the line" in French, La Ligne (launched by fashion pros formerly of Vogue
and Rag & Bone) offers the kind of sophisticated, streamlined pieces that won't just sit in the back of your closet — the clothes you can wear anytime, anywhere, and will always look good.
"Most women have a closet full of clothes, but only six pieces they always wear," cofounders Meredith Melling, Molly Howard, and Valerie Boster told Refinery29. "We designed this collection to be those pieces: your beloved essentials. La Ligne intends to become synonymous with the stripe. We plan to push the graphic and continuously explore its possibilities. When customers are seeking stripes — whether its a classic design or new interpretation — La Ligne should be their go-to destination."
On its website, you'll find familiar (famous) faces like Man Repeller's Leandra Medine and supermodel Lily Aldridge. Prices top out at $550, and since the company is working directly with mostly New York-based factories, you'll know that whatever piece you end up buying will be a few hundred dollars well spent.
As for the styles themselves, there's something striped for everyone, from tomboy tees and button-ups, to ladylike skirts and work-ready dresses. Basically, if stripes are your go-to, you'll never have to shop anywhere else again.
