Yesterday we stopped by Lulu Guinness‘s West Village boutique to peek the Fall 2011 collection, and say hello to the gracious Lulu herself. She showed us the gorgeous patent Bordeaux bags as well as the illustrated cross bodies, which have been selling particularly well in Hong Kong. The UK-based designer says that the city, which she recently returned from, reminds her of New York 20 years ago. “It feels like anything is possible there,” she told us over champagne and truffles.
We felt like we could chat with Guinness forever–she’s extremely open and friendly–but soon enough the discussion came down to business. Her next step? Launching a t-shirt collection with Uniqlo. “All the girls in my office are so excited about it.”
Images of the collab are yet to be released, but we’ll keep you posted on the looks and the launch date. Until then, enjoy these pieces from the artist/designer’s Fall 2011 collection:
