Perry designed a small line of dresses and separates using Schumacher fabrics in her signature shapes, color and identifiable pop details.
Perry was eager to work with the historical company as she thought it would be fun to see her clean, minimal and modern designs in classic, opulent fabrics. The unique juxtaposition inspired the idea of the collaboration.
“Growing up in the home textile industry through my family business, I have known of Schumacher fabrics since I was a little girl. To be collaborating with them today feels totally right and to see our first eveningwear collection in their rich, classic fabrics in our modern shapes, colors and details is thrilling, explained Lisa. The collection is eye popping and completely unique. Additionally Dara Caponigro, Schumacher’s Creative Director, helped to make the process smooth, uncomplicated and enjoyable”.
“When Lisa Perry approached us about partnering with her, we couldn’t have been more thrilled. Schumacher has had a rich history of collaborating with some of the best names out there starting with fashion designer Paul Poiret in the 1920s. As Creative Director, one of my tasks is to bring Schumacher back to its roots as the premier home fashion brand. We’ve always had an eye for the cutting edge and a respect for classicism and this new partnership speaks to just that. There is nothing extraneous about Lisa’s designs; they are at once thoroughly modern and thoroughly elegant and completely right for today”.
The 13 piece collection will feature some of Schumacher’s most sought after fabrics in Perry’s favorite shapes, such as the Serengeti circle pocket tunic ($895), Zebra Palm short sleeve gown ($1795), and Les Gazelles Au Bois racer back gown ($1995). Tunics, dresses, gowns, skirt, pants and coats will retail for $895-$3,000.
Beginning March 2nd, the collection will be available for purchase exclusively at the Lisa Perry Madison Avenue boutique, Barneys New York in Beverly Hills, and at www.lisaperrystyle.com.
