A contemporary women’s line focusing on date tops. For Laquette, Tarantola believes, “Creating intrigue is the way to make a statement.” Treatment, hand feel, and fabric mixing are the cornerstones of Laquette. These essential elements, paired with strategic gathering and pleating to create volume, deliver revised classics and stand-out silhouettes. Surface interest, metallics, sheerness, subtle harmonies and layered, chromatic colorations invite one to take a closer look. http://www.laquette.com/
