LALAGE BEAUMONT BIO
Lalage launched her own label in 2004 having gained extensive experience designing for famous English fashion houses during the eighties and nineties. Trained in Fashion at the University of the West of England, Lalage (who is in fact English – her name is ancient Greek and pronounced La - la - ghee) began her career at Aquascutum, where she developed her understanding of the true meaning of quality. Lalage has an unrivalled appreciation of tailoring, textiles and accessories and consequently went on to design for several other celebrated English brands (Burberry and Mulberry to name but two) before her three-year sabbatical in New Zealand. Here Lalage focused her attention on buying and retailing designer clothing, returning to England in 2004 to design her first collection under her own name. Her first boutique opened early in 2006 and the Knightsbridge boutique, on Beauchamp Place (just a stone’s throw from Harrods) followed in 2012. Finally, having the space to offer accessories, the handbag collection was launched in 2015.
Lalage's creations combine classical elegance with distinctive detailing for a look that embodies sophistication and style. Taking inspiration from the 60s, her timeless designs of clothing and handbags suit any age. Demonstrating true craftsmanship and with lasting appeal, every piece is beautiful, original and chic but in an understated way, transcending the flightiness of high fashion. Lalage also designs many of her unique fabrics, some of which are woven in only a few metres, in order to offer a high degree of exclusivity. Understandably the boutique has acquired a loyal following, with customers from across the globe enjoying the subtle elegance of the collections. Feminine but without the frills, the clothes and bags are ideal for any occasion.
Living in nearby Chelsea and with her studio situated above the Knightsbridge boutique on Beauchamp Place, Lalage likes to spend as much time as possible in the boutique, meeting customers and helping with any special requirements.
