Awfully sorry if you think that I have gone off-topic , but I have taken the thread to refer to ALL the seminal Yves ' people ' who surrounded him in his heyday of the 60s.

Lady Clare Rendlesham was a great friend of Yves , as much so as Loulou , and she was one of the very few who defended Yves' ' Montmartre Poule ' collection , so much criticised in the early 70s , demanding that he send out the collection a second time to confound Yves' critics .

The next season resulted in a disaster for the RTW , as Yves took fright and sent out a collection as bourgeois and as staid as the British middle-class label , ' JAEGER ' .

Oh for the return of the days of days of Loulou , Clare , Betty Catroux and Rudolph Nureyev . Tom Ford avidly cultivated Betty Catroux , but I do not think that it got him any more kudos within the house , certainly NOT with Pierre Berge or Yves himself .

BTW , to go off topic again , did not Loulou have a very attractive interior designer brother called Alexis de la Falaise , who frequently modelled the YSL Rive Gauche Hommes collection in photographs for Vogue UK etc ?
In fact , I do have them in various back numbers of the magazine , and VERY effective and classy they are too .

My apologies for offending you , it's just that one gets such rare chances to relive the halcyon days of one's fashion youth , and this reference to Loulou and Clare brought it all back .

oh Kit, no offending whatsoever... just that i see nth related to Loulou in the article that u posted, sure we love the whole of Yves inner circle, however, that piece is more abt that Duncan guy, nevermind... looking forward to read more abt Loulou, Maxim, Alexis, Lucie, Daniel or even that related Birley family. It's a huge family tree from the UK, as well as France.

NO hard feelings , Helena and Softie have solved the problem of overlap .

More power to your elbow , dhclam , we don't have enough French perspective on TFS , so it's great to get a new voice .

loulou is crazy chic and really makes you think twice about today's style "icons." her and yves have such a warm quality about them.

De la Falaise's 'Fantasies' Line
By Katya Foreman
PARIS — Loulou de la Falaise is bringing her eye and French style to a diffusion jewelry line.

The ready-to-wear and accessories designer is to unveil her new wallet-friendly label, Loulou de la Falaise Fantasies, at Paris' Bijorhca accessories trade fair, running Sept. 1 to 4.
I think I'll need to plan a trip to Paris in early Sept.

Loulou Hits a Home Run
De la Falaise to show decor

Friday, January 26, 2007

(PARIS) Keeping in line with her attention to detail and eye for color, Loulou de la Falaise is turning her attention to home decor. At the Scènes d’Intérieur section of the Maison & Objets salon trade show this weekend, she will debut her accessories for the home, which include jewelry pots and boxes with secret compartments, underplates to highlight orchids, boxes to tidy away pencils, and a round and a square photograph frame. Inspired by visits to the latest exhibitions in Paris, recent trips, and her own flower-filled country garden, the collection is made primarily of of lacquered wood with panels of cracked eggshells. In addition, de la Falaise has fashioned a small collection of makeup bags and lingerie pouches out of her favorite fabrics, which will also be made into two-tone throws.

I went to her boutique in Rue de Cambon, I loved her stuff & the atmosphere ..if you miss the true spirit of Yves .. visit her boutique.
