lace up for fall at solstiss
Just in time for the lace trend that dominated the Fall ’08 runways, Solstiss, one of France’s few remaining specialists in the production of lace for luxury gowns—Jean Paul Gaultier, Karl Lagerfeld, and John Galliano are all customers—is now selling to the public. The new Comptoir de Dentelle at Solstiss’ Paris headquarters offers 1,000 lace patterns in cotton, wool, linen, silk, and synthetic blends. For a minimum order of four meters, you can choose from simple cotton lace to hand-embroidered couture fantasies priced up to $400 per meter. Solstiss, Au Comptoir de Dentelle, 6 Rue Halevy, Paris, 011-33-1-42-60-90-02. By appointment only.
