Each week we invite a woman or man from the Linnea Lund community to talk about their relationship to clothing, their wardrobe and how they like to mix and match our signature cashmere pieces. This time, Adélaïde d'Andigné, stylist and creator of the French homewear brand, Lalide in Paris, is the #MyLinneaLund woman of the week!
"You're pretty when you're comfortable", Adélaïde d'Andigné says and we agree with her. And why not apply this mantra to outfits for home, just to perfect the cocoon spirit of the house with sets that are as elegant as they are soft to wear for lazing around or working? The homewear style, stylist Adélaïde d'Andigné first thought of it for her who has almost always created and worked from home, without ever giving up on her style or sulking on her pleasure of being able to be able to do it at any time of the day. Or for the night, slipping into an outfit as pretty as it is comfortable to stay elegant even when the show takes place between the living room and the bedroom. And this is how the Lalide brand was born in Paris. Collections of pajamas, kimonos, babydolls and other interior sets designed as envelopes of softness whose original floral prints, feminine cuts and noble and silky materials, in French satin and silk, breathe poetry and bucolic notes daily. This is all the charm of Lalide in Paris, in which one senses a connivance with "the Marie-Antoinette style", refined and delicate, and where one perceives a sensitivity for 18th century engravings, botanical plates and fabrics found at flea markets…
You guessed it, Adélaïde d'Andigné is attached to pretty details, beautiful fabrics and the know-how of the small craft workshops in France and Europe with whom she likes to work. This is how the collections are made up of Calais lace, silks made and printed in France and Portuguese knits. Values and a commitment that we share at Linnea Lund.
As for Adelaide's dressing room, it is like her apartment, sober and chic, tinted with a "range of soft and reassuring colors, a bit like those of Linnea Lund's cashmeres, soft, natural colors".
And it is moreover dressed in our sublime Angela poncho that Adélaïde receives us in her studio-apartment, to tell us about the origins of Lalide in Paris, her love for fabrics of yesteryear and the Linnea Lund pieces that she loves so much.
How would you define your style?
I try to adapt it to each circumstance. For example, the lovely Linnea Lund poncho, I can very well wear it in the countryside by the fireside, or with a black evening dress.
What is your favorite color from the Linnea Lund palette?
Gray greens, ultra-pale pinks that give a lovely complexion, and all mottled beiges.
In your eyes, what objects represent Sweden?
I'm thinking of Carl Larsson who was a painter and illustrator, who painted his family, his country house, his vegetable garden, interior scenes, and it's absolutely lovely.
Which room in your dressing room/or your apartment is your favorite?
One of the objects that is very, very dear to me is a register of fabric printers from the 19th century, and it is a fantastic source of inspiration for our pajamas.
