Early this spring, I was in New York for meetings with fashion houses. A friend, Lou Iacovelli, said, “You must see Norisol Ferrari.” So off we traipsed to Mulberry Street and a heavenly loft and studio. The collection was nothing short of fabulous. Perfectly tailored sable, leather, alligator, mink, cashmere and tweed fashioned into vests with dipped backs; high-collared, hugging trench coats circling to the ankle; hoodies in sable, alligator and mink, unbearably soft; snappy zipped jackets in golden Swakara. Images of NY girls Daphne Guinness, Marina Rust Conner and Amy Fine Collins sallied forth. And, in fact, Amy Fine Collins had just hosted a trunk showing at the Carlyle Hotel for Norisol’s collection.
Currently, the sumptuous collection is exclusively available at the very luxe and very L.A. Maxfield emporium, but PaperCity is hosting Norisol in Dallas with her complete fall/winter collection on October 22 and 23 at the Ritz Carlton, and in Houston, October 24 and 25 at Hotel Granduca.
