We were so thrilled designer Lela Rose made a visit to her Highland Park Village boutique today. We were very excited to have the designer back at Highland Park Village! Today, Lela and Deedee Rose hosted a mother-daughter luncheon at her Dallas boutique to honor Mother’s Day. Mothers and daughters enjoyed lunch together and shopped some of Lela’s most recent summer-ready arrivals. 10% of the day’s proceeds were donated to BigThought.org.

a look towards spring - we can’t wait to shop the Lela Rose spring 2013 collection at our Highland Park Village boutique!
We loved catching up with fashion designer Lela Rose to get the scoop on the holiday season (a la Lela)! What’s better than starting off 2013 with a stylish catchup with one of our favorite designers? Not much - besides gazing at her spring 2013 collection! What was she wearing this holiday season?
S&S: What are you favorite items to wear to holiday cocktail parties?
Lela Rose: I always wear white and silver. I also like white and gold and I love to wear ivory with gold. People wear way too many black clothing items. I love to standout.
S&S: What gifts do you like to give?
Lela Rose: Jams or Jalapeno Chutney. I also enjoy making napkins out of fabrics I have found.
S&S: Describe the holiday season style and aesthetic of Lela Rose?
Lela Rose: Very classic. Fabulous fabrics. Very sophisticated, but young. Shapes are very flattering, but understand the shapes. Great colors and textures.
S&S: Finish this sentence: “When in doubt…”
Lela Rose: Wear color!
S&S: What is your favorite thing about the holidays?
Lela Rose: I love being with my family and of course all the food. I also love Highland Park Village during the holidays. I enjoy outdoor shopping malls and it seems there are not enough anymore. Highland Park Village is the perfect place!
Heightening our Lela Rose obsession is the pre-fall 2013 collection. We loved viewing these images in rich mustard hues, cobalt blues, and charcoals - in the most beautiful and artistically inspired prints. There’s a gorgeous mix of color play that comprises the unique array of graphics in this collection.
Lela Rose pre-fall 2013 was inspired by the Abstract expressionist artist Clyfford Still. His use of jagged edges and large expanses of color inspired many of the prints and fabrics, as well as the dripped paint embroideries. We can’t wait to shop these styles in our boutique.
