Violeta Sanchez who is the muse of Yves Saint Laurent and Helmut Newton is the face of Atelier Pallas. Atelier Pallas Fall ’14 will be a collection of made-to-order smokings and smoking-inspired jackets and dresses. Sanchez’s 15 year-old daughter, Luz, will also model the pieces.
Atelier Pallas is a privately owned Parisian atelier known for its “Petite Couture” tailoring. For Fall 2014 the atelier relaunched a signature capsule collection of chic minimal silhouettes based on the iconic Smoking. Phoebe Philo and Karl Lagerfeld partnered with 52year-old Maison’s expertise to develop prototypes but due to high cost the big fashion houses denied to develop a full production. As a result the head designer and successor Daniel Pallas created a new collection on its own and now this is the third collection and is selling at Bon Marche, Corso Como,matches.com and theline.com.
